Sometimes we have to go back and look at natural remedies that our parents and grandparents used and be given a reminder as to why they worked and why they used them. I think Epsom salt is a good example, inexpensive, and has some amazing benefits. Epsom salt bath is the best tennis training technique for recovery.
Epsom salt is a mineral compound comprised of magnesium and sulfate. It has been used for many many years as a natural remedy. Both magnesium and sulfate are minerals that are very important to tennis players. After strenuous tennis exercise, through your sweat tennis players will lose essential electrolytes. (Especially magnesium and sulfate). One of the best ways to replenish the body of these essential minerals is through our largest organ, our skin. When Epsom salt is dissolved in warm water it is absorbed through the skin and can naturally replenish lost magnesium and sulfate. This will help increase your energy levels.
If you want to get tennis results from all your hard work, then we recommend 2 full cups of Epsom salts in a hot bath; soak for at least 10 minutes for detoxification three times a week. It can be readily absorbed into the skin, which makes the health benefits readily accessible. Here are just a few ways a tennis player can benefit from bathing in Epsom salts.
Next time you are sore from a hard day of training for tennis and you need to back up the next day to get some great tennis results, don’t forget to get yourself in an Epsom salt bath. You will be surprised how good you will feel.
