A good night’s sleep has a wide range of benefits for you physically, mentally and emotionally. Getting plenty of rest has been linked to everything from your ability to concentrate and learn to how well your body metabolizes food and even regulates hormones. Studies have shown that people who get adequate sleep are more likely to be happier, healthier and less prone to depression than those who don’t. A hot tub can help you get better rest by relaxing muscles and lowering stress levels.
A hot tub can also relieve the pain and discomfort of skeletal conditions like arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, etc. The gentle, therapeutic massage of the jets and the warmth of the water will reduce both mental and physical stress and anxiety while easing soreness. A hot tub can also increase your blood circulation and deliver oxygen to the brain and muscles. This results in increased energy and the feeling of being revitalized.

Some are opulent, but others (like celebrity aesthetician Joanna Vargas’s highly-regarded spot in Tribeca) come in at just the right price point for a regular dose of pampering.
