Zero Body Impact
Better than Low Impact Exercises: Walking is an example of a low impact exercise, but even this kind of low impact movement has an impact on the body. And it is usually the aching part of the body that gets impacted. Exercises performed in a ThermaPool have zero body impact. This means that when you do stretching exercises in a ThermaPool you are not straining a part of the body that is in pain, allowing you to work on exercising the part of the body that needs it without adversely impacting the rest of the body.
Zero body impact is unique with a ThermaPool because of the amount of water depth available. Most spas and swim spas do not have the kind of in-home water depth a ThermaPool provides.
Land based exercises can have negative body impact, whereas the same exercise in a ThermaPool has a positive body impact. Zero body impact is the result of 90% body weight buoyancy in a ThermaPool. This buoyancy eliminates the negative impact your body weight has on the injured area. Plus, your ThermaPool also provides you with warm water, which creates a positive body impact. This soothing environment promotes greater circulation and calms the nerves generating a far more pleasant exercising atmosphere.
Gyms and community pools are great places for fun and to hang out. But the truth is, a person who is suffering from some type of painful and even debilitating ailment feels intimidated by the presence of so many very active and aggressive athletes. One of our customers stated she felt eyes staring at her as she just tried to do simple exercises. Sometimes the eyes were with sympathy, often times they were annoyed by her presence. No one needs this added grief. With a ThermaPool you create your own routine, at your own pace, with your own music, for your own benefit.
