At the end of a long day, few things compete with a soak in a hot bath. We humans have enjoyed soaking for centuries, and now there are studies that prove the health benefits we always suspected. What is even better is that we now have bathtubs that make it easy and convenient for people with mobility and accessibility issues to enjoy these same benefits. A Walk in tub offers a great bathing experience that can provide all the health benefits of a traditional bathtub. Walk in Tubs enable you to bathe with ease and avoid the difficulty and stress of lowering down then getting up and out from the low position of a standard bathtub. Walk in bathtubs are designed to fit in the existing space of your tub or shower. We offer many options including walk in tubs with shower surrounds and other upgrades. NW Tub & Shower is here to help you make a safe handicap accessible bathroom.
Here are some of the health benefits offered by Walk in tubs Portland:
Soothing muscles and joints:
Because you weigh 90% less when submerged in water, relaxing in the warm water relives the tension and pressure in your joints and muscles
Being submerged in the warm water improves circulation by opening the capillaries near the skin’s surface, increasing blood flow and oxygenation.
The circulation of the bubbles swirling around you in a walk in tub stimulates the release of endorphins, which is what your body uses to naturally combat stress.
A warm bath before bed has been shown to release body tension and relax your body, which makes a restful night of sleep much more likely. Also, the warm water raises your body temperature slightly, which has been shown to make sleep come faster to those who soak before bed.
