Physiotherapy & Exercise

Hydrotherapy Aqua Classes:

Hydrotherapy uses the properties of warm water to facilitate movement and to enhance therapeutic effects. As water reduces stress on painful soft tissues and joints it is an excellent medium for controlled exercise for treatment and for fitness programs.
