Hot Tub Health Benefits: Migraine Relief
Anyone who has ever suffered a migraine knows that they are far more than “just a headache”. Symptoms such as feeling dizzy or faint, Increased sensitivity to light & sound, nausea, pain on one side of your head, pulsing and/or throbbing pain and vomiting mean that migraines can have a considerable impact on the quality of life of sufferers and their loved ones.
According to the Journal of Headache and Pain, migraine is the third most common medical problem in the world, affecting almost 1-in-7 people. The World Health Organization reports that migraines affect three times as many women as men.
The hydrotherapy provided by a Sundance hot tub is a very effective natural migraine headache treatment, helping to both relieve symptoms & prevent migraine onset.
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic suggest that both stress and a change in our sleeping habits can contribute to the emergence of a migraine. Sundance Spas are designed to help you with both of these areas, and contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Click here for more information on how Sundance hot tubs can help you sleep better at night.
Tension headaches are often a trigger for migraines. Stress causes muscle tension, and unrelieved muscle tension can cause neck, shoulder & facial pain which can result in a painful migraine forming.
Learning to relax is essential for relieving the pain of migraines. A Sundance hot tubs warm water can help promote a state of rest and relaxation which promotes healing and wellness.
Sundance Spas patented Hydrotherapy Jets are the perfect way to provide relief to tense, sore muscles. Focused streams of water – with air added to the water flow if you so desire, provide a scintillating therapeutic massage that you can control to ensure your massage is as gentle or intense as you want it to be.
Our customizable therapy jets give you the same feeling of relaxation as getting a traditional massage, but you never need to make an appointment as your Sundance hot tub is available for you 24-7.
Our 880 & 980 Series hot tubs feature an Accu-Ssage Therapy seat that provides a shiatsu style massage that targets specific acupressure points. This cluster of Fluidix ST jets enables you to increase or decrease pressure levels for your upper and lower backs separately.
The adjustability of the jets allow you to focus the massage on the muscles you want to be worked on whilst sitting comfortably in the ergonomically designed chair. These durable jets, built without bearings or other moving parts that can decrease effectiveness and wear out over time, simulate the sensation of a hands-on massage by moving the water from side ti side – it really does feel like someone's fingers massaging your back!
Neck pain has been noted as a symptom by many migraine sufferers. A 2010 study found that neck pain was a symptom of migraine that occurred more often than nausea for many people.
For the alleviation of neck stiffness and pain, Sundance hot tubs have a variety of neck jets available.
The Accu-Ssage seat mentioned above contains two fully adjustable Fluidix Nex Jets, to relieve neck tension and strain in small muscles and sensitive nerves.
Fluidix Nex Jets pulse from side to side, rather than just shooting a straight stream of water at your neck, which is quite a sensitive area. This allows you to enjoy the neck massage for a longer period of time and therefore enhances your Hydrotherapy experience.
Sinus headaches are known to be another trigger for migraines and are something else that can be helped by soaking in your Sundance Spa!
Congestion in the nasal cavities causes sinus pressure, which in turn causes pain in the temples, nose, forehead, cheeks and ears. Soaking in the warm waters of a Sundance hot tub can help ease nasal congestion and possibly halt the onset of a migraine.
While you are soaking in your Sundance Spa, you can add the fragrance of Eucalyptus to your water, either through the built-in Aromatherapy System on all 880 & 980 Series hot tubs, or directly to your Sundance hot tubs water with Spazazz Fragrance Crystals. Eucalyptus is renowned for it’s ability to soothe chest pain, suppress coughing and clear congested sinuses.
