Are Hot Tubs good for you in winter?

Why does the cold make aching joints worse?
When we are cold AND particularly if you suffer from poor circulation, blood flow is diverted to your vital organs away from the rest of your body out of necessity, low blood flow to affected areas is catastrophic for those already suffering with aching joints. 
 
Do Hot Tubs help relieve Arthritis?
During the Winter months many chronic conditions such as Arthritis, fibromyalgia and other conditions that cause stiffness or chronic pain are at their worst - but not to worry... the opposite happens when you’re fully submerged in a hot tub, giving relief to anyone suffering throughout winter.
 
How do Hot Tubs help improve circulation?
Your blood vessels dilate which improves circulation, sending important red blood cells around the body. You also have the benefit of year round ‘weightlessness’, relieving pressure on any aching joints.

How do hot tubs strengthen your immune system?
Using a hot tub to elevate your core body temperature can help stimulate your body’s production of white blood cells, so can the simple act of being outdoors and breathing in healing fresh air. Meaning using an outdoor Hot Tub will help strengthen your immune system & improve your body’s ability to fight off bugs and viruses.

There is much more than what meets the eye with a Hot Tub, fun and relaxation is just the tip of the iceberg!
