When your body begins to ache and your nose gets uncomfortably stuffed up, you know you’re on the verge of coming down with a dreaded cold. As the symptoms sneak up on you, instead of running to your medicine cabinet, did you know that your Dream Maker Spa can help relieve symptoms and contribute to a faster recovery?

Remember when your fever would spike as a child and your parents would sit you in a steamy bathroom so you could “sweat it out”? Bypass your bathroom and force the fever out with the help of your hot tub! Fevers are your body’s natural defense mechanism when fighting off a virus; turning your hot tub up to 102 degrees will help induce your fever and sweat out the toxins. Make sure to stay hydrated while soaking in the high heat and limit yourself to twenty-minute sessions throughout the day.

You know the saying “misery loves company”? Along with a fever comes the dreaded body aches and congestion. Thankfully the contoured seats of your hot tub from Dream Maker Spas cradle your body as soothing jets target stress-holding muscle groups. During your massage, the natural buoyancy of water can relieve joint pressure while warm water relaxes the body even more.

As you’re letting the warm water and jets soothe your sore and achy muscles, combat your congestion with steam! The steam from your hot tub helps open your nasal passages, inducing drainage and reducing inflammation.
