In an old post, I have discussed the benefits of sand therapy for people with arthritis.
From my own experience, sand therapy brings relief to my joints.
Remember though that sand therapy is not a cure. However, sand therapy can relieve the stiffness and pain in arthritis joints. Besides, arthritis patients need some form of exercise that is not straining, right?
I’m not sure if there is a scientific explanation for beach therapy against arthritis pain, but according to a local old wives’ tale, it does work.
But anyway, just think of the exercise (not to mention fun!) that you’ll get at the beach, and the early morning sunshine — if it is good for your bones, it will be good for your joints.

Since the Christmas rush started and family members started coming home for the holidays, I’ve only been to the beach once. ONCE.
WOW. The beach, the sand and the sun is a great treat somebody like who has been stuck in this little hole, blogging the days away even in between the holidays.
We leave this coming Sunday to the first real beach holiday that I will take my son too. I have personally resolved in the New Year that this year will be a year that my son and I go places. If not out of the country, even out of town will do.
The Philippines has 7, 107 islands. The majors ones are tropical paradises. Most importantly, I am not going to let osteoarthritis get in the way of traveling.
This one particular beach paradise is waiting for us:
While I cannot wait to get there, I have work to do.
First of all, I need fill this blog (and my other blogs too!) with posts that will last until the end of next week.
I have less than 48 hours to do just that. Wish me luck. 😉
Beach and sand therapy…here we come!
