What is hydrotherapy?
'Hydrotherapy' simply means exercises performed in water.
Water has a buoyancy effect. This means you feel lighter in the water and there is less pressure on your joints compared to when you are on land. If the water is warm, It also relieves some of the pain which means you can move more freely.
Who is hydrotherapy for?
Hydrotherapy is great for those suffering with painful joints (such as back pain or knee pain) or those who find it difficult to exercise on land (such as after a stroke).
Can I do hydrotherapy if I can't swim?
Yes! The exercises are usually performed standing in the water and swimming is not required. Also, our Accredited Exercise Physiologist will be by your side throughout the entire session and the pools are supervised by lifeguards.
How much does hydrotherapy cost?
We charge $60 for a standard individual hydrotherapy session and you may need to pay an entry fee to the facility.
If you would like to bring along a friend or two, it might work out cheaper for all of you! For more information and to discuss eligibility, please contact us.
