Hi there. I find very light swimming or just standing in a warm pool helps me. I live swimming anyway and I'm going to be trying to doing it a couple of times a week. I've joined a private gym though because I wouldn't be able to cope with the noise in a public baths. Also I find spa days help me. Very light massage with certain oils..you usually get to use the pool and jacuzzi when doing them. The jacuzzi is fantastic on the body. With the heat and bubbles it's therapy for your muscles. Youl come out tired but your muscle pain should have eased. Its all good for the mind too. Hope that helps a little. Sending lots of hugs to you xxx
