THE GENTLE POWER OF WATER
Our area of expertise is clinical hydrotherapy
the body in ways almost impossible on land
THIS IS AQUATIC BODYWORK

Our hydrotherapists have extensive international training and over 15 years of clinical experience, pioneering specialised techniques in South Africa.

In the warm, supportive environment of water, people of all shapes, sizes, age groups and physical abilities can exercise, relax and enjoy the physical, emotional, psychological and energetic benefits of Aquatic bodywork.

WHAT IS THIS FOR?

Hydrotherapy has evolved over the years to be considered a comprehensive intervention for the recovery, maintenance, pre-hab, or re-hab of a number of conditions. Aquatic bodywork® is particularly effective for:

Pain Management
Post-surgical Rehabilitation
Joint Disorders & Injuries
Stroke Recovery
Palliative Care
Fibromyalgia
Pediatric Conditions

Acute, transient and chronic / neuropathic pain conditions 

Shoulder, hip, knee, ankle surgery / arthroplasty / replacement

  • Shoulder and arm conditions 
  • Spinal column conditions 
  • Pelvic girdle conditions 
  • Knee and ankle conditions 

Stroke recovery

Palliative care

Fibromyalgia, rheumatic and connective tissue disorder and injuries 

Pediatric conditions that present low/high muscle tone and delays in achieving developmental milestones. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The session is one-one in a private, indoor, heated hydrotherapy pool.

The hydrotherapist is in the water with the patient throughout the treatment. She applies a combination of active and passive techniques that are tailored to your needs and limits.

The session typically lasts for one hour. The first half is active (exercise and stretches) and the second half is passive – where you are usually floated on their back using special floatation devices under the head and legs, and do absolutely nothing. This puts the body into a neutral position and allows the therapist three-dimensional access to the whole body so that bodywork can be applied.

Benefits are usually seen from the first session. The frequency of sessions is tailored to each patient. You don’t need to be able to swim.

VIRTUAL TOUR

A little nervous, not sure what to expect?  Relax and enjoy our virtual tour of our Hydrotherapy Studio, or contact us to book your consultation.

What you need to know

You do absolutely nothing

Your nose and mouth are kept above water (unless you choose an underwater session).
Sessions are one-to-one and last one hour. Water is heated to 33-36C. Bring only your swimsuit.

A caring person who is incredibly passionate about what she does. The facility is 5 star, clean need and warm. The therapy session soft yet firm, Maria knows where and when to apply pressure.For somebody who carries a number of sport injuries this was a revelation and I will definitely be back. Highly recommended.read more

A really great form of body therapy. After my active stretching, holding onto the bars in the water, Maria did the bodywork whilst I was floating peacefully on my back on top of the water. She certainly knew what she was doing as she attended to my back pain. I felt the benefits immediately after the session, and I will certainly go back again.read more
