AQUATIC TRAINING CAN HELP IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP QUALITY

Can’t sleep? Try aquatic training to improve your sleep quality

Here’s an interesting tidbit from the Sleep Health Foundation: more than half of all Australian adults suffer from at least one chronic sleep symptom that prevents them from living a happy and healthy life. A study commissioned by the organisation found that 60% of the adult population experience a sleep symptom such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, with 14.8% having symptoms that could result in a diagnosis of clinical insomnia.

There are recommended interventions to help people sleep better ranging from meditation to relaxation techniques, biofeedback to improving sleep environments, and as a final resort, medication. But did you know that hydrotherapy and other forms of aquatic training can help you sleep better?

Training in water offers a lot of sleep-enhancing benefits. For starters, exercising in a water environment helps relax the muscles and alleviate tension and stress. If you have joint health issues, aquatic exercises let you train without causing further stress on your joints and contribute to joint health.

As water has a cooling effect, it can help regulate your body’s temperature, an important factor in the sleep-wake cycle. Buoyancy in the water provides a sense of relaxation and weightlessness, calming your mind. Lastly, aquatic training can help improve your circulation and promote a sense of physical wellbeing essential to improving your sleep quality.

If you’re having difficulty sleeping well at night, why not head to our hydrotherapy pool in Healthstin Elizabeth? You can chat with our Exercise Experts to find out how water exercises can help improve your sleep quality. Call 1300 090 931 or click this link now.
