You know that a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can ease aches and pains in your back, legs, or shoulders. But can a hot tub relieve headaches? The answer is yes. Read on to learn more.
Tackling Tension Headaches
A tension headache, also known as a stress headache, may stem from tight, uncomfortable muscles in the back, which can pull on one another until they cause great pain in your head and neck. To treat your tension headache, climb into your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and position the jets so they hit pressure points along your back and neck. Since tension headaches often begin with neck and back muscles, helping these muscles relax will ease a tension headache.
Managing Migraine Headaches
For those who wrestle with migraine headaches, finding relief fast is at the top of your list. According to the Mayo Clinic, both stress and changes in sleep habits can contribute to an onset of a migraine, both of which can be addressed by spending time in your hot tub. Although your doctor will determine the best course of action when treating your migraines, the therapeutic benefits of your hot tub not only help you relax and reduce stress, they also remedy sleeplessness, both of which can help curb a menacing migraine.
As long as your doctor gives you the green light, spending time in your hot tub may help relieve your headaches. Drink plenty of water while enjoying your hot tub, as well as limiting yourself to 20 minutes at a time.
