Healing Aspects Of Water In Spas, and Pools

by Pool Builders on 08-22-2012 in Articles

The health benefits of water are vast. We have water aerobics to help reduce strain on muscles. We have birth pools where babies born into the water are lifted in mother's arms into the world. They say that woman with water births and babies alike are calmer, and more relaxed. In some cases it reduces the use of pain relievers. That says something right there about the power of warm water. Do you have to be exercising or birthing babies to enjoy the relaxing aspects of water? It is no wonder we created spas.

Imagine coming home from a long day at work, one of those days where everything went wrong. Imagine that you have a hot tub in your backyard. You enjoy dinner, you get the kids to bed and you slip into your swim suite. You grab a glass of wine, your husband and for about fifteen minutes you soak in warm water. As you soak you're not realizing that there are actually health benefits to this. You will sleep better, your muscle aches will lessen and you may even have less instance of back pain. Just the experience is relaxing, but the water is healing.

You use warm water for therapy pools. The health benefits include, improved flexibility, strengthen muscles, reduce swelling, reduce pain, and alleviating symptoms of most medical conditions. This option is particularly alluring because when joint stress and pain are reduced exercising is easier. In fact, like home spas therapy pools can be installed in one's home. No crowded gym, no locker room, and no traveling to get there.

There are a few things you should know about safely using warm water. The water chemistry must be carefully maintained. As with a swimming pool you must monitor the PH levels and add the proper chemicals per package instructions. It is important to note that a safe temperate for pregnant woman is very different from that of a safe temperate for someone not pregnant. Another consideration is that although children are safe to enjoy water activities they need supervision. Further it is recommended that you reduce the temperate or give them shorter intervals in the heated water. Another safety concern is that all users should have their hair up or be careful to not sit near any suction. You could get your hair sucked into a drain and have your head trapped under water.

Water is healing and vital to our lives, its no wonder it is healing as well. Finding the time to relax can be a challenge sometimes, but it too is important to your well- being. Therapy pools, spas, water aerobics and even a swimming pool can start you on a healing path.
