If you’ve been considering pool remodeling, why not throw a backyard spa into the mix? Maybe you don’t have a pool or spa, and you’re asking yourself why you should build one? There are a wide range of health, entertainment, and aesthetic benefits. A backyard spa can also be built in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Health Benefits of a Backyard Spa
Some of the health benefits include improved cardiovascular health, better sleep, reduced aches and pains, and even the potential for lower blood pressure. A couple of other health benefits to consider are stress and headache reduction.
In general, immersing yourself up to your neck in water gives you a cardiac workout. Water puts more pressure on your body, which increases your cardiac volume. When you soak in water, your heart works harder, which improves your health.
Better Sleep and Reduced Pain
The hot water in your spa helps promote relaxation, thus helping you sleep. The heat increases your body’s temperature and relaxes your muscles. You’re tired and now relaxed, so it will be more comfortable to sleep.
The hot water can also help alleviate aches and pains associated with athletic injuries such as pulled muscles or even arthritis.
Lower Blood Pressure
A Mayo Clinic researcher conducted a study that showed that sitting in a spa can lower your blood pressure. That is excellent news for those that are at risk of heart disease or suffering from hypertension. The research showed that hot water increases your heart rate while lowering your blood pressure.
Not only is the relaxation and warmth good for you literally, but figuratively, as well. Sitting in warm water and feeling these health benefits can reduce your stress. The reduction of stress can have positive impacts on your mental and physical health and can create a feeling of general well-being.
Between dilated blood vessels, relaxation, and warmth, spas can also help reduce headaches. By dilating the blood vessels, pressure in your head can decrease and help get rid of headaches. The general warmth and relaxation will continue the process.
Entertaining and Aesthetics
When considering the benefits of adding a spa to any pool construction project, entertaining is a good reason to take the dip. If you enjoy having people over, a spa is going to give you a reason to do so more often. Since you reside in a warmer region of the country, you have milder winters. Our mild winters mean more time to enjoy your outdoor space, especially a spa.
Some pools and spas are built to be enjoyed and visually admired. A spa can establish a theme in your yard and set a mood. Your spa can become a focal point in your yard. Water has been known to have effects on the senses; just looking at it has a calming influence.
