SCUBA diving has becoming a renowned sport not only for tourist but also for other people as well. It is a combination of exercise and a great place to discover underwater creatures. Let us focus on the health benefits that scuba diving can offer.

Lowers your blood pressure

Sometimes when me take our dive, our body will be immersed in colder temperature which may cause a spike to your heart rate which may cause rise on your blood pressure. Slow breathing and deep breathing is the key for a successful dive. Be calm in your descend in the water so you won’t experience sudden heart rate raise. However, if you feel that your heart has experienced sudden high blood pressure, you may seek advice in your local health professional before you take a dive.

Develops your muscles

As you paddle yourself through the water during diving, your muscles work harder because the resistance is greater inside the water. The resistance is caused by the current and the water itself. The more you move, the more your muscles will build strength, strengthen and develop flexibility as well as endurance. It will also build your upper body muscles and strengthen your leg muscles. These in summary, it’s like you are doing an overall workout of your body.

Water theraphy

Water has various healing effects. It gives you a homey feeling, a feeling of happiness and sense of security. Also, if you stayed in the sea for long periods of time can cause your body to dehydrate, because of the salt water that is in the ocean. So, every after your dive, you might want to drink lots of fluids so your body will replenish water from your body. By doing this, it will also replenish your cells.
