The wet therapy zone includes a plunge pool, 12-metre swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, spa and sauna designed for everyone from sporting backgrounds to workplace cover rehabilitation.
The warmth and buoyancy of Hydrotherapy water can help to reduce muscle spasm, increase circulation and reduce pain. It is particularly beneficial for those people who suffer from injuries or musculoskeletal conditions that are easily aggravated by weight-bearing or land-based exercises.
By reducing the risk of aggravation clients are confidently able to improve their strength, flexibility, postural control and mobility.
The therapeutic benefits include muscular relaxation, increased muscle strength/endurance due to greater resistance in water & improvement in swelling, balance and core stability.
The heat from a sauna soothes the nerve endings and warms and relaxes muscles, in turn relieving the tension from the body and minimizing joint pain.
This is especially beneficial for those who suffer from illnesses such as arthritis, painful migraines, and headaches.
The sauna heats up your body, so when you leave and begin to cool down, your body releases increased levels of melatonin, helping you feel more relaxed and therefore allowing you to have a deeper sleep.
Contrast bathing can be used to reduce swelling around injuries or to aid recovery from exercise. It can also significantly improve muscle recovery following exercise by reducing the levels of blood lactate concentration.
Studies suggest that contrast water therapy is superior to using passive recovery or rest after exercise.
