Are you the proud owner of a hot tub?
Whether you’re a seasoned spa owner or you’re new to the lifestyle, chances are you want to make sure that you’re making the most of the experience.
That can include using the hot tub safely and effectively. One question that we hear far too often, is how long one should soak in the spa.
In this article, we’re going to answer that question and then show you a variety of ways to maximize your spa experience within that time frame.
How Long Can I Stay Inside a Hot Tub for?
You should aim to stay inside a hot tub for anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Depending on your tolerance and health status, you may be able to soak for upwards of 45 minutes to an hour.
If you’re starting to feel overheated, try taking a break from the water, enjoy a healthy snack and have a drink to rehydrate.
Once you have had some time to cool down, enter the hot tub once more and enjoy a second soak after a well-deserved break. If you wish to soak for longer than 15-30 minutes, try sitting on the ledge of the hot tub for about five minutes or so, every 15 minutes to give your body a break from the heat.

Making the Most of Your Spa Experience
While hot tubs can be very beneficial to your health, wellness and overall lifestyle, it’s essential that you use it safely. If you stay in a hot tub for too long, you may risk overheating, feeling nauseous or becoming lightheaded.
To ensure your best health, stay hydrated, eat a healthy snack and even speak with your doctor to ensure that it’s safe for you to soak in a hot tub for a certain amount of time, especially if you suffer from a certain health condition.
