Soaking in a Warm Bath

Soaking is the most basic kind of hydrotherapy, and walk-in tubs take it to new heights with its comfortable, slightly reclined seat. Improve your overall health and take advantage of water's most basic, ancient, and tested therapeutic benefits.

Soaking in a Warm Bath:

  • Improves your blood circulation due to the heat lightly exercising the heart to pump faster and stronger, and opening up the blood vessels.
  • Lowers your blood pressure: The heart revitalizes the cells by supplying them with more oxygen, white blood cells, and antibodies. The heart does work slightly faster in a hot soak but only proportional to the dilation of blood vessels which, in turn, lowers the overall blood pressure.
  • Cleanses the skin by opening up the skin pores and releasing some of the toxins trapped inside. 
  • Reduces headaches by dilating the blood vessels in the head to accelerate healing.
  • Reduces anxiety: If you feel more comfortable in your own skin - so to speak - you'll feel more confident in the face of life's obstacles.
  • Moisturizes the skin far longer than in tepid baths or showers.
  • Alleviates the flu by drying and breaking up mucus formation.
