Aquatic Therapy is the therapist supervised treatment of a wide range of conditions in a heated pool (34 36˚C).
Aquatic Therapy utilises the warmth (to relax muscles), the buoyancy (to assist or resist movement) and the weightlessness (to decrease pain and decre as e stress on joints) of the water. Aquatic exercise in warm water improves the pumping action of the heart, makes the lungs work harder, relaxes muscles, reduces pain and unloads the joints.
Aquatic Therapy is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels and as our pools are at a safe depth, so you do not need t o be able to swim to benefit from Aqua therapy.
Your head does not have to go under the water and your feet can remain firmly on the ground if necessary.
