Relieve aches, pains and stress at The Stable

Relieve aches, pains and stress at The Stable

There are many different causes as to why someone can suffer with aches, pains and stress, and they can interfere with everyday life. Aches and pains can prevent people from being active or being able to complete tasks fully, whilst stress can leave people feeling drained and unhappy which can lead to further health problems. Here at The Stable we offer a number of heat and wet facilities that can help relieve these problems. Aches and pains A lot of people work on their feet all day. Lifting heavy things regularly and taking part in physical activities can cause stiff joints and painful, tense muscles. Also, those sat at a desk all day are likely to feel the strain on their body. Spending eight hours a day crouched in front a computer can cause back and neck pain, and also cause the body to feel stiff from lack of movement. We have different facilities you can use to help improve your flexibility and release the tension in muscles to help soothe these aches and pains. Our sauna and steam room provide a warm heat that increases your blood flow, which helps your body to speed up the natural healing process. It also encourages the release of endorphins – your body’s feel good chemical. This creates a natural tranquilising effect, which reduces the pain of muscle soreness. You can also help soothe your muscles by taking a dip in our spa pool. When your body is immersed in the water you feel an automatic release as it makes you feel weightless. The jet streams in the spa pool also helps...
Refresh yourself inside and out at The Stable

Refresh yourself inside and out at The Stable

As the weeks pass, our bodies can become tired and achy and our skin can start to feel dull and worn out, so it’s important we take some time out at least once month to refresh ourselves. A trip to The Stable can be the perfect way to detoxify, this can make you look and feel better. Your Skin The facilities at The Stable offer a number of great benefits to the skin. The steam and the sauna rooms are the main places your skin will benefit, as these rooms are above room temperature and when you enter them your body heat rises. This increases your blood circulation and sweat production, which helps release any bad toxins from skin and draws more oxygen and nutrients to the surface your skin helping it become more moisturised and look healthier. Some studies say that saunas can help improve the reproduction of collagen which gives your skin strength and elasticity. When spending time in the sauna, your body is forced to excrete dead skin cells which helps to promote the growth of newer and healthier ones. A final benefit a sauna can have on the skin is cleansed pores. Spending time in the sauna induces heavy sweating which will cleanse your pores and glands. This will remove impurities from the skin, help prevent acne, pimples and blackheads, and leave your skin clear and smooth. Your Body As we age our bodies can begin to feel the pressure – you may begin to feel aches and pains in places you never even knew existed! Our steam room, sauna, spa pool and massage rooms...

After a tough workout, you’re going to want an effective way to relax and unwind those tense muscles. A great way to benefit after a workout is to make steam sessions a regular part of your routine. As well as being super relaxing, there has been evidence to show that steam room use can promote further health benefits and endurance in active people. An intense workout will quite often mean tired, achy muscles so by engaging in regular steam sessions you can improve the speed at which your body repairs itself. The heat of steam room encourages better blood flow therefore delivering oxygen and nutrients around the body at much more efficient pace. This will speed up the recovery process and it can also create a temporary pain relief to soothe those tired muscles. A steam room is also a great place to stretch out after a workout, however we do only mean gentle stretching. The effects of the heat we’ve previously mentioned can allow you to feel more limber and relaxed making it much easier to get those much needed stretches in. Stretching will also help to get oxygen and nutrients to tired joints. If you suffer from high blood pressure, you could also benefit from long term use of steam rooms. The improved blood flow and oxygen and nutrient levels has the potential to alleviate symptoms, however it’s always worth seeking medical advice before using these facilities.
