What to wear for Hydrotherapy

Is Hydrotherapy something that you are incorporating into your lifestyle?Before diving in, let's unpack the swimwear you'll be needing to make the most out of your sessions!  

What is Hydrotherapy? 

As the name suggests Hydrotherapy is a therapeutic practice that uses water to promote healing and relaxation, providing a holistic approach to wellness. Through the careful manipulation of water's temperature, buoyancy and pressure hydrotherapy offers numerous health benefits, providing relief from muscle tension, joint pain and even stress. Hydrotherapy is a great form of water based therapy to enhance overall health and vitality. 

Hydrotherapy Swimwear

When it comes to hydrotherapy your choice of swimwear can play a significant role in the quality and overall experience of the session. Here are a few key features to look out for when it comes to selecting the best swim piece for you.  

One of the main things to ensure with swimwear for hydrotherapy is selecting swimwear that is non restrictive, flexible and easy to move in. Opt for one piece swimsuits that offer great support and coverage. Our top tips are to select swimwear with adjustable straps to ensure the perfect fit for you! Prioritize comfort by selecting swimwear that fits snugly without being too tight or restrictive. We are loving Speedo's Contour Motion One Piece for Hydrotherapy sessions. If one pieces aren't quite for you opt for a tankini and pair with a high waist bikini bottom or boyleg pant. But make sure the tankini singlet is a firm fitting style as you don't want your top to float up or be loose in the water while trying to workout!

Hydrotherapy sessions typically take place in a pool or spa, both of which generally contain chlorine and other chemicals, thus its important to select chlorine resistant styles that can withstand these chemicals to ensure longevity, durability and overall quality of your swimwear for many more sessions to come.
