What is Aquatic Therapy?
It’s a therapy that is hands-on based and utilizes anti-gravity treatment produced by a therapeutic pool. When the body is outside of the water, it has limited range of motion. When using aquatic massage therapy you have a larger range of motion, thus being more of a benefit for the client.
Taking advantage of the therapeutic pool, the client is able to complete a set of stretches without any impact on their joints or muscle pain. During the treatment clients are in a floating position on their back and the water massages them. Aquatic massages in the water benefit the client by use of a pool noodle to keep them afloat at one end. The therapist holds the other end, allowing the client to have more support.
