Introducing our new Scandinavian wood-fired hot tubs
Our new hand crafted Eco-Tubs are not only more economical than our original hot tubs, they’re also beautiful to look at!
As we begin rolling them out across our resorts, starting with the St Ives Lodges and St Ives Studio at Clowance, we thought this was the perfect time to take a closer look at some of the health benefits which come with soaking in these stunning, wood-fired tubs.
They can alleviate stress and help you sleep better
If you’re feeling stressed, then you may struggle to fall asleep or even suffer from insomnia. Soaking in a hot tub can help you to relax and unwind, making it great stress reliever. The warm water also relaxes the body and, as a result, can help you to fall asleep faster and enjoy a better night’s sleep.
They can provide effective pain relief
The warmth and weightlessness your body experiences in a hot tub means it’s perfect for relieving aches and pains or helping alleviate the symptoms of chronic conditions such as arthritis. The warm water raises your body temperature, increases blood circulation and mobility, and helps to reduce swelling. Heat also stimulates the release of endorphins, while the massaging effect of the water can help soothe sore muscles after exercise.
They can help treat diabetes and promote weight loss
According to Naked Flame Eco-Tubs, a recent study of patients with type 2 diabetes found that those who soaked in a spa for 30 minutes a day, six days a week, lost nearly four pounds after three weeks. This is without making any changes to their diet, exercise habits, or other lifestyle factors. Their blood glucose levels also dropped, on average, from 182 mg/dl to 159 mg/dl and their A1c levels dipped from 11.3 to 10.3.
They can help you live longer
When you are immersed in water up to your neck, your cardiac volume (the volume of blood pumped per unit of time) increases by nearly 30%, meaning you can undergo a cardiovascular workout just by sitting in a hot tub. Maintaining a healthy heart can help keep serious health problems at bay and, as a result, can help you live longer!
