The Benefits of Hot Tubs in Our Mental Health

We are already aware of the physical health benefits we can get from soaking in hot tubs. But we don’t talk much about the benefits it can bring to our mental health. The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of so many people. Now is the time that we should be taking care of our health more than ever. Let’s see how hot tubs can help to manage our mental health and wellbeing. This might inspire you to make use of your hot tub that has been sleeping in your garden for ages now.

Mental Repose

hot tubs for mental health

Too much workload and other factors can make us feel very stressed and anxious. The powerful massage jets from your hot tub can help relieve the stress and tension in your muscles.

The research conducted by the Washington State University found out that immersing in hot water for 15-20 will put your body in a deep relaxation state. The cooling period that our body experiences after getting out of the hot water also gives us a better night’s sleep, which results in a better state of mind.

Rebalances Hormones

As we spend time relaxing in our hot tubs, our blood flow increases, and breathing relaxes. This increases the level of serotonin and dopamine (happy hormones) in our brains. At the same time, the level of epinephrine and cortisol (stress hormones) decreases. This rebalancing in our hormones is a fantastic aid against stress, anxiety, and depression.

Weight Reduction

According to the research made by physiologist Steve Faulkner, an hour spent in hot water can burn up to 140 calories, which is equal to a half-hour walk. If you do some post-walk hot tub sessions, your muscle relaxes, and your blood flow improves. If you are looking to burn some calories while relieving stress at the same time, you should consider soaking in the hot tub.

Developing a good relationship

Many families and groups of friends spend time together while soaking in hot tubs to develop and maintain good relationships. Socializing and developing good relationships is excellent for mental health. Why not invite some of your friends or family members to come and have some good, substantial conversation over some drinks.

What Our Customers Say

We had our Fiji spa installed today and can’t fault the guys from EJ Payne at all. When ever we’ve had questions they’ve got back to us straight away. Jake and the guys who came to install today were excellent, we had a problem with the access to the rear of our property but they soon solved the issue without any fuss or stress to us. We were recommended to EJ Payne by family who have also purchased a spa, as they too had a great experience from purchase to delivery and beyond. If your going to buy a spa then don’t hesitate to use EJ Payne. You can purchase our spa from lots of companies but I’m sure not many could match their dedication to customer service. We 100% recommend Thanks again Sarah & Phil
Sarah Roberts
Called in for some chlorine and a new filter, while we were there we talked about a possible up grade , the guys knowledge is second to none Ricky was so helpful and the quality of the hot tubs is amazing, we will definitely be calling back very soon , can’t wait
Paula Parkinson
Used E.J.Payne in the summer for a starter chemical kit as everywhere was out of stock, definitely should have tried here straight away and will do in the future, great customer service and quick service box and ready for me to pick up straight away.
Jake Humphreys
After not using my hot tub since September I decided to shut it down for the winter. When making my initial enquiry Ricky was really helpful with advice, (I had lost power supply to the tub) they were able to come out to me within a few days as I was concerned about pipes freezing. Alex came out to complete the shut down. Again he was really helpful, great customer service, I have used hot tub companies before but would highly recommend this company and will definitely will using them again. Thank you guys 😁
Lisa Rochester
Fantastic service. Came and fitted our fiji hot tub in the summer. Had it all running in a few hours. Jake was knowledgable and gave me a tutorial on how to operate it and maintain it. Best thing I have ever bought. Nothing beats sitting in a hot tub at night watching the stars. It’s an investment for your well-being and you deserve it. Buy one.
Gavin Edensor
Ricky and the team have been absolutely great from the day we made our first contact to enquire about buying a tub in April 2020. The level of service and aftersales care is second to non and I would (and already have) recommend them to anyone looking for genuine advice about hot tubs and pools. Keep up the good work guys.

Can’t fault the service from start to finish. From coming to do a site inspection to helping us choose the right tub for us, everyone was really friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Laura Elizabeth Phillips
The first time I contacted E.J. Payne in early Aug 2020 I spoke to Jake who was very helpful and I arranged to go to the shop to view a hot tub. Jake explained everything to me. Purchase included site check, delivery, installation and a chemical starter kit. Alex and Dan delivered and installed our hot tub, we needed a crane, which they arranged. It all went very smoothly without any issues.I also had a handrail installed by Rick. At a later date Dan came and checked the tub for us as there was something I wasn't sure of. The whole experience from first contact has been excellent, I can highly recommend E.J Payne Leisure.
Elaine Wilkinson

Moira Mayer
We took delivery of our HTS Neptune this week and the service we received from start to finish was exceptional. We wanted to buy a hot tub locally and after speaking to Jake in the shop who helped us chose the right spa for us and our budget we were kept informed of the progress with our order. On delivery day the installation team rang us a couple of times to let me know when they would arrive and were very professional and friendly. Can't recommend E.J. Payne highly enough. The hot tub is amazing. Thanks
Paul Dyer
What a fabulous company to deal with ! From the minute we made contact to install day today, we cannot fault you all. Ricky, jake, Dan & Alex - awesome 👏 guys - huge thanks - so pleased x
Zoe Brannan
We’ve had our hot tub installed today and we can’t fault the lads at E.J. Payne. Always very responsive to messages and willing to answer any queries along the way. The installation was smooth and the lads were fab- they know their stuff! They were very professional and very friendly. We’ve been told numerous times that they are only a phone call away if we need any help along the way with the new tub, which has given us peace of mind. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of getting a hot tub.
Amy Ann
Highly recommended from start to finish, communication was great throughout, from having it craned over the house to installation went really smooth and the demonstration was very clear . They have always been happy to help with any questions Thanks Ricky and Jake , it’s a 10 for me 👍.
Kev Ferguson
Absolutely excellent service throughout. Highly recommend them. Quick and efficient installation with no problems during any part of the process. Definitely the place to go if you need a hot tub or pool. Thank you so much for our tub, we’ve certainly had our moneys worth already, only problem is we can’t get out once we’re in 😍

Fantastic service throughout! From my initial conversation with Jake to aftercare nothing has been too much trouble.

Service was great from start to delivery.We chose EJ Payne as we knew they had been around for years they did not disappoint.Thank you so much we love our tub
Claire-Adele Johnson
Our hot tub was delivered 27th May (sorry for the delay of my review).Ricky was a pleasure to deal with, confident in his products and his knowledge is excellent.We originally went looking at the HTS Mars as I was convinced I wanted two loungers, however I’m looking at other tubs and with Ricky’s knowledge after telling him our dreams, wants needs we ended up with an Artic Spa Cub.We are over the moon with our purchase, and it looks stunning. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to E J Payne for a hot tub. Excellent customer service, had a few questions over the last couple of weeks and Ricky has been more than happy to assist where he could, even to the point of sorting me out a new filter as I wanted to change the disposable one for a pleated so I could use foam away chemical.Thanks Ricky & team for an experience that will stay with us for a while. I attach some pics of tub through the weeks.
Libby Chapman
E.J. Payne and staff were brilliant from walking into the shop, getting advice, to being kept in the loop during the epidemic down to the pretty impressive arrival of the 'BEAST!' Jake and Dan worked tirelessly to get our tub installed even though the weather was against them!professional from start to finish, well done guys and thankyou.
Sara-Paul Barlow

Jase Reynolds
So pleased with our new hot tub from E J Payne. Nothing was too much trouble and Jake was friendly, professional and so knowledgeable in helping us choose the right hot tub. He also helped with the selling of our old hot tub and was always in contact. Also, a special mention to Mark who helped to fit the hot tub with Jake. He made sure that everything was working and correct before he left and would not leave until we were satisfied. Would highly recommend E J Payne. Thank you!
Amanda Porritt
Great company to deal with, Ricky explains everything you need to know without any pressure to buy.Had our HTC Mercury installed by Mark and Jake with great service, and took as long as you like to explain chemicles etc.

Katrina Lawton
From the minute we walked in to the showroom we were made to feel so welcome , no pushy salesman just friendly and helpful. Our hot tub was ordered on the Saturday and now nearly a week later our children are sitting in it having the best of fun . Our experience with E.J Payne especially Jake has been so pleasant they are nothing but friendly and so helpful. Would highly recommend. Thankyou so much 😊
Kate Johnson
We bought our hot tub in April from EJ Payne and I must say we did shop around as north as Blackpool and as south as Birmingham looking at hot tubs as a big financial commitment. However the first place we went was EJ Payne and met Jake who came across as honest, knowledgable and they say people buy from people and this is true in this case. So after several weeks of looking around we felt pulled to Jake and going back. Very professional and friendly and jake has looked after us from start to finish always picking up the phone even at the house during installation. Credit to the company. Highly recommend and although my sister already has a hot tub will be using you guys for services from now on based on our experience. Also would like to add the it was Jake that recommended a wet test and although a little shy with my husband in the shop highly worth while as no surprise bought the one we wet tested.
Adrienne Jayne Hewitt
Had my Olympus spa installed this week and I love it! Friendly easy guys to deal with, they helped me choose exactly what I wanted based upon my requirements. Easy no hassle sale 😃 Thanks to Jake and Mark too for showing me exactly what to do with chemicals!

Brill service. Delivered on time, no hassle and loads of advice and support offered. Absolutely love our new hot tub.
Helen Louise Eyre
I well and truly researched hot tub companies as there seems to be a lot of cowboys around. This isn’t the case with Hot Tubs Staffordshire, they are the utmost professionals paying 100% attention to customer satisfaction. From home visits to out of hours queries they are absolutely faultless. Old fashioned customer service with a bang up to date company. Highly recommended 👍
Kris Simpson
Excellent customer service from the team, always willing to give advice.
Steven Fergusson
Very happy customer. Hot tub delivered and installed exactly as arranged. Top after sales too...any questions answered via txt within the hour.
Ross Colledge
Wow. Hot tub just been installed by two great guys. From the moment I walked into the showroom and started talking to Jake I knew this was the place I was going to purchase my hot tub from. Nothing was too much trouble. All the advice you could ask for, excellent prices, excellent delivery and fitting All round 11 out of 10. Do not commit to buying a tub until you have visited their showroom. It WILL BE the best decision you will have ever made. Thanks guys, just waiting for it to warm up then a test drive
Paul Lomas

Leigh Rushton
Purchased a hot tub and took me a while to understand the chemicals. Service has been exceptional from Richard. Above and beyond- could not do enough to help. Thank u
Louise Davies
We wanted a quality hot tub supplied a quality supplier. We looked at a few suppliers but when we met with Ricky we were really impressed with the apparent straightforward approach. Now I'm a sceptic and feel that talk can be cheap but I can honestly say that the ordering, the organisation of delivery and installation, the installation and after sales service have been exceptional. I cannot recommend highly enough this family company and would urge anyone wishing to buy a hot tub to at the very least take the trouble to visit EJPayne as it's a major investment and you want both a quality product and installer.
Paul Selman
Top service and top spa thanks alot for all you have done brill�
Craig Bennett
I would highly recommend this company from when we first visited them we knew instantly that we'd found not only the right tub but the right company too. We'd been to a few others but we felt that everything was so genuine and friendly about this company. Richard was outstanding his support and advice was excellent he was not pushy at all and was so helpful. I can quite honestly say that I know if we have any questions Richard will only be a phone call away. We would just like to say thank you so much for your support on everything.

We had been considering a hot tub spa for quite a while and visited other local suppliers before we visited E.j Payne and dealt with Richard who was very informative,passionate and obliging nothing was too much trouble for him.After this visit we instantly had the confidence to place an order for a Arctic Spa Yukon which was delivered and installed in the most professional way being overseen by Richard every step of the way giving us novices total peace of mind and he followed up the installation with a further visit after a few days.We have now had it for nearly two weeks and can not express in words how pleased we are in every way and there has not been a night that we have not been in it.I would personally recommend Richard and his team for anyone considering a purchase as they are a very genuine one stop shop of fantastic people.Thank you from the Frearson family
Adrian Frearson
Outstanding service, fantastic customer experience right from looking and deciding whether to purchase straight through to delivery and installation. Can't fault this family business , just brilliant !!
