June is Lipedema Awareness Month - Water Fitness

Water fitness (aqua aerobics, aqua jogging or walking) is such a great option for those with Lipedema (and Lymphedema). 

Standing in waist high (or higher) water acts like gradient compression, which is so good for improving our lymphatic and venus functions. 

The buoyancy is easier on painful joints and improves your balance. 

The resistance the water provides is great for muscles, and the resistance works our muscles in pairs, for a more balanced workout. 

The water also cools you down, and eliminates excess heat, which is something to be mindful of with Lipedema/Lymphedema. 

So much good stuff going on in the pool!
