  • Hydrotherapy, also known as Aquatic Physiotherapy, is a form of physiotherapy conducted in a heated pool. Aquatic Physiotherapy can help relieve pain, promote relaxation, mobilize joints, strengthen muscles, develop balance and coordination, and improve general fitness.
  • The Hydrotherapy Pool is heated to 35° Celsius which is optimal to achieve the many benefits that this therapeutic approach can offer, such as:
  • Muscular relaxation and decreased muscle spasm.
  • Decreased pain due to warmth and support.
  • Gravity is countered by buoyancy.
  • Increased muscle strength and endurance due to the greater resistance in water.
  • Improvement in swelling, due to hydrostatic pressure.
  • Enhanced balance and stabilization.
  • Improved enjoyment and confidence to move better.
