If you are one of the 10 million or so people in the UK who suffer from some kind of sleep disorder, do not despair as help may be at hand in the form of one of the very latest luxury hot tubs to hit UK shores.

Hot tubs have always offered some relief from chronic pain and sleeplessness since the 1950’s when the first models were launched in North America, but the latest models have uleashed the full benefits of hydrotherapeutic massage that is so effective in relieving the symptoms of insomnia.

Regular bathing for at least 20 minutes in one of the latest luxury hot tubs is now proven to be effective in inducing sleep. A report in the scientific journal Sleep showed that soaking in a hot tub before bedtime not only improves the ability to fall off to sleep but also to sleep deeper and therefore more restfully.

Since tiredness can cause tension, a shorter temper and depression, the latest hot tubs are welcome relief for those affected. If you suffer from poor sleep and want to try out the effects of bathing in hot tubs, why not throw your bathing costume in the car and wet test a spa at one of the many hot tub retailers in your area?

Hot TubsDespite a media-hyped slowdown in high street sales in recent months, a ray of hope shines on UK families in the form of surprisingly bouyant (excuse the pun) luxury hot tubs retail figures in the last 4-6 weeks.

With Sterling at record lows versus the Euro and the Dollar, disgruntled holidaymakers are deserting overseas beaches in droves, favouring the all-year-round benefits of relaxation and quality time that one of the latest energy-efficient luxury hot tubs can bring. A typical family hot tub is now more affordable than an overseas family holiday, with the added benefit of a 20 year+ lifespan for one of the quality brands of hot tubs.

With running costs starting at just 30p per day, the latest technological advances mean that modern hot tubs don’t have to break the bank either at point of sale or in everyday use. To put things into perspective, just one less trip to your local shops per day in a typical family car can more than pay for your hot tub to be warm, inviting and bubbling away at any time in readiness for your next dip.

With the stresses and strains of modern day life, there is no wonder that hot tub sales continue to buck the retail trend. For more details of your nearest hot tub retailers visit our Find a Retailer and find all of the hot tubs in your local area.

Holiday cottage rental agencies are reporting that availability of hot tubs is now officially top of the list from holidaymakers. A survey of 5 rental agencies across England, Wales and Scotland has revealed that hot tubs are now top of their lists. “Log cabins are a close second but I think people on holiday like the thought of having a little extra luxury when they rent somewhere and the hot tub seems to be top of their wish lists” said a spokesman for the research.”

At this time of financial downturn, coupled with very poor tourist exchange rates against the Dollar and Euro, more and more people are forsaking foreign climes and turning to home for this kind of property for short breaks and holidays; so if you own, manage, or let such a property and you are not offering a hot tub facility, contact your local WhatSpa Approved supplier now and have a chat with them about ensuring your competitors are not stealing a march on you.
