Treating Insomnia with a Swim Spa

Insomnia, is known as the absence of sleep, or lack of getting good sleep, otherwise called … regular Insomnia. After 30 minutes of you swimming, your work out has relieved the tension, got body fluids moving, bringing more oxygen through your blood … and making you extremely unwinded for a great night sleep.

The lack of excellent sleep, can cause mood swings, daytime sleepiness, bad concentration, amnesia, irritability, as well as bad moods and stress and anxiety.

I believe there is a better one. Bathing in your Swim Spa for up-to 90 minutes can activate your inner thermostat to lower your body temperature which actually assists to cause a good relaxing sleep. The hydrotherapy reduces any muscle stress and joint pain and at the exact same time the soothing experiences of weightlessness and buoyancy and the massage of the warm water bubbles can actually cause a nice state of mind where stress and anxiety, stress and tension are eliminated.

Combine the physical impacts of hydrotherapy with the mental relaxation and what you have readies sleep and a much better chance of being refreshed and revitalized the next day.

Okay, as you would expect, we have to mention that if you intend to get the healthy benefits from using your swim spa, you have to be able to use it easily everyday. That requires that it be easy to get into. After being in the Spa Cover business for thirty plus years, the folks at have learned a few things about human nature when it comes to using a swim spa.

When we first get our swim spas, we are excited and it is easy to find the time to use it everyday. Like a kid with a new toy. But eventually, that “newness” wears off. Then you have to decide that the benefits you get from using the swim spa are worth the time it takes out of your schedule.

Here’s a huge secret! The thing that causes most swim spa owners to eventually stop using their spa is the cover. The standard foam filled Swimspa cover available at every spa dealer across the country. The lid that gets thrown in as an after thought when you buy the swim spa. Crazy right?

The foam starts to saturate with moisture from the steam rising off the spa water. It doesn’t happen fast, in fact it happens slowly over time so that you don’t even notice it. After a few months, the Swimspa cover is heavier but because you have been using the spa everyday you didn’t notice the gradual change.

Before you know it, getting the Swimspa cover off and on takes a lot more effort. You might not even consciously notice it but one day you think about getting into the swim spa and you decide to skip it. You’re just not up to it tonight.

Why would you “skip” the thing that makes you sleep better and live healthier? Because it requires too much effort. That simple foam filled cover becomes a barrier between you and the swim spa you spent all that money on. The same swim spa you couldn’t wait to get into, is just too much work now because of a heavy Swimspa cover

Eventually, you use it less and less until you can’t remember the last time you used it.

Then you have to make a choice. Do you get a new cover and get back to using it or do you get rid of it and reclaim that part of your back yard.

I hope you decide to get a new cover. That hot tub is like a daily vacation that your body and mind need to “re-boot” and stay healthy. But before going out and buying another cover just like the one you’re replacing, consider something better.

At, they have been building Swim Spa Covers, that are light weight, easy to use and built to stay that way. There are no rigid foam panels in the SpaCap so there’s nothing to soak up that steam and get heavy.

I’m not going to go over all the details here but you should check them out for yourself on the website. Then do yourself a huge favor and order one for your swim spa.
