The cold weather is here to stay and as everyone starts preparing for the festive period, you may want to take some time for yourself to relax before the rush of December hits – all those parties and events! The Stable bathhouse is a great place to unwind, not only in our state-of-the-art sauna and steam room, but also in our spa pool. Did you know that our spa pool is one of London’s largest? Read on to find out how your health could benefit from a dip in our waters.
Spa pools are a popular place relax. The warm water creates that soothing feeling whilst the gentle motion of the water can help relieve tired and achy joints and muscles. Recent developments have found that the warm water and it’s movements can help to improve overall health as it gently encourages the release of endorphins, which make you feel great and act as a natural painkiller, as well as encourage better blood flow. This is most beneficial to your overall health, as better blood flow means that oxygen and nutrients can be delivered around the body more efficiently. This can help to reduce tiredness, aches, speed up recovery and also lower blood pressure.
The warm, massaging actions of the water can be great for those who get involved with regular physical activity. As mentioned, blood flow is improved which helps to speed up the recovery process from particularly tough workouts, but also the buoyancy of the water helps to take pressure of your muscles and joints giving them the real break that they need to recover. Similarly, this massaging technique can greatly benefit those who struggle with aches and pains in the lower back. If you spend all day on your feet or sat at a desk, taking time out in a spa pool can really help to loosen up the lower back area and bring you some relief.
The Stable is home to one of central London’s largest spa pools and it has proven to be an exceptionally popular feature of our gay bathhouse with our male visitors. If you’d like to come and benefit from using our spa pool, you can find The Stable located just a few minutes away from Covent Garden and Soho’s gay village.
