Sleep Benefits of Spas: 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.
Learning to relax in preparation for a good night’s sleep can help improve the chances of falling, and staying asleep. Hydrotherapy by Sundance Spas helps ease tension and promote relaxation. Heat loosens constricted blood flow. Buoyancy reduces body weight by up to 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles. And massage helps to work out stiffness and muscle soreness.
Sundance hydrotherapy also stimulates the production of endorphins, which naturally block pain and stress signals from reaching the brain. Their effects can linger after your spa session has ended, too, so you feel more content, and ready to sleep.
Sundance jets provide many massage variations that can help you release feelings of stress. Patented, adjustable, Fluidix Nex jets, for example, pinpoint the neck muscles, where many people experience tension. You can opt for high- or low-level massaging action with these, and many other, Sundance jets.
You may also want to try using aromatherapy fragrances, in select spas, to help induce a restful state. Certain fragrances, such as Summer Rain from the SunScents aromatherapy collection, have qualities that calm the mind and enhance relaxation.
According to the USNational Institutes of Health, approximately 70 million people in the United States are affected by sleep problems. A poll released by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) found that 43% of women surveyed say that daytime sleepiness interferes with their daily activities.
One way to ease into a deep, restful sleep? The Better Sleep Council recommends establishing a relaxing bedtime routine, such as soaking in hot water (a spa or bath) to help maintain a healthy sleep cycle. The gently massaging hot water of a Sundance spa is a natural place to establish a deeply relaxing, nighttime routine.
