Hydrotherapy is beneficial for those with a disability whether permanent or temporary, mental, or physical. It has so many benefits for by a wide spectrum of people; those with a disability or disabilities, those recovering from injury, those with mobility issues or those who have problems with movement. It is gentle movement or exercise in a warm water pool which helps to improve muscle function, can improve balance, and help ease aches and pains and encourage relaxation. The warmth at 33 degrees, allows tight muscles and tendons to relax and permits stretching of joints and limbs. It also relieves chronic pain, and the exercise improves cardiovascular and respiratory function. The weightlessness and support of the water allows freedom of movement to paralysed limbs and provides a force against which to exercise, to maintain muscle strength and tone.Make a booking
