Every year we meet with more and more medical professionals who are interested in owning a hot tub. Medical professionals of all types often work long hours. Their job is frequently stressful or even traumatic. Shift work isn’t uncommon — which can make getting enough sleep extra challenging. With all these compounding factors, it’s not surprising that many medical professionals (and medical students in particular) are vulnerable to anxiety, sleep deprivation, and other mental health problems.
Ancient wisdom has led healers since time immemorial to turn to heat and water to cure a broken body and mind. While we’re not sure if there’s a “randomized controlled trial” on the use of hot water to calm the soul, we can say from experience that there’s nothing quite as blissful as sinking into your spa. The warmth and water pressure is like a much needed embrace after a long day. The water cradles your body as you melt into the heat and let your stresses ease away.
Canadians of all professions are working more and sleeping less than ever. One of the best ways of improving your sleep is to create a calm, relaxing bedtime routine away from screens and obligations. Research has found that soaking in hot water during the evening significantly increases sleepiness at bed-time, slow wave sleep, and stage 4 sleep.
Research on meditation, mindfulness, and exercise has repeatedly found that all three are amazingly good for the body and the mind. Perhaps that’s why so many of the medical professionals who are looking at hot tubs are choosing larger, MAAX powerpool swim spas that are fully equipped to allow for aqua fitness, strength training, or swimming! Powerpool swim spas are a home swimming pool, hot tub, and home gym all in one convenient package.
