Hot tub health benefits vocabulary class

Many Americans are installing saunas and hot tubs or adding steam showers to their bathrooms. This class is designed to help you speak about the health benefits of hot water. Read this advertisement for a hot tub and answer the vocabulary questions that follow.

Our new hot tub provides the ideal atmosphere for relaxation and rejuvenation. When you're ready to upgrade your master bath, this is just the tub for you! This Wasauna hot tub has ample room for you and your partner to bathe together.

While the body massage jets help relieve tension, soaking in hot water is also beneficial. Blood near the body's surface is warmed by the hot tub's hot water. This warmed blood then circulates through your body. As the warm blood reaches deeper and deeper into the muscles, blood vessels expand. This is why soaking in a hot tub causes muscles to relax. The hot water also helps muscles eliminate lactic acid and other metabolic wastes.

Please note that you can get too much of a good thing. Soaking in a spa raises your core temperature without discomfort. This is only healthy for a brief period, approximately 15 minutes. If you have a medical condition, speak with your doctor before soaking in a hot tub.
