A Deeper Sleep

Relaxing in a Riptide Spa can promote a good night’s sleep.

If you have problems sleeping, then a spa or hot tub could help you achieve a good nights sleep.

Almost a quarter of all adults in the UK will have some sort of sleep disorder during their lives. It can vary from a few nights of restlessness to years and years of poor sleep, interrupted sleep or real difficulty in getting off to sleep.

When lack of sleep becomes a chronic problem, it can start to affect you in many ways. Studies show that:

  • Sleep helps the brain commit new information to memory.
  • Feeling nervous, groggy and depressed or cause erratic mood swings.
  • Lack of sleep can make you irritable, and make it hard to concentrate.
  • Serious sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension.
  • Eventually, chronic sleep loss can diminish the disease-fighting capabilities of the immune system.

Relaxing in the warm water of a Riptide Spa before going to bed can help you fall into a deeper and more restful sleep.

The hydrotherapy provided by Riptide is particularly good at this as not only does the warm water soothe your body but also the massage jets will ease away aches and pains that might otherwise disturb your nights rest.

The warm spa water acts to slow down your metabolism and the production of stress hormones in your body. The increase in blood flow brings more oxygen to your muscles and your extremities and mimics the reaction your body has when you are exercising. This triggers your body to produce endorphins, which also ease pain and soothe you towards a calmer state ready for sleep.

Each of these feel-good factors will help to ensure that you’re preparing your body for a healthy, sound rest.

The jets provide many massage variations that can help you release feelings of stress. The adjustable,directional Quad jets, pinpoint the neck muscles, where many people experience tension. The power of each jet can be adjusted by turning the bar top controls. Making your Riptide spa personalised just for you.

According to a study in the scientific journal Sleep, a drop in body temperature can also aid in easing the body into a relaxing and sound sleep. By taking a 15-minute soak in a hot tub about 90 minutes before attempting to sleep, your body temperature can drop to enable a better nights sleep naturally without the grogginess sometimes caused by prescription remedies.
