Mind and body benefits spa style
Bringing family together and providing reprieve from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is centric to spa living. But there’s more to warm water than just enjoyment and kicking back. Sinking into a spa also ignites positive change, restoration and function for both mind and body. With wellness, rejuvenation and physical benefits intrinsic to the spa experience, staying true to form is what it’s all about, here’s why . . .
Recover and Rejuvenate
A daily dip into a Trueform spa won’t erase the events of a busy day, but it will help you ease the stress. How? With hydrotherapy power. The combination of warm water and jets help to stimulate endorphins, opening your skin’s pores and combating physical pain. The end result is mental and physical relaxation with improved blood flow and an increased feel-good factor. Skin also gains from spa use. The charge and temperature of the water opens pores and aids the release of toxins, leaving it supple and detoxified. A win-win for body and soul!
Achy Joints and Arthritis
A long hot soak will get you floating – literally! This is good news for joints and muscles. The buoyancy of water means we only feel about 10% of our body weight when immersed in a spa pool. This immersion into the light-weight zone, reduces the force of gravity on joints, aiding inflammation which is great for the elderly and those whose mobility may be compromised. A daily spa also benefits the muscular system, relieving pressure head to toe, resulting in a decrease in swelling and inflammation. This is ideal for those who are physically active and sporting centric.
A daily dip in a Trueform spa won't just open your pores, it’ll also opens up your blood vessels. Immersing in warm water aids the cardiovascular system in more ways than one. It allows the muscles to relax and the blood vessels to open up, which in turn, this lowers blood pressure and promotes greater blood flow.. When you submerge in warm water you actually achieve the same lowering of blood pressure you do when exercising for 20 minutes or so – minus working up a sweat!
As far back as ancient times, hydrotherapy has been used to relax the mind and today it’s no different. Water therapy doesn’t just allay physical stresses but it promotes mental strength. Essentially the process is simple, the hotter temperatures cause our vessels to relax which brings blood to the surface. This helps move blood away from the core, resulting in a greater core clean and relaxation of the pituitary gland, decreasing stress by balancing out hormones like cortisol, and our happy hormone, serotonin. This makes spa time the perfect balancing act.
A good night’s sleep is essential to a better mindset, physical fitness and energy charge for the day ahead. However, catching enough z’s is not always an easy feat which is why a daily spa may be just the dose you need before bed to ensure a better night’s rest. Why? Well in the name of science, the rising and cooling of body temperature a spa provides helps us to fall asleep more readily, and stay asleep. The process doesn’t have to be a long one, a simple ten-minute soak is enough to raise your body temp and then relax you as your body cools down post-spa.
Trueform spas are equipped with ozonators – a device that artificially produces ozone, a powerful combo of UV light and oxygen. Why feature ozone in a spa? Because it’s a powerful oxidant, killing most bacteria and microorganisms in the water and acting as a robust purifier. Not only is an ozonated spa better for the operation and life span of the spa, it’s better for its users, promoting an ultra-clean, safe and healthy environment to swim, relax and recharge in.
