Imagine coming home from a long day at work, one of those days where everything went wrong. Imagine that you have a Spa Pool (בריכות ספא) in your backyard. You enjoy dinner, you get the kids to bed and you slip into your swim suit. 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 Spa Pools (ג׳קוזי). 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 Spa Pool (בריכות ספא) 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.
