How can hot tubs reduce blood pressure?

Relax Away High Blood Pressure

A spa can help increase blood flow and actually lower blood pressure. Relaxing in hot water makes the heart beat faster and move the blood more rapidly. Initially, this creates slightly higher blood pressure. However after a few minutes, blood vessels dilate, the newly warmed blood spreads throughout the body and blood pressure drops. This helps creates a wide variety of health benefits, from relaxing the muscles and increased circulation, to a deeper, more relaxed sleep. That's why many doctors and physical therapists prescribe a hot tub to help their patients relax at the end of a long day.
