Unwind After a Workout
Maybe, like many other Canadians, you have just finished the Terry Fox Run, or maybe you are training for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Perhaps you are hitting the weights to get ready for the upcoming hockey season, or are just working out for the sheer fun of it. Whatever the reason for your workout, after you have finished no doubt you feel great about the effort you have put in, and are excited about how much stronger you are going to be as a result. You can also probably feel feel soreness or tension in your muscles.
To get the most benefit out of your exercise, it is important to remember to follow up your workout with some muscle relaxation. Not only do you need to stimulate your muscles, you also need to provide them with enough rest and relaxation to heal and repair themselves so they are able to grow stronger.
One of the best ways to alleviate the discomfort felt in tired joints and muscles is by easing into the clean, warm waters of a Sundance Spas Hot Tub. The combination of heat, buoyancy, and massage is designed to deliver highly effective Hydrotherapy and is a great way to unwind and decompress your muscles after a vigourous workout!
Once your workout is complete, you should give yourself time to cool down and drink plenty of water to rehydrate before hopping in to your Sundance Hot Tub. Cooling your muscles with an ice pack before soaking in your Hot Tub will help reduce any inflamation and increase the benefit of your Hydrotherapy Massage.
The first element of Hydrotherapy is heat. Heat opens up blood vessels, which increases blood flow and supplies oxygen and nutrients to reduce pain in joints and relax sore muscles, ligaments and tendons. The warmth also decreases muscle spasms and can increase range of motion. The warm waters of a Sundance Hot Tub can improve the flexibility of tendons and ligaments, reduce muscle spasms, and alleviate pain.
The natural buoyancy of your Sundance Hot Tub's water reduces your body weight by 85-90%, relieving pressure on your joints, spine, ligaments and muscles. By reducing stress on the body, buoyancy promotes speedy healing of sore muscles.The gentle resistance force of the water also helps in re-building muscle strength if you have suffered an injury.
Sundance Hot Tubs' Hydrotherapy Jets deliver moving water to various parts of your body in a variety of massage styles, relaxing tight muscles and promoting the release of endorphins, your body’s natural pain reliever.
The patented Fluidix Hydrotherapy Jets are the most versatile and controllable hot tub jet available. Exclusive to Sundance Spas Hot Tubs, Fluidix Jets allow you to adjust the flow level of the water, adjust the amount of air flow to increase or decrease the power of the massage & adjust the massage style (Direct Stream/Oscillating/Pulsing/Swirling/Horizontal or Vertical Flow) you can customize your Hydrotherapy Massage to perfectly fit your needs.
After a good workout it is not unusual to feel both physically and mentally drained. soaking in your Sundance Hot Tub will not only sooth sore muscles, but will enable you to relax and recover from emotional exhaustion as well as physical.
Adding some Aromatherapy Crystals to your Sundance Hot Tub's water can increase relaxation levels. Fragrances such as eucalyptus help you breathe better as well as helping you relax.
Working out can wake up your muscles, and in some cases exercising in the afternoon or at night can cause sleep deprivation. If you’re not getting a good night’s sleep, you won't be able to perform at your best. Sundance Hot Tubs are a great way to help get you back on track. Soaking in your Sundance Hot Tub after a workout or before bedtime will help you fall asleep faster and get a good sound sleep.
