Five Health Benefits of Taking Regular Baths

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we create portable, walk-in bathtubs that make it easier for everyone to enjoy a regular bath, no matter how hard it is for you to get around. We recognize the value of being clean, and also want you to enjoy the lesser known benefits of taking baths on a regular basis.

Improved Mood

It’s actually been scientifically proven that a bath at the end of every day can improve your mood and optimism toward life. This is because of a combination of isolation, body positioning, warmth and comfort. So if your mood is struggling, enjoy a quiet bath every day.

Relieving Skin Conditions

Baths can help to alleviate discomfort from common skin conditions such as psoriasis. Oils and medications can be used to moisturize your skin and remove dead cells, removing some causes of infection. Pain and swelling from skin conditions can also be reduced with a nightly bath.

Reduced Muscle Pain

Heat from a bath can also help to relieve common muscle pains. Set your bath temperature to a similar heat as a hot pack in order to produce pain relief in your muscles. This can increase the temperature of the muscles and block the pain sensors.

Sleep Better

You know how important a good night’s sleep is, but do you know how a bath can help you get it? The body starts to cool off and produce melatonin, which helps to induce sleep. Heating your body up artificially right before bed can actually help you to start to feel sleepy. Once you’re out of the bath, give yourself time to cool down, then slip into bed and sleep great.

Reduce Cold Symptoms

A hot bath produces steam, which can actually help to reduce cold symptoms in some situations. Clear out your nasal passage and reduce inflammation with a bath when you are feeling the common cold come on.
