Soothe joint pain!
Soaking in seawater relieves the swelling and stiffness of rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, reveal two studies. When healing seawater compounds enter your pores, they inhibit the cellular changes that trigger inflammation, reports Immunology. Swimming in the sea offers extra benefits by improving your strength and flexibility without putting stress on your joints! ■ Get the benefit anywhere! “Add two cups of Epsom salts under the faucet as you run a bath and soak for 20 minutes, so the healing mineral salts and relaxing magnesium can enter through the skin,” advises massage therapist Michele Haight, LMT.
