Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is ideal for people recovering from muscle and joint pain or injury and beginning the early steps of a rehabilitation program.

Hydrotherapy is basically "Water Therapy" where the buoyancy, resistance and warmth of the water are all used in a positive manner to maximise the physical and mental benefits to the participant.

An exercise program in the aquatic environment can provide benefits not found in other areas and can advance individuals to their next level of fitness and mobility sooner.

Benefits of Hydrotherapy:

There are many benefits from participation in our hydrotherapy classes beyond the fact that the aquatic environment can be a lot more enjoyable and that the close supervision of a motivating trainer can make exercising a lot easier.

These include:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased aerobic fitness
  • Increased muscular strength
  • Relief of muscular tension
  • Decreased pain and muscular tension
  • Functional retraining for work

Psychological benefits can include:

  • Relaxation due to warmth and weightlessness
  • Increased feeling of health and wellbeing
  • Increased self confidence
  • Improved mood through positive interaction with other participants

All new participants are booked in for an initial health and fitness evaluation with one of our fully qualified hydrotherapy instructors. All instructors have undergone training and studies specialising in rehabilitation, sports injuries and functional training. From this initial evaluation and screening a personal program is designed for each individual and you begin to work with your trainer in the pool through each of the exercises to begin the recovery process. Each program is tailored to individual needs with the aim of increasing your range of movement and capacity to carry out day to day activities.
