Consider the Healing Power of Therapeutic Exercise In Water
Therapeutic exercise in water is a highly regarded approach to rehabilitation. Water has many therapeutic properties that make it a superior healing environment. Warm water (87 degrees) reduces pain, softens muscles, and improves circulation. Water’s buoyancy off loads body weight from the spine and major joints, naturally creating space between bones, allowing for pain free, more comfortable movement. Hydrostatic pressure of water against the body optimizes healthy venous return, lowering blood pressure, while enhancing the efficiency of heartbeats without stress to the heart. The natural resistance of the water during movement slows and supports the body in motion, improves body awareness and in turn improves safety, later this resistance provides opportunities for balanced all body strengthening. Water therapy is versatile and is recommended for those facing a wide range of health conditions, injuries and chronic illness.
Customize and Personalize Aquatic Therapy with a Private Lesson
Aquatic therapy is very helpful for rehab of chronic disease, poor balance, falling issues, difficultly walking, and chronic pain. Consider on- going private lessons, to address your health issues, mobility challenges and water safety concerns.
Expect to acquire better mobility, flexibility, balance, gait, posture and body alignment, body awareness, strength, cardio vascular health, all while enjoying the process. Past participants have returned to work, their sport, prevented falls, stopped using their cane or walker, postponed surgeries, rehabbed from surgeries, and improved the quality of life.
Monday – Friday. Lesson times are individually scheduled based on client’s preference in coordination with lane availability.
We recommend booking a private lesson prior to participating in the Aquatic Wellness Basic class, as, classes are taught to address the experienced student, and a new student may need some support. A private lesson will bridge the gap; teach you proper technique, while assessing what skills you need to move forward with confidence and independence.
