WHAT IS IT FOR?

Swimming

Hydrotherapy has evolved over the years to be considered a comprehensive intervention for the recovery, maintenance, pre-hab, or re-hab of a number of conditions. Aquatic bodywork® is particularly effective for:

WHAT TO EXPECT

Swimming

The session is one-one in a private, indoor, heated hydrotherapy pool.

The hydrotherapist is in the water with the patient throughout the treatment. She applies a combination of active and passive techniques that are tailored to your needs and limits.

The session typically lasts for one hour. The first half is active (exercise and stretches) and the second half is passive – where you are usually floated on their back using special floatation devices under the head and legs, and do absolutely nothing. This puts the body into a neutral position and allows the therapist three-dimensional access to the whole body so that bodywork can be applied.

Benefits are usually seen from the first session. The frequency of sessions is tailored to each patient. You don’t need to be able to swim.
