Spas offer a wide range of hydrotherapeutic benefits, allowing a transformation of the mind, body and spirit with the press of a button. Some of the benefits provided by a spa include:

Weight loss and Cellulite Reduction
It has been shown through a number of recent studies, that the use of spas and hot tubs assists with weight loss and reduces the visibility of cellulite. The hydrotherapeutic elements of a spa promote better circulation by relaxing the skin and muscles. Good circulation has also been proven to increase heart rate and reduce blood pressure. The appearance of cellulite is also reduced through better circulation. The use of swim spas also acts as a good exercise and body toning activity, through swimming or walking against the resistance of the water jets. It is just like walking or swimming on the spot! Therefore you can enjoy the benefits of exercise in a soothing warm spa - often ideal for people who can't undertake vigorous exercise.
