Soaking in a hot tubs is one of the most relaxing ways to spend time. From soothing aching muscles and joints to melting away the day’s many stresses, soaking in a spa is enhanced by music. Adding surround sound to your spa offers multiple benefits, both immediate and long-term.

Surrounding Yourself with Sound

Listening to music is more than an auditory experience, as both body and mind are engaged when soothing sounds are presented. In a 2007 study, the relationship between listening to music and overall health was explored. According to researchers, music:

  • Decreases depression. Individuals diagnosed with depression report a reduction in feelings of sadness, increase in level of motivation, and an improved outlook on life.
  • Reduces pain. From chronic pain to postoperative discomfort, listening to music helps alleviate physical pain.
  • Enhances quality of life. For some, exposure to music can reduce anxiety, improve coordination, or promote healthy communication, all of which enhance quality of life.
  • Improves overall mood. Whether you’re feeling blue, irritated, or angry, listening to music can lift your spirits.

The many benefits of listening to music have led spa owners to create an immersive experience by adding surround sound to their spa area.

Hot Tubs & Tunes

When it comes to adding surround sound to your spa, many options are available. Among spa owners, these options are preferred:

  • Portable docking station. Perfect for spa owners who want variation, portable docking stations can be connected to outdoor speakers to create a relaxing oasis of surround sound. Between ease of use and accessibility, a docking station provides decades of music at your fingertips.
  • Complete sound and entertainment installation. A less portable (but more effective) listening experience is created when a complete surround sound and entertainment system is installed. Available in waterproof and weather resistant varieties, outdoor surround sound systems help create a relaxing ambiance.
