About our Hydrotherapy Magnesium Mineral Pool
Our Hydrotherapy Magnesium Mineral Pool can do wonders for your health, combining the health and fitness benefits both hydrotherapy and magnesium can have on the body.
Heated to +32 degrees, the warmth of the water allows your muscles to relax, easing the pain in your joints. While the water density helps support your weight - fighting against the force of gravity, allowing you to exercise and move with more freedom and less pain. The water can be used to provide resistance to moving your joints. By pushing your arms and legs against the water, you can also improve your muscle strength.
Hydrotherapy exercises can be tailored to your individual needs, so you can start to slowly and gradually build up your strength and flexibility. While the warmth of the water helps promote blood flow and circulation of white blood cells around the body more efficiently, therefore strengthening the immune system, helping to fight illnesses.
Health reports from around the world indicate that many people are magnesium deficient, either due to poor dietary nutrition or poor farming methods used to cultivate the foods we eat.
Studies have proven that absorbing magnesium chloride through the skin (transdermal) is one of the most effective ways for the body to maintain healthy levels of this important mineral. Magnesium is responsible for many important cellular processes in the body. It can support detoxification, reduce stress and alleviate aches. It promotes energy and wellbeing, and can restore soft and healthy skin.
On top of the benefits listed above, you’ll also find that mineral pool water just feels different, almost silky smooth. A swim in a magnesium mineral pool can sooth skin conditions, especially for those who are easily irritated by traditional chlorinated pools. Eyes will experience little to no irritation, and hair and skin won’t have that strong chlorine smell.
Hydrotherapy is used for a number of different injuries:
Post-operative: Hydrotherapy is especially useful for early stage rehabilitation following joint surgeries such as hip/knee replacements, ligament reconstructions or post fracture. In the first 4-8 weeks after surgery (varies between procedures) people experience pain with putting their bodyweight through the affected area. Hydrotherapy allows us to get these patients walking normally earlier in their rehabilitation process by reducing these forces.
Chronic Pain: People with Chronic pain often have difficulty with exercising because even with low to mid impact exercise such as walking their pain levels flare up. Hydrotherapy is a great way for these people to exercise at lower impact while still challenging the muscles and cardiovascular system.
Arthritis: Arthritis falls in a similar basket to chronic pain – as patients load their joints up during full weight bearing exercise they may experience pain. Exercising in the water reduces this load and allows them to exercise pain free. The warmth of the water is also extremely beneficial for aching and stiffness associated with arthritis.
Sports Injuries/Recovery: Hydrotherapy is also excellent for recovering from post-match or training soreness as well as muscle injuries. As well as the benefits mentioned above, the water exerts ‘hydrostatic pressure’ onto the submerged areas which creates a compression effect. This means that any inflammatory response occurring will be reduced.
As well as the injuries and condition mentioned above, hydrotherapy gives the same benefits as regular exercise. Regular hydrotherapy improves heart and lung function, circulation, muscle strength and endurance and releases endorphins which are good for mental health.
