Our Occupational therapists are trained and certified Aquatic Therapy practitioners. We greatly enjoy and look forward to our aquatic therapy sessions since water is fun and at the same time hugely beneficial therapeutically.

We have an Aquatic Therapy program for both Adults as well as Children.

What sets aquatic therapy apart from traditional therapy is that the water – which in itself is known for restorative and healing properties – provides:
  • A sensory rich environment (sensory input through touch and pressure exerted from all sides on the body, body position and movement)
  • Counteracts the force of gravity and helps with reduced weight bearing and increased movement
  • Helps the body to stay afloat, which causes relaxation and movement in a multi-dimensional plane.
  • Provides natural resistance to movement and helps build strength and endurance.
  • Increases respiratory capacity and oxygen uptake.
  • Has a relaxing effect on joints, muscles and ligaments and helps with relaxation of tight muscles, flexibility and range of movement.
  • Alleviates pain.
  • Serves as a wonderful leisure skill.
  • Kids with significant movement restrictions on land can be independent and ambulatory in water. Therefore, water helps with increased independence and self-confidence.
  • Aquatic Group therapy sessions serve as a great way to build social and play skills.

The best part is that a child or an adult, you don’t have to know swimming, to take part in an aquatic therapy program. In fact, aquatic therapy helps to decrease anxiety related to water and builds up on pre-swimming skills.

We use Aquatic Therapy to impact functioning in the children’s everyday life. If you would like to use Aquatic Therapy as a modality, please get in touch with us at 9769611844 or email us at reach_tcfc@gmail.com
