Could A Hot Bath Really Be The Answer To All Your Problems?
Most of us love a good bath; it is a chance to get some much needed me-time and soak away the stresses and strains of everyday life. As well as being incredibly relaxing, taking a hot bath also has some great health benefits. After a long hard day at the office, a nice relaxing bath is just what the doctor ordered; you can even experiment with what you add to your bath to really soak those cares away. Try candles, soft music, a few bath salts or some scented oils to really make your bath a truly personal experience.
Most people are aware of the deep muscle relaxation that a good bath can provide, but the health benefits go further than this. A hot bath can also reduce cramps, tension headaches and improve muscle elasticity. Lots of people go for massages in a bid to easy aches and pains but a hot bath actually works in a similar way in that your muscles are relaxed and soothed by the warmth of the water. A good tip is to follow a warm bath with some gentle stretching as this can help to keep muscles supple. It is not uncommon for people who have hot baths on a regular basis to find that they can actually cut down on the amount of trips to the chiropractor they need.
As well as physical benefits, a hot bath also has some great psychological advantages. For some, time in the bath is the only bit of alone time they get throughout the day and they use it to relax, unwind and generally chill out. Use a hot bath as your alone time and you will soon feel as though your mind is clearer.
You should aim to get the temperature just right so as though to get the best results. Not so hot that it’s uncomfortable but hot enough to induce a sweat. This will help remove toxins from the body and increase the circulation of the lymph system. This can help increase lymph drainage and generally improve health. By simply adding nourishing oils to your bath, you can really enjoy a good pampering session. You will emerge from the water with soft, supple skin that is beautifully moisturized.
Unfortunately, as we get older our mobility diminishes and many people find it hard to maneuver themselves into a standard bath. However, many of the common ailments that the elderly suffer from on a daily basis could be eased or even solved by a nice hot bath. Therefore, there are now a variety of different bath lifts available on the market to help assist seniors, elderly and the disabled when it comes to taking a bath. The bathroom is notoriously one of the most dangerous rooms in the house after the kitchen, therefore is the one area of daily life that most incapacitated people need help with. So many things could go wrong in the bathroom when you think that you’ve got slippery floors, sharp corners and hard surfaces all to contend with.
