Can Hot Tubs Improve the Old Gray Matter?

Noodle. Noggin. The Old Gray Matter. No matter what you call it, the human brain is an amazing organ!

Your brain is responsible for all thought, speech, movement, organ function, sleep, hunger, thirst, your blood pumping, your emotions, and so much more. That’s a TON for one body part to be in charge of! Controlling almost every vital activity of the body, the healthful care for this body member should be at the top of your list of priorities. So how do you learn to treat your incredible brain well?

Besides exercise, excellent nutrition, and good sleep, there’s another asset that is proving to have beneficial improvement to your brain’s function: hot tub hydrotherapy.

The healing powers of warm water therapy are well established in other cultures, and the people who utilize them have had impressive results. Sometimes modern medicine can tend to move away from ancient wisdom. We are so glad this has not been the case with hydrotherapy, especially with new studies coming out that show all the amazing health benefits to the human body.

With warm water therapy, including submersion up to the shoulders or neck, comes the increase in body temperature and blood flow. That increased circulation, in turn, creates more oxygen delivery to the prefrontal cortex and other areas of the brain. The study showed these amazing results:

  • Improvement in cognitive function
  • Decrease in Fibromyalgia pain
  • Development of higher pain tolerance
  • More oxygen-rich blood being sent to the prefrontal cortex
  • Quicker brain and body reactions
  • Increased and sustained mental ability
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Reduction in other pain symptoms
  • Improved speech function
  • Elevation of mood for several hours
  • Decreased stress, agitation and anxiety
  • Less mental health- and pain- management through prescriptions
