Hydrotherapy

Conducted under physiotherapist supervision in a purpose-built hydrotherapy pool that is heated to 34°C 

Hydrotherapy is extremely effective in aiding pain relief and rehabilitation, drawing on the warmth, buoyancy and gentle resistance provided by the water. 

 

As a low-impact exercise program, it is suitable for people of all ages and is particularly beneficial to people in their senior years.
