We sat down with long time member of the body blitz community, Lorraine Wright, and asked her a few questions about her body blitz experience and about her life.
How long have you been part of the body blitz community?
I have been part of the body blitz community for 8 yrs.
Tell us about your first experience with body blitz?
My first experience with body blitz was one of relief. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I had recently been diagnosed with severe arthritis in the hips and knees and had started walking with a cane. My friend Fred lived across the street from the first body blitz location and watched it being built. She could hardly wait for it to open. Her membership was # 5. As a child she was the victim of a car accident that left her partially paralyzed and she grew up with a walking challenge. She wasted no time in inviting me on her guest pass to enjoy the water treatments. A few months later I had both my hips replaced and body blitz was part of my recovery.
How often do you visit the waters?
I visit the waters once a week.
What is your favourite part of the water circuit and why?
My favorite part of the water treatment is the hot Epson Salt pool because I can feel the pain and stiffness being sucked out of my body ... and my tub at home is not long enough to immerse the whole body.
How has your health changed since using the body blitz therapeutic waters?
My health since using the water is mostly evident in my mobility.
What is your best beauty/health secret?
Keep it moving & smile.
