Many view hot tubs as a summertime luxury. However, these relaxing retreats offer year-round benefits, especially during the winter months. Here's why:

Relieve Muscle Tension: Cold weather often leaves muscles tight and sore. With temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius, a dip in a Crystec Spa can provide soothing relief.

Embrace Winter Sun: Despite the chill, winter still offers occasional sunshine. Venturing outside for a hot tub session not only provides fresh air but also boosts Vitamin D levels.

Combat Colds: Winter brings cold and flu season, but hot tubs can help clear sinuses and relax chest and lungs. Raising body temperature may also assist in expelling cold germs.

Enhance Winter Workouts: Don't let the cold deter your exercise routine. A hot tub soak post-workout serves as a delightful reward. Plus, many exercises can be done in the warm water, maintaining your fitness regimen.

It’s important to make sure that you prepare for using your hot tub in cold weather.  When you position your hot tub initially, it may be worth considering how far away from your house you locate it.  Do you really want to be walking to the other end of your garden once the temperature drops?  Included with all Crystec Spas is a fully insulated cover.  It’s paramount that you replace this when your hot tub is not in use as this will help to maintain the water temperature as well as keep out any debris.

The last thing you want to do is get cold when you exit the tub.  Make sure you have slippers and a towel or robe to hand so that you can wrap up as soon as you leave the water.  It’s also a good idea to take a warm drink with you too. 

With proper planning, hot tub enjoyment transcends seasons, ensuring year-round relaxation and wellness.
