The benefits of hydrotherapy include:

  • activity in water puts less strain on joints as the body’s weight is supported
  • increasing blood flow, and therefore oxygen, to the body’s organs, muscles and skin so promoting healing.
  • promoting good circulation to improve lymph drainage (an immune system fluid that helps collect and get rid of unwanted materials from the body) and therefore strengthens the immune system, helping to fight colds and illnesses
  • relaxing muscles, easing stiffness, swelling, muscle spasm and acting as a pain reliever on sore joints, muscles and aching backs
  • promotion of relaxation
  • exercising in water can strengthen muscles and increase the range of motion of affected joints
