Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy (or aquatic exercise) is a form of rehabilitative exercise that takes place in a heated pool.
The warm water provides many positive benefits to your body: such as reducing the impact loading on joints (buoyancy) and stimulating blood flow to your muscles, making it easier to perform exercises that you may not be able to on dry land. It is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, but is most beneficial for people with chronic pain, recovering post-surgery or someone starting out on their fitness journey.

Even though some exercises may feel easier in the water, you can still increase your strength and cardiovascular fitness by performing the appropriate exercises in the pool. Our Hydrotherapy classes are designed and supervised by accredited Exercise Physiologist’s who tailor classes to increase your strength and endurance, improve your cardiovascular fitness, balance, mobility and overall function.

We offer three different rehabilitative Hydrotherapy classes that are 60 minutes in duration. An ability to swim is not necessary.

Class Types

Get Moving Class

Designed for individuals aiming to improve their overall health, the ‘Get Moving’ class focuses on a range of Hydrotherapy exercises that works all muscle groups. Throughout the class participants will improve their exercise tolerance, strength and cardiovascular fitness. It is an ideal treatment option for individuals wishing to manage medical conditions such as Diabetes or achieve weight loss in a safe and effective environment.
