Water Therapy for Body and Spirit

Water Therapy for Body and Spirit
Ai Chi is a type of mind/body water therapy created in Japan. It’s a sequence of movements in the water that combine deep breathing and slow, broad movements. It’s thought to promote better balance and flexibility as well as strength and focus. Performed in a group setting, Ai Chi blends a sense of community with healthy physical activity.

Besides all that fatigue-fighting exercise, a little time in a lounge chair by the water can help ease stress and help you feel relaxed all over. Hanging around the pool is also a great way to meet people. Joining a swimmers group or water therapy class is a wonderful opportunity to become part of a support system. 

 

Multiple Sclerosis and Body Temperature
Some people with MS experience a temporary flare-up (pseudo-exacerbation) of symptoms when they become overheated. This can happen in a hot tub, sauna, in high temperatures, or even in a hot bath. If you’ve ever had a heat-related flare-up, you should avoid overheated pools and prolonged time in the sun.

On the other hand, a dip in a swimming pool can actually cool your body temperature and help you avoid that exacerbation. According to the National MS Society, 81 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit is a good water temperature. You may have to experiment a bit to find your sweet spot.

When you’re lounging by the pool on a hot day and start to feel overheated, a cool dip may set things right. 

 

Let’s Get Started!
Talk to your doctor before starting if you’re not sure you’re physically able to handle swimming or exercising in the pool. They may be able to refer you to a physical therapist or a class with qualified instructors.

Exercise benefits your bodies and your sense of wellbeing. When symptoms of MS interfere with your ability to exercise, water therapy can help you take control again. Whatever type of water therapy you choose, the positive feelings associated with the experience may be just the motivation you’ve been seeking.
