THE MEDICINAL USE OF WATER

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy for Cancer Recovery

Hydrotherapy is the medicinal use of water to restore or improve health and fitness. We offer weekly classes in collaboration with a local pool in Bondi Beach. The classes take place every Monday (except on public holidays) at 10 am for 45 minutes. With a maximum of 6-8 people, these classes are kept small to be able to consider the individual needs of each participant.

All participants will be screened by a physiotherapist prior to joining to ensure the classes are suitable for you. Apart from the physical benefits, these classes offer social support in a safe and fun environment.

FAQ's

We (and your medical team) would advise you to finish your chemotherapy and radiation treatment before you get into a pool. This is mainly to avoid the risk of infection, as your immune system is compromised.

Once you have the green light from your doctors, you can join us in the pool.

Our classes are kept to a maximum of 6 people to ensure we can provide individualised support and keep a good eye on you in the pool.

No.

We often have people in our classes who can’t swim. This is not a problem as you will be standing in the pool immersed in water up to your chest and won’t be required to swim.

All exercises will be performed either in standing or holding to a flotation device or the wall.

Please do inform your trainer at the time of your booking about any concerns you may have.
