Aquatic therapy

Our aquatic therapy program offers a state-of-the-art, 81,000-gallon warm water pool equipped with the most modern technology. We offer individual and group sessions. Clients benefit from training to increase strength, endurance, balance and range of motion and move on to community-based water exercise classes or traditional therapies.
