What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy [aquatic exercise therapy] is a form of physiotherapy treatment involving exercise in a heated pool. Aquatic exercises can help injury recovery, rehabilitation and fitness training.

The warm water supports the body, improves stability, provides resistance for strength training, promotes circulation, helps muscle relaxation and decreases pain.
