The heat from the back causes the natural scents of the oil to proliferate throughout the air, bringing peace and relaxation.

3/ Low Impact Exercise: Just because we’ve reached our senior years doesn’t mean we should stop exercising. No matter what our state of health, we should all look into what we can do to move our bodies as well as our minds. Well, there is no better place to find exercise that suits you than the walk-in tub. Movements can be less painful we weight is relieved from our joints when submerged in the water. Low impact weight bearing exercise is much more bearable as it lets the synovial fluid carry nutrients to where they’re needed most. Aquatic exercise reduces stress to our joints, ligaments and muscles hence minimizing the risk of injury while maximizing the benefits of activity.
