Spa Benefits for Diabetes

More Than Just Relaxing - A Hot Tub Can Be Good for You

Hot Tub Therapy Can Help DiabeticsHot Tub Therapy Can Help Diabetics

For the more than 16 million people who have diabetes, help may be as close as the nearest hot tub. A study by a Colorado researcher published in the New England Journal of Medicine brings the benefits of hot tub therapy to the surface and sheds new light on the advantages of spa ownership. According to the study, soaking in a hot tub can be beneficial for people who are affected with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

With this type of diabetes, people can often control their condition with regular exercise and a good diet. Unfortunately, many diabetics are physically unable to endure rigorous activity and maintain a steady weight. In a recent study conducted by Dr. Philip Hooper at the McKee Medical Center in Colorado, eight people with Type 2 Diabetes were placed in a hot tub for 30 minutes a day for three consecutive weeks. The results indicated that patients reported a 13% reduction in blood sugar levels, improved sleep and an increase in their overall sense of well being.

If you or someone you know is affected by diabetes, relaxing in a spa might bring needed relief. A Hot Spring spa is the ultimate way to relax, unwind and relieve tension through state-of-the-art massage. For more information on the results of this study, visit the New England Journal of Medicine Web site.
