The Healing Benefits of Heat

It’s time to warm up! Fall is here and it’s getting cold! While we are in the midst of a bustling fall season with holiday events approaching, home decorating in full swing, recipe planning, busy fall sports, work deadlines, school projects, home repairs, and many other events and tasks, we still need to remember to take care of ourselves. Take a few minutes every day to enjoy a brisk walk in your neighborhood, enjoy a hot spiced cider, curl up with a good book and your favorite blanket, try grilling a new recipe in your outdoor kitchen, swim your daily laps, or give your body the attention it deserves with a warm soak in the spa! Here at California Pools, we understand that self-care is a crucial element to living a happy and healthy lifestyle. There are numerous healing benefits of a heated therapeutic spa that we would like to share. With cooler temperatures across the nation, it’s the perfect time to discuss the benefits of warming up in your California Pools spa!
