Some days when you come back home from a long day, you might just want to hop into a bathtub and have a nice, relaxing warm soak to take all the stress away. Our muscles can carry a lot of tension throughout the day and taking a bath is a great way to release those tensions. Hydrotherapy, which is the use of water as treatment, has been practiced for centuries, and soaking in a bath is one method of hydrotherapy. In fact, it has been scientifically proven that taking baths can come with many health benefits.

  1. Taking a warm bath can improve heart health. This is because your heart beats faster when the temperature is higher, so the warm water will give your heart a good workout. However, you do not want to soak yourself in water that is too hot, as high temperatures can put a strain on your heart and cause dehydration (which is also why you see warning signs in saunas and hot tubs that remind people not to stay in them for too long).
  2. Submerging in a bath reduces inflammation and calms the nerves. If you suffer from anxiety, a warm bath can help relieve stress levels. People who suffer from chronic pain can benefit greatly from a bath as well because the temperature and pressure of the water help relieve the pain and discomfort in the nervous system. Warm water also increases levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter produced by the brain that helps regulate anxiety, happiness, and mood. The better regulated your mood is, the calmer and happier you’ll be!
  3. Bathing benefits your bones, muscles, and joints. Just as mentioned above how the warm water works to relieve chronic pain, the same principle can be applied for your bones, muscles, and joints. Your body is more relaxed when submerged in warm water. Once your body is more relaxed, you can actually do some stretching and exercises in the water. Water provides resistance, so you can move your legs in cycling motions and that will provide your muscles with a good low impact workout! Aquatic exercises are the most gentle on the joints, which is great for the elderly or people with weaker joints.
  4. Baths enhance lung function and clear sinuses. Your lung capacity can be improved when taking baths because there is pressure placed on your chest when you’re immersed in a large body of water. In addition, when the water is warm your heart beats faster, so your oxygen intake will be higher. Thus, your lung capacity will expand and improve. The warm water produces steam and also gets your blood moving, which improves circulation, so this can help clear your sinuses.
