Hot Water Wellness is a free educational site designed to spread the good news about the therapeutic benefits of immersing oneself in hot water.
There are several factors that contribute to the efficacy of hot water therapy, but two of the most significant are heat and buoyancy. While heat tends to dilate blood vessels and improve circulation (thereby improving the flow of oxygen to various parts of the body), buoyancy reduces pressure on joints and muscles and helps to relieve tension.
Imagine: your first step toward better health could simply be to submerge yourself in warm water and relax for a while. It doesn’ t get much easier than that!
