Baths help our muscles in a number of ways. The warm water helps our muscles to relax as the heat soothes our muscles. It can also help any strains and tensions that have arisen in the muscles to start to release. The warm water also helps to improve our circulation. This can mean that the increased blood flow helps to increase the oxygen and the number of nutrients that are carried to the muscles.
