'Hot Water & Healthy Living' reviews scientific findings about warm-water

immersion

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- For those who have wondered how warm water makes them feel so good, a new book may help them discover the answer. Published by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF), "Hot Water & Healthy Living" provides a thorough review of how the pressure and warmth of warm-water immersion causes the heart to pump more blood, the chest to work harder to breathe, and the mind and body to relax. Authored by Jonathan B. "J.B." Smith, Ed.D., Indiana University of Indiana, the book includes more than 25 sources of scholarly scientific research presented in a manner understandable by both experts and laypersons.

Smith writes, "Our bodies make adjustments when we are immersed in water. These changes are similar to those that occur when we exercise. The changes include increased circulation, more efficient breathing, and improvements in mood." Soaking in warm water, like a hot tub, helps to heal our injuries, improves joint flexibility, sleep and a general sense of well-being. Doctors and therapists have long-recommended soaking in hot water to ease a variety of ailments including arthritis, back pain, insomnia and fibromyalgia. "Hot Water & Healthy Living" explains how hot water immersion provides a safe, relaxing way to unwind, reduce anxiety, and cope more effectively with the challenges of daily life.

"In addition, this new book helps clarify how warm water immersion can help at-risk groups who may have limited exercise options," explains Thomas Lachocki, Ph.D. and CEO with NSPF. "Soaking in a hot tub may be the easiest and safest way for sedentary people to get their daily dose of heart and respiratory exercise," concludes Lachocki.
