Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy has many benefits for your health & wellbeing and is a great medium for promoting relaxation, mobilising joints, strengthening muscles and assisting with balance and coordination difficulties in a safe and comfortable environment.

A session in our 20 metre indoor warm water pool will help increase circulation, reduce muscle spasm and relieve aches and pains. You do not need to be able to swim in order to benefit from hydrotherapy. Water exercise may be used alone or in conjunction with other rehabilitation programs and is often a stepping stone for patients to progress to land based exercise programs.
