What can your own hydrotherapy pool offer you?
Hydrotherapy is essentially the therapeutic use of water to help ease certain conditions or just to bring relief to the usual aches and pains of every day life. As anyone who has ever had it will know, hydrotherapy is one of the most effective ways to strengthen muscles and relieve pain but it’s often quite difficult to access. That’s why a hydrotherapy pool of your own has some major benefits.
Supported, non-weight bearing exercise
In water, the body is just 10% of its normal weight so hydrotherapy offers a much gentler environment for exercise and muscle building. A hydrotherapy pool at home provides personal access whenever you need it – no shared facilities or appointments and no need to arrange transport. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or looking to strengthen weak muscles, a hydrotherapy pool in your own home can make targets easier to meet and recovery objectives quicker to reach.
Soothing chronic conditions
Hydrotherapy has a positive effect on a number of conditions, including arthritis, back pain and groin strains. It also provides great relief for those coping with disease such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease. The pain and discomfort of these conditions can come and go without warning, which is why access to your own hydrotherapy pool is essential for instant and timely relief.
General fitness and wellness
Reducing muscle spasm and stimulating circulation are just a couple of the benefits of hydrotherapy that we could all use on a regular basis. Whether you’re a sports fanatic looking for a way to wind down or you have aches and pains from sitting at a desk all day, access to a hydrotherapy pool of your own means you can treat your body to regular therapeutic sessions to keep it in great shape.
Fun and relaxation
Hot and cold water – and the body’s reaction to them – have long been a way for humans to wind down and relax. In fact, even the Romans and the Greeks were doing it. While warm water tends to soothe and slow the body down, cold water stimulates and invigorates. Alternating between the two can be a great way to boost your physical and emotional wellbeing, wind down, have fun and relax.
An asset to your home
As a hydrotherapy pool has such as wide range of different uses it is a great way to add value to your home. Whether for recreational or therapeutic purposes, the pool is always an asset to your property and the broad range of aesthetic options means there’s a design to suit every type of interior. Tiled or concrete pools can be designed to the dimensions and aesthetic that you require, with features such as resistance jets and marine grade stainless steel exercise bars to create the hydrotherapy pool that’s perfect for you.
