We all know that exercise is good for us but did you also know that swimming/exercising in water also has an endless amount of health benefits?
LBhealthcare runs several weekly hydrotherapy class sessions each aimed at different levels of fitness and ability. Classes are enjoyable, can aid individuals with a number of medical conditions as the water helps to increase flexibility and decrease muscular and joint pain.
The warmth of the water relaxes the muscles, buoyancy assists or resists movement and the weightlessness decreases pain and stress on the joints.
Aquatic exercise in warm water also has the following benefits:
Aquatone Classes – fun, 45-minute toning and fitness classes held in our unique hydrotherapy pool. Classes focus on complete all over body muscle toning and general cardiovascular fitness.
Parkinson’s Group – a group class held by one of LBhealthcare’s Neurophysiotherapists employing exercises suitable for those with Parkinson’s Disease.
All our hydrotherapy classes are very popular so it is advisable to book in advance.
