Hydro Massage

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone, 

Since Suzie and I are now on Medicare, United Healthcare allowed us to upgrade our current membership at Planet Fitness. We moved up from Basic to Black Card. This opened up the massage tables and tanning booths. Today I used a Hydro Massage Table, and Wow that was worth the price of admission.

This afternoon’s workout was a good one. I’ve been able to keep my weight fairly consistent by working hard in the shop, and watching my food intake. I really do like to work out in the gym too. We have a Planet Fitness less than a mile from our house. We both have memberships, however Suzie isn’t motivated to workout, and thinks if I go by myself, I’m isolating and ignoring family.

 

My Suzie in not a disciplined eater, and never seamed to care about my being Type ll Diabetic, always needing to watch my carbs and sugar. She has always fixed pastas, bake breads, and cookies. Then get aggravated when I wouldn’t eat any of it. When I would remind her that while I love what she has cooked, I just can’t eat that much of it, and I would have a very small plate or bowl. Then she would look at me and say, Is that all you’re going to eat!? Some times I just eat a few meatballs and some sauce, but completely pass on the breads. 
 

Well, guess who was diagnosed as Type ll Diabetic? Ms Suzie. That’s right her new doctor said she needs to get a firm hold on her diet and exercise. We started ordering three meals a week from Home Chef, to meet low carb and sugars. She has also asked to go to the gym every other day. Oh and we are not having pancakes and waffles for breakfast as often either. 
 

I hope she can adjust to this new lifestyle. 
Here’s my workout focus today.

Some info from google)

Charcot- Power
shower got this name from its inventor Jean Charcot, and was originally intended for the treatment of neurological diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, as well as improve the overall vitality, hardening and strengthening the immune system. Later it was noticed that it geives other positive results too: people who are overweight could reduce weight, the skin quality was effectively improved and actually treated from cellulite. Thus it promoted further expansion of the scope of shower procedure.

Thanks to the Charcot shower the blood circulation improves, as well improves the function of internal organs of the body, and generally the overall tone goes up. Power shower is used to strength the body and to boost immunity.

Indications of Charcot shower are for:

  • Treatment and prevention of neurasthenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, neurosis, irritability, depression, and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Toning the whole body, it has a beneficial effect on the human psyche
  • Prevention of low immunity. (Not in the period of the disease)
  • The auxiliary procedure for rehabilitation after injuries of the musculoskeletal system. (The procedure must be appointed by orthopedist)
  • Treatment of low back pain, arthritis and arthrosis
  • When muscle atrophy due to genetic disease or injury
  • As part of an integrated treatment of obesity

Careful with the torso rotations @Mmindy. If you do those wrong, you can really jack up your spine. For working my abdominals, I prefer crunches, oblique crunches and the Roman chair. Pity you're not closer, my workout groups are a lot of fun.

 

Hugs!

Thank you for the additional info @dandy1harper I know my Suzie will love to see it.

 

@Jackie C.I just completed my follow up with OrthoIndy about my back, and the 4 weeks of physical therapy has paid off. Yoga, has become a big part of my daily routine now, and I don't count it as part of my workout. In the process of treating my back injury, they pointed out the amount of arthritis I have in my lower back pelvis, and hip region. So daily stretching is a must to keep thing where they are. I would love to find a fun workout group, right now it's just Suzie and I and she doesn't want a workout buddy. She want to get into her headphones and zone out on the weights. I'm just happy she's back in the gym.

 

🙏🏻 Namaste, 🙏🏻

Yes, good point. I've been doing Yoga for my back for a long time. I have to but I find it's also good for my posture and balance and for stress.

Good morning Davie,

 

I'm just now getting into it as a result of a back injury late last year.

 

Hugs,

      I donate the last of my daughter's male clothes 9 months ago, she wanted to part with every piece of it and i don't blame her.  It just seems like once she transitioned, she did not want to go back.

      They did a wonderful job making the doll actually look like Laverne Cox.

      https://www.nbcnews.com/nbc-out/out-news/trans-womans-photo-used-spread-baseless-online-theory-texas-shooter-rcna30511   I'm not the least surprised by this.  This is what conspiracy theorists do.  They're also spreading rumors that the shooter was an undocumented alien, which even the Texas governor said is false.    Carolyn Marie

      I saw "Theydies & Gentlethem" on a tee-shirt and just found it so delightful.   That's all. That's the whole post, lol.   P.S. Now if only there were a gender neutral version of "ma'am". OMG, I feel I've been ma'am'ed about a hundred fifty million times this week on the phone as I've been attending to a variety of medical appointments and issues...

      That makes complete sense to me, @Cary . I usually don't tell people that I'm trans/nonbinary/possibly-trans-masc/asexual/panromantic/etc., but I have experienced personal affirmation exploring and identifying with microlabels because doing so has helped me to put more of the puzzle pieces of my past together so that I can increase my potential to experience life as a more integrated human now. For instance, understanding myself as panromantic has helped me to understand certain past behaviors, inclinations, and interactions which seemed most irregular, confusing, and distressing in the past - when I recall a thing that used to seem confounding, and am able to say, ooooohh, that's what that was, then I feel like I make more sense to myself. Moreover, through understanding identification with some microlabels I've experienced healing as I am able to construe certain past stressful experiences in the context of performance, overcompensation, or internalized phobia.    I can't say whether there's a general consensus about microlabels within this community, but I dare say that there is a consensus that each of us should do whatever we feel in our hearts is right for us in order to be safe, healthy, and whole.

      Good morning all.  0820hrs and already 60 on the fenceometer. Glad it's going to be a nice day. I need to get some stuff finished on the wagon for our trip tomorrow. We are heading to Lincoln for the weekend. As the 31st is my oldest grandsons birthday. Taking him and my granddaughter to Cars and Coffee Sat at Speedway Motors.   I still don't get my wife. yesterday, we go and look at a house. She is OK with me wearing a ladies Harley t with a padded bra. obviously, showing that I have breasts. Go figure. I guess even women don't understand women.   We put in an offer for this home. Should hear something later today.   Well off to the salt mines in a bit, but first coffee. As always brought to you today by Folgers.   Hugs,   Kymmie

      Best practice is to call them and ask. I'm covered because of my alopecia but some providers allow scalp prosthetics for trans patients too.   I personally didn't get fitted, but I'm like THE adjustable band size. Default fits me great. They'll absolutely fit and style it for you at the boutique though. Honestly it was a great experience.   My wig-seller actually warned me off human hair. It's WAY more expensive, doesn't wear as well and it's harder to dye if you're trying to color match. She basically said human hair is great if you want black.   But check out Raquel Welch and Renee of Paris depending on what your hair situation is and see what you like.   Hugs!

      Good morning everyone,   It's going to be a hot day in the shop. Hair up in a ponytail then up under a welding beanie, so I can wear my face-shield for grinding and then the welding helmet. Bib overalls, long sleeve denim shirt, leather apron, and heavy gloves. I'll stay hydrated, and aware of my physical condition, as I sweat away the pounds. On the days I work hard, I don't workout. Fans will be blowing from all directions.   Best wishes, positive motivation, and safety for all,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Thanks for asking, @Cary.   I identify to some extent as Trans Non-Binary . . . but I try to take the advice I've heard here on TP. To work on creating what's right for me, beyond the labels. It's more like creating a story for myself rather work under a label. To chat over coffee does not require me to have read your resume. I will learn about you in context of your own on-going life, not from the name on your lapel tag. It may not be that instantly satisfying, but it's far more interesting. Enjoy the ride. Warning: all new roads have bumps.   — Davie

      Is it someone who you can confide in? Is it inner strength and courage? Is it your favorite pet? What helps you get through the pain?
    • Willow
      Hi   @KathyLauren I didn’t think about that answer.  But you are right.  There are times and situations where we must care for ourselves in order to be able to care for others.   @CD Rachel I’m glad you heard back from “Marie”.  I know how upset you were, and how happy you are.   have a great day everyone    Willow

      This is pretty much my situation as well. I didn't (and still don't) have the funds for electrolysis and surgery.  But I do have HRT.   Just for the record, there can be unexpected not-so-fun things. But I'm sure you are aware of that.

      Shipping to New Zealand from France is likely no more expensive than the States.  What one do you like?  My partner knows French so they can help navigating the website ☺️

      Thanks!  I'm going to try the two sports bra idea.  We're headed into winter here, so I can wear some bulky clothes over while I experiment.
