Can a Hot Tub Help with Fibromyalgia?

Did you know that about 4 million people in the U.S. alone have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? That’s not even including those who are still waiting for an official diagnosis, which can be hard to get because there’s no specific test for it. So what can you do to manage your symptoms? How do you treat a disease you can’t see? With a spa of course! Can a hot tub help with fibromyalgia pain? Yes! Here’s how it works:

How a Hot Tub Can Help With Fibromyalgia

It may sound like an unconventional treatment, but studies have shown marked improvement for patients dealing with numerous neuromuscular and autoimmune conditions. When you use a spa, the heat reduces inflammation in your joints and muscles, plus it gives you a therapeutic massage from the high-quality jet system. 


A Jacuzzi® also makes an ideal spot for physical therapy. You can use the buoyancy to help move stiff muscles while completing your range-of-motion exercises. And, since exercise helps lessen the frequency of flare-ups, you now have the perfect excuse to slip away for a few minutes and enjoy some self-care in a luxurious hot tub. 

Reducing Flare-Ups

Something that actually helps manage fibromyalgia pain is amazing enough, but hot tubs go a step further by reducing your chances of flare-ups. Here are a few of the ways a Jacuzzi works its magic:

  • Helping you sleep better at night and warding off fatigue.
  • Allowing for more exercise.
  • Reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. 
  • Increasing circulation for a better functioning body system.
