What is hydrotherapy?

Different to aerobics or swimming; Hydrotherapy, or aquatic therapy is a form of exercise, performed in a specialised heated pool between 31-36 degrees. The water provides a safe and buoyant environment, making movements easier and more comfortable. The guided exercise programs, developed through Revitalize Exercise Physiology + Pilates focus on each individuals goals and abilities.
