Say goodbye to sleep problems

Studies have found that many of us are suffering from sleep problems, with recent research from the University of Glasgow finding that as many as 51% of people in the UK have trouble getting to sleep. Not getting enough rest each night can affect you the next day, with many people reporting that being sleepy during the day time can make every day activities a struggle.

The Better Sleep Council recommends establishing a relaxing bedtime routine, and this includes soaking in hot tub or a warm bath to help maintain a healthy sleep cycle. The gentle and soothing water of a Sundance Spas hot tub is the perfect place to establish your night time routine.

Sleep Benefits of Hot Tubs: Whether it's difficulty falling asleep or episodes of waking up and being unable to easily go back to sleep during the night, you probably experience a less-than-good night's sleep from time to time. When lack of sleep becomes a chronic problem, it can start to affect you in many ways.

How important is a restful night's sleep?

Studies show that:

  • Sleep helps the brain commit new information to memory.
  • Chronic sleep loss affects the way the body processes and stores carbohydrates, which may lead to weight gain.
  • Tiredness from poor sleep can play a part in car accidents.
  • Lack of sleep can make you irritable and make it hard for you to concentrate.
  • Serious sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension.
  • Eventually, chronic sleep loss can diminish the disease-fighting capabilities of the immune system.

You can improve your ability to fall and stay asleep at night time by learning to relax beforehand, and hydrotherapy in a Sundance Spas hot tub can not only help to promote relaxation but can also ease tension. Buoyancy reduces body weight by up to 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles, and massage helps to reduce stiffness and muscle soreness.

As well as these benefits, spending some time in a hot tub can also encourage your body to produce endorphins which stop pain and stress signals from reaching your brain. The effects of this can stay with you after you have completed your spa session so you’re content and ready to get yourself off to sleep.

The massage options provided by Sundance jets can help you ease stress and tension. For example, the patented Fluidix Nex jets focus on the neck muscles which is a common location for tension, and the different massaging actions available ensure you get the perfect massage for your needs.

You could also consider using the aromatherapy options that are available with certain spas to make you feel rested and ready for sleep and certain fragrances, such as Summer Rain from the SunScents aromatherapy collection, have qualities that calm the mind and enhance relaxation.
