Aquatic Therapy

Our warm salt water pool provides many therapeutic benefits. The constant deep pressure of the pool provides a calming effect and decreases tactile defensiveness. The hydrostatic pressure reduces edema and provides a motivating and effective environment to improve respiratory capacity. The bouyancy and viscocity of the salt water pool decreases the motor demand for fine and gross motor skills, increasing their ability to master skills that may be difficult on land. The pool setting allows for functional practice of activities of daily living including; showering/bathing, dressing, and hair brushing.
