Benefits of Warm Water Therapy
Water provides an environment which reduces body weight by 90% when standing in shoulder depth water.
Warm water also reduces spasticity and relaxes muscles allowing individuals to move with greater mobility and with less pain.
Warm water increases joint and muscle strength and flexibility.
Water is 12 times more viscous than air therefore provides greater resistance to movement when compared to land. The result is that the muscles involved receive a more comprehensive workout.
Warm water feels good and promotes relaxation, increases respiration, circulation, balance, strength, coordination and endurance.
