Hot Tub Health Benefit: Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a widespread condition characterized by targeted pain points, sensitivity to pressure, difficulty sleeping and other issues. More than 5 million adults in North America suffer from Fibromyalgia, which affects more women than men, with a ratio of appoximately 7-1. 

For many people diagnosed with fibromyalgia, the pain and tenderness is constant, but the severity changes from time to time. For some people with fibromyalgia, the pain may be so severe that they are unable to do the things that they would otherwise love to do. Fibromyalgia's negative impact on a person's quality of life is what often makes fibromyalgia so difficult to manage. 

Some genuinely effective relief from the symptoms of fibromyalgia can come from regular hydrotherapy sessions in your Sundance Hot Tub. Daily hot tub use can provide pain relief, relieve pressure and ease stiffness from painful joints and improve circulation and sleep quality.

Heat, Buoyancy & Massage

By soaking in the warm water of a Sundance Hot Tub, your body is supported by the water and becomes buoyant, reducing stress on muscles and joints and immediately reducing pain. Warm water and jet pressure can also increase blood flow, helping to nourish body tissues.

Ultimately, this combination of heat, buoyancy and massage which is known as Hydrotherapy,can lead to increases in our body's “happy hormones”. Increased levels of dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphins interacting with receptors in the brain will lead to feelings of calmness, happiness and restfulness. Endorphins are often reffered to as our body's natural painkiller, and regular hot tub use has been proven to eleveate our body's levels of them by increasing blood flow and deepening our breathing.

Targeted hydrotherapy Jets can provide massage therapy to paticular muscle groups. Patented Jets, Such as the Fluidix Intelli-Jet and Vortex Jet provide an array of different massage styles and are all fully adjustable to suit your bodies needs.

From soft to deep tissue and straight stream to pulsing or rifle action, the numerous massage options in a Sundance Hot Tub provide pain relief exactly where you need it, whenever you need it.

A daily routine of one or more 20-30 minute sessions in a Sundance hot tub, spa, jacuzzi or whirlpool can help fibromyalgia sufferers feel pain relief and enable them to continue their day to day lives with more comfort and ease.
