5 Benefits of Hydrotherapy and Portable Hydrotherapy Units

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we are proud to produce the world’s only portable walk-in bathtub. Our portable deluxe and hydrotherapy tubs make it easier for everyone to enjoy a regular bath, no matter how hard it is for them to get around.

While we recognize the value of them making you feel clean, we also want you to enjoy the other benefits that our portable hydrotherapy walk-in tubs can offer.

Muscle Relaxation for Chronic Pain

The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine reported that hydrotherapy offers a viable option for improving mobility, pain, and quality of life for those who suffer from arthritis. Hydrotherapy has also been found to help soothe muscles and allow them to relax. The warm water even makes it easier to do gentle stretching in the hot tub, and this stretching aids in increasing grip strength, mobility, and flexibility.

Elevates Mood

Studies conducted at Washington State University discovered that soaking in warmer water positively affects the autonomic nervous system, producing changes that are often felt during relaxation. This is caused by a combination of isolation, body positioning, warmth, and comfort. So if you’re feeling stressed, enjoy a quiet bath every day!

Helps Relieve Skin Conditions

Adding colloidal oatmeal to a hydrotherapy bath can have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that can be helpful for patients with common skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema.

You May Sleep Better

It is essential to get a good night’s sleep, but did you know a hydrotherapy bath can help you get it? Soaking in hot water about an hour and a half before you go to sleep triggers your internal thermostat to lower your temperature. This process encourages the production of melatonin, which will help you fall asleep easier.

Helps Boost Immunity

Since hydrotherapy tubs increase blood circulation, hot water hydrotherapy can help boost the immune system, aiding it in working more efficiently. The stimulated immune system also helps injured tissue heal faster.
