Revitalise the Soul: 6 Benefits of Hot Tub Glamping

Nothing quite beats the experience of relaxing the mind and body in a luxury hot tub, tucked away in the great British countryside. We’ve put together some of the best reasons to hit the hot tub to celebrate Mother’s Day this year on Sunday 19th March.

1) Reawaken Your Soul

Luxury hot tub glamping is the perfect way to relax your mind and forget all about the stresses and pressures of the modern world. The combination of hot water and jet streams can do wonders for your wellbeing. Just 30 minutes in a hot tub can be enough to reduce anxiety, banish tension headaches, and even reduce your blood pressure. Playing soft music during your soak is a great way to boost the stress-relieving effect, too.

2) Soothe Your Body

The Malvern Hills is the ultimate location for long, countryside walks amongst breath-taking scenery, which is scientifically proven to help clear the mind. Stroll under leafy canopies, climb Midsummer Hill, explore an Iron Age hill fort, take in spectacular views of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire countryside, and enjoy a country pub lunch. And that’s all in just one walk!

Naturally, after all that walking, you’re going to be a bit stiff and achy. A luxury hot tub is ideal for reducing blood circulation, helping your muscles relax and easing any joint inflammation. The water supports your body and takes the weight off your joints, which can help to improve your flexibility and range of motion. Simply sit back and let the warm water work its magic on your body.

3) Improve Your Sleep

Whilst Swallowfields is all about getting back to basics and experiencing the great outdoors, it’s also the perfect place to catch up on some sleep. According to research, the simple relaxation gained from a soak in a luxury hot tub is enough to help you drift off into a peaceful sleep.

Other studies have shown that passive body heating can help treat insomnia in older adults. Research found that hot tubs promoted significantly deeper and more restful sleep.

4) Connect With Nature

Being surrounded by the beauty of nature is what we’re all about at Swallowfields. Taking in the fresh air and gorgeous scenery heightens your sense of calmness and peace. The ancient woodland atmosphere all around us here is ideal for connecting with nature, whilst you take a deeply relaxing soak in your very own hot tub.

5) Boost Your Health

Taking a dip in a hot tub is a fun and relaxing experience, but research has shown that it can also help boost your health. Unwinding in a hot tub for just 10 minutes can raise your heart rate and lower your blood pressure, improving your vascular function. This means that people who regularly use a hot tub are less likely to develop cardiovascular disease.

It can also be a great way to burn calories and aid metabolism, which could be particularly beneficial for those who find it hard to exercise. Studies have shown that soaking in a hot tub for 30 minutes can burn the same amount of calories as a 30 minute walk!

6) Have Fun!

Soaking in a luxury hot tub with your friends or family is a truly joyful experience, provoking conversation, laughter, and a fantastic feeling of happiness. Above all, make sure you have lots of fun and enjoy the experience!
