9 Scientifically Proven Benefits of Bathing

1- Bathing can improve heart health. - Taking a warm bath will make your heart beat faster and can give it a healthy workout.  Taking a regular warm bath can also help reduce blood pressure.

2- Taking a bath may help you to breathe easier. - Being immersed in water past your chest, with your head out, can have a good influence on your lung capacity and oxygen intake.

3- A bath can benefit your brain and nervous system. - Submergence in water can reduce pain & inflammation and also calm the nervous system, reducing the levels of stress and anxiety in the body and improving your mood.

4- Improved blood flow and immunity. - Not only does a warm bath help the blood flow more easily, it also makes it more oxygenated by allowing you to breathe deeper and slower.  Taking a hot can kill bacteria, improve immunity, and help to relieve symptoms of cold and flu.

5- A bath can elevate mood. - Bathing can diminish feelings of depression and pessimism. It can also give you a wonderful combination of isolation, quiet, and comfort.  Overall, bathing induces feelings of comfort and easiness, and that kind of security allows your mind, and subsequently your body, to relax.

6- Bathing can benefit your muscles, joints & bones. - The increased blood flow provides your muscles more oxygen and nutrients.  This improves the elasticity of the connective tissues, releases muscle tightness, and relieves pain.  Submergence in water is great for joints because it reduces the force of gravity that's compressing the joint & offers 360 degree support for sore limbs (like an Ace bandage).

7- A bath can help you sleep better. - At night our body temperatures naturally drop, which signals the production of melatonin, the sleeping hormone.  Soaking in a warm bath will raise your body temperature, and exiting the bath will more rapidly cool you down, thus signaling the production of melatonin, and better preparing you for a good night's sleep.

8- Bathing burns calories. - A good sweat induced by a warm bath can burn as many calories as taking a walk.

9- Baths can soothe irritated skin. - A warm bath, in combination with certain essential oils & ingredients included in your Bath Soak Kit, can better hydrate and heal dry or irritated skin.
