Hydrotherapy with Jubilee
20 February, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Are you retired, live at home or with family and would like to get fit in 2017?
Why not try Hydrotherapy every Monday with us! We pick you up, take you to class and then drop you back home safely.
Hydrotherapy is an excellent alternative therapy for seniors. People may have limitations that keep them from exercising regularly. The warmth of the water will increase blood flow, while the water provides mild resistance that increases muscle strength and improves flexibility. The movement of the water over the skin is similar to a mild massage that soothes the muscles and joints. The health and healing benefits of hydrotherapy include:
Reduces muscle tension and relieves pain: The weightlessness you feel when under water relieves tension in the limbs, supports aching muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, acting as a natural pain reliever.
Rehabilitates injured muscles: Being immersed in warm or hot water raises the body temperature, increasing blood flow around the circulatory system and so alleviating pain. The improved circulation will in turn help to heal injured tissues and rehabilitate damaged muscles or joints.
Boosts the immune system: The increased blood flow and circulation of white blood cells around the body therefore strengthens the immune system, helping to fight colds and illnesses.
Relieves stress: Hydrotherapy can help to reduce blood pressure caused by stress. It may also slow down the body’s reaction to anxiety and release endorphins – a natural stress fighter.
