From Swim University

Hot Tubs have gained tremendous notoriety for their ability to relax one, their ability to provide rehabilitation for injuries, and their ability to provide a wonderful gathering place for intimacy and friends.  One of the least publicized, and least understood benefits from hot tub usage is the ability to help people that suffer from insomnia.  This post from Matt Giovanisci at Swim University presents not only the conjecture that a hot tub can help people fall asleep, it talks about the reasons why and how it actually works.
