With cold winter weather often comes a cold – an increased chance of getting a stuffy nose, chest congestion, aches and pains. One Facebook post can produce an unrelenting number of home-remedy responses from Facebook friends and family from lemon-honey tea to essential oils and lots of rest. But one recommendation you’re not likely to see is to spend 20 minutes soaking in a Marquis hot tub each evening. This is not because it doesn’t work; quite the contrary, it’s an effective method in your remedy arsenal. It’s just that many people aren’t aware of it as an option.
One of the best practices when battling the common cold is to get ample rest. But sometimes that’s counter intuitive because your cold makes it hard to sleep. A 20 minute soak in your Maquis spa right before bed, however, can help you fall asleep faster. Our body temperature drops when we sleep. By soaking in your Marquis hot tub Fayetteville NC, you increase your body temperature so that it drops more dramatically when you exit, preparing your body for sleep before even hitting the pillow.
When you open your Marquis spa cover, how is it that you know it’s warm? The steam! And that’s going to be your greatest ally in working loose all that congestion that helping you feel miserable. By submerging your body up to your neck, the steam has direct access to your nasal passages. So it might be a good idea to keep a box of tissues close by.
The common cold typically comes with some aches in the body. The warm water and soothing jets of your hot tub will help to work that out. Also, the buoyancy of the water will help relieve some of the tension on your joints.
While there’s no known cure for the common cold, taking care of your body so it can heal is the best medicine. Your hot tub can be a vital part of your back-to-health regimen. And if you don’t yet have a hot tub, our showroom has Marquis spas in Fuquay-Varina NC (near Raleigh). Oh, and remember to stay hydrated too!
