Hydrotherapy is a form of gentle exercise in a warm pool to help people with their rehabilitation or general health and wellbeing for all ages. The buoyancy, warm and hydrostatic pressure of the water decreases gravity and increases stability which helps encourages gentle movements that usually can not be performed on land.

  • Chronic and persistent pain
  • Osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis
  • Neurological conditions
  • Post-surgery such as post knee or hip replacement or back surgery
  • Post injury
  • Lower back and Sciatic pain
  • General deconditioning and mobility
  • And much more
