Healing pain through hot water immersion
FOUR WAYS HOT-WATER IMMERSION IMPROVES HEALING
March 22, 2015
Does immersion increase circulation?
Yes. Like exercise, warm water soaking heats up muscles thereby increasing blood flow to those muscles. That’s why warm water immersion, such as that provided in a portable hot tub or therapy spa, is frequently the preferred method of therapy for injuries, burns, trauma and more.
What benefit is derived from increased circulation?
Increased blood flow. When more blood flows to injured or distressed muscles and joints, it carries more nutrients to those areas helping cells to regenerate and speeds up the healing process.
Does increased circulation help with pain?
Yes. There are certain chemicals that are produced in the body when muscles are over exerted, such as lactic acid for one. Warm water soaking helps remove pain-causing chemicals that build up in tissues by increasing the circulation of blood. The results are muscle pain goes away faster.
How can I have access to warm water soaking?
It can be as challenging as finding therapeutic spas near your home or as easy as investing in your health and longevity by buying your own personal healing hot tub and having it placed just outside your back door.
