Hot Tubs & Your Health: Upper Respiratory Health

Problems that are often associated with upper respiratory health are asthma, allergies and sinusitis. Common colds also fall under this category.  What many people don’t know is that hot tubs can be very beneficial to you if you have upper respiratory health problems.
Steam often rises off the surface of the water because the water in a spa is so warm. The steam can help open up your sinus passageways by reducing inflammation which in turn helps with congestion. The steam also helps to soothe dryness during winter months making it easier to breathe.
Soaking in a hot tub raises the body temperature and results in increased circulation and blood flow. Improving circulation helps in maintaining upper respiratory health.
Stress is very common in people’s lives. Something that many people don’t know is stress actually causes strain to your respiratory health. Stressful lifestyles cause the heart to work harder making breathing more rapid and shallow, relaxing in a spa can allow for deeper, healthier breathing patterns.
