How Baths Can Improve Your Health

How Baths Can Improve Your Health

You likely take a shower several times a week, but when is the last time you enjoyed a long hot bath? Baths have many scientifically proven health benefits, so suds up in a leisurely soak to enjoy these three benefits.

Decrease Pain and Inflammation

There are many reasons that people experience pain throughout their bodies. You might have sore muscles from an injury or simply working out too much, but you might also have a more serious health condition. Whatever the case, you'll be interested to know that a bath can relieve some of the pain and inflammation in your body. People with multiple sclerosis benefit from hydrotherapy because water pressure and heat relieve discomfort. Water therapy can also help people with Parkinson's disease feel better and have a better quality of life. Even if you don't have any health issues, a hot bath can relax your sore muscles after a strenuous workout.

Improve Circulation and Heart Health

Do you want to give your heart a little exercise without going to the gym? Try taking a bath. Warm to hot baths cause your heart to beat faster, giving it a bit of a workout. If you have a pre-existing heart condition, you should talk to your doctor before getting in a really hot tub because this can put your heart in distress, but a warm soak is fine for most people. Plus, since your heart is beating faster, it's also improving your circulation, which has a wide range of health benefits.

Makes You Feel Happy

Getting into a warm bath boosts your mood and combats negativity. Being submerged in warm water reminds us of the comforts of the womb, and this comfort soothes anxiety.

Whether you have time in the morning or need to save your bath time for after the kids are in bed, take an hour a week to enjoy a hot soak. Your heart, muscles, and mood will thank you.
