Winter is upon us, even in balmy Queensland, and what better way to get cosy than in a jacuzzi! Jacuzzis, more commonly known as “spas” in Australia, as jacuzzi is a brand name are a great way to keep warm and maintain winter health.
Spending time in a jacuzzi on the Gold Coast in winter might seem counterintuitive, but it is a great way to improve health and aid in relaxation when the weather cools down. Whether you’re coming home after a long and stressful day at work, or looking for a way to wind down on the weekend, nothing makes a lazy winter evening better than easing tired and aching muscles into a warm, bubbling hot tub. Up your enjoyment with some hot chocolate or a (plastic) glass of something bubbly and prepare a warm and fluffy robe and slippers to keep you snug when you hop out. Add your other half or bestie for a chat and a laugh, and you’ve got a treat that’s hard to beat!
And spas aren’t just for the evening, a jacuzzi turns your home into a luxurious retreat, anytime you like! So if you want to make your home a winter wonderland and find out more about Aqua Pulse’s outdoor spas for sale, contact us today.
Nothing warms up your body like a long soak in a spa. Hop in regularly to get your circulation going and you’ll avoid winter aches and aid sleep, promoting a general feeling of well-being. Spas can also aid in relieving symptoms of colds and flu such as sore, aching muscles and stuffy noses. A soak before bed can also help promote a good night’s sleep and as you know, sleep is what your body needs to rejuvenate and heal.
But getting some quality sleep when your nose is runny and your body is achy, can be easier said than done, particularly if you have kids to take care of as well. The good news is that soaking in your spa is naturally relaxing which can help reduce stress and promote better sleep – and it takes less time than you’d think. Your body responds quickly to de-stressing in the spa in the same way that it would during meditation or yoga, without the need to do anything other than soak…which is most likely all most of us can manage when we’re sick! And, once you get out of the water, your body temperature decreases which increases feelings of sleepiness, getting you ready for a nice deep sleep to help you recover.
Just one 15 minute relaxing soak in your hot tub can improve sleep and help your body recover faster. Remember to make sure you have something warm to wrap yourself in on the trip from spa to house, and make sure your home is nice and warm too.
And the number one way to beat sinus pain is a soak in a spa. Hot tubs raise steam which help to relieve those horrible winter feelings of heavy heads and painful noses. The cause of this pain is congestion, which blocks your nasal passages and causes painful tension headaches. When congestion is making it difficult to breathe, eat, or sleep, take 15-20 minutes to soak in your spa and break out the essential oils such as eucalyptus and peppermint. The heated steam from the water can enter your nasal passage to help soothe and shrink swollen membranes, loosen congestion. Adding some essential oils to an aromatherapy balm or humidifier can allow your tension to fade away, aiding in sleep and the all-important ability to breathe! And, many of our spas come with built-in aromatherapy dispensers. Click here to find out more.
Did You Know…
The wellness properties of spas have long been recognised. The word “spa” originally referred to a location of a mineral or natural hot spring. In ancient times, people travelled huge distances to bathe and enjoy the restorative effects of hot springs. Over time, these hot places became the holiday destinations for the wealthy, offering various types of entertainment, and other health and social experiences. Bath Spa in the southwest of England is one such place which still thrives to this day. Originally home to the Roman Baths, it became popular again in Victorian times when high society visited to take the waters and relax in the hot springs and maintains its popularity to this day.
