How Does Hydotherapy Work? When the body is immersed in water, a certain level of buoyancy is achieved, making movement of weakened muscles or inflamed joints easier, safer, and less painful.

Hydrotherapy has long been recognized as one of the most effective forms of rehabilitation for a variety of physical conditions. People who have difficulty with land-based exercise, whether due to injury, surgery or disease, can normally start therapy earlier and often with significantly less discomfort.
The buoyancy, viscosity and thermal capacity of warm water allow for a low stress, environment in which to begin rehabilitation. The benefits that can be achieved are improved range of motion, increased flexibility, enhanced strengthening and activity tolerance, reduced swelling and improved balance and coordination.
Our pool is heated to the therapeutic temperature of 88 – 90 degrees F allowing you to move easier and without discomfort. We offer hydrotherapy in both one-on-one and class environments to suit your needs and comfort level.
