What is the Buoyancy Benefit?
The Buoyancy Benefit is the value of deep water in relationship to a person's body weight. The deeper the water, the less weight the body is burdened with during an exercising regiment. Submerging a body in deep warm water dramatically reduces the body weight by as much as 90%. Freeing the user to work even more on their recovery and wellness.
For example; if a body weight is 200 pounds, and of average height, in a ThermaPool the weight of the body is decreased all the way down to only 20 pounds. This dramatic reduction alone starts a healing process for a body. From the moment a user is submerged into the deep warm and soothing water of a ThermaPool, almost immediately they start the healing process.
• Decreasing Aches and Pain,
• Reducing Tension and Anxiety,
• Facilitating better Circulation and Respiratory Flow,
• Providing a Greater Range of Body Mobility, and
• Puts a Smile on the User's Face.
All this from simply stepping into a therapy pool. And if you begin a daily routine of warm water based exercises, you dramatically increase the wellness benefits - and the Buoyancy Benefit amplifies that dramatically.
A very good way to look at this is to imagine two people, of equal age and health, walking up a hill. Not a steep hill, just a gentle incline. One person is carrying a 100 pounds in a backpack, while the other one is not burdened with any additional weight at all. Which one would reach the top faster and with less effort? Now imagine doing that everyday. That is basically what a body endures everyday a person walks, moves and exercises. All the body weight is on the hips, legs, ankles and feet. Yet, when you submerge your body into a deep warm water ThermaPool, this weight is reduced by as much as 90%.
That is The Buoyancy Benefit - a reduction of your body’s weight during exercise in your very own warm water therapy pool.
Conversely, conventional spas do not offer this same type of value. Their shallow water depth only provides very little reduction of your body weight. These types of spas are unable to create any kind of meaningful movement therapy for a user. They provide zero Buoyancy Benefit as their minor reduction of body weight does not help your body at all.
As demonstrated earlier, The Buoyancy Benefit is the key ingredient to an effective aquatic physical therapy routine and only access to a deep warm water therapy pool provides this tremendous benefit.
