Also, by immersing yourself in a bathtub of water you can take the weight off your joints and muscles and which can be helpful for arthritis, back pain, headaches, sports injuries, and many more ailments.
Showers are invigorating and perhaps more cleansing and generally use less water if you have a low-flow shower head and don’t spend much time showering. Beside water use, showers are quick to take, they’re effective since you can wash and rinse at the same time, feel good with the water flowing over or massaging your body, and can be incorporated into your hydrotherapy treatments since you can change from hot to cold water almost instantaneously.
Regardless of which you choose, make the most of out of your bathtub and shower by pampering yourself while bathing. Make sure you get the maximum relaxation and benefits from both by using warm water, shower/bath gels and soaps, and aromatherapy bath salts to indulge your senses.
