Waltonwood Ashburn is proud to be the only senior living community in Loudoun County that offers a saltwater therapy pool for its residents. We are excited to provide senior living residents with all of the benefits that the pool has to offer, which include enhanced mental and physical wellness and comfort.
Saltwater Therapy Pool Benefits
Our Waltonwood communities focus on a holistic approach to senior living with a goal of empowering residents’ minds, bodies, and spirits. Our saltwater therapy pool at our senior living community in Ashburn, Virginia offers numerous benefits to meet these purposes.
● Better Skin
Saltwater can soften and smooth your skin. It serves as a natural exfoliator, and research has shown that it can help improve skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and adult acne.
● Stress Reduction
Saltwater has been shown to soothe tense muscles and aching joints, ultimately leading to a calmer state of mind.
● More Water Purity
While chlorinated pools have many similar benefits, the chlorine can be irritating to some seniors’ skin and eyes. The scent of chlorine can also linger on bodies and clothing.
● Improved Fitness
Water exercises in general are some of the most beneficial forms of exercise for seniors, especially because there is not as much wear and tear on joints and muscles. Saltwater is ideal for seniors who have arthritis, as it has been shown to reduce swelling and inflammation. Ultimately, better fitness in general can improve seniors’ heart health, balance, range of motion, posture, and mobility.
● Social Factors
At Waltonwood Ashburn, we offer seniors water exercise classes as well as the ability to use the saltwater therapy pool on their own time. It’s an enjoyable way to socialize with other members of our Waltonwood Ashburn senior living community.
