Swimming PoolS For Excercise

We hear the phrase ‘health benefits’ thrown around these days, so what are the Health Benefits of a swimming pool. There actually are a surprisingly large amount of benefits to swimming and owning a backyard pool. And the first one is that swimming is simply one form of exercise that most people enjoy!

Almost all your muscles are used when you are swimming which means it provides an all over body workout, tones your muscles and builds strength. Around 90% of your body weight is supported by the water. The relatively weightless environment and support from the water helps to overcome painful movement in the joints that are affected by various condition. It also creates the perfect conditions for low impact therapy. Low impact therapy is ideal for people with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, people with disabilities or those suffering from a long-term injury or illness.

Swimming even has the added benefit of reducing further risk of arthritis by allowing a person to maintain their normal muscle strength and structure of joints. So swimming is not only one of the great exercises for arthritis but also for preventing arthritis.


Swimming Pools For the Mind

Not only does swimming provide a fantastic form of exercise, it also is great for the mind. We often associate water with relaxation, and so it makes sense that being immersed in water will bring peace and alleviate stress. Very welcome benefits in our fast pace society. 

Some of the mental health benefits of swimming and being active are: improving mood, increasing self-esteem, lowers the risk of depression, slows dementia and cognitive decline, improves sleep and reduces stress.

Here are our top tips for mental health benefits of a Swimming Pool:

  1. Start off small and build  your swimming ability at a pace that works for you. Even small amounts of swimming can give you a natural energy boost.
  2. Get a buddy to join you. Swimming with friends is a great way to give you that extra motivation to jump in.
  3. When you are in the pool, concentrate on your surroundings, your breathing in the water and the way your body moves through the water. Being present in the moment helps calm and alleviate anxiety.


The Value Of Mineral and Magnesium Pools

Owning your own pool will give you more opportunity and incentive to take advantage of the mental and physical benefits. Not only for the convenience that owning your own pool offers you, but also because owning your own pool means you get to choose what water is best for your pool.

Companies like Theralux are bringing the ancient practice of soaking in mineral-dense bodies of water to the comfort of your own home. As much as we would all love to be able to trek across Europe to soak in the many mineral rich natural baths, it is actually practical and more of a long term benefit to own your own.

By adding minerals to your pool water, you have the added health benefits of repairing nerve and muscle function, deeply relaxing your mind and body, increasing skin elasticity and hair health, soothing skin conditions and improving energy levels and sleep.

Transdermal absorption is when we absorb through the skin. When we swim in mineral rich water, these minerals have a positive affect on body by lowering blood pressure helping our nervous system to calm the physical symptoms of stress and anxiety. The better absorption of calcium strengthens bone density and the body’s immune system. Our skin comes out feeling soft and silky because it has absorbed moisture instead of being dried out by chlorine. And magnesium strengthens our hair follicles. All these minerals aid the circulation of blood to your heart, muscles and brain. They level out your energy so that you function well during the day and sleep well at night.
