What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists are highly qualified health professionals who work in partnership with their patients to help people get better and stay well.
Physiotherapists also work closely with GPs and other health clinicians to plan and manage treatment. GPs refer more patients to physiotherapists than any other healthcare profession.
Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care, physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.
Physiotherapy helps repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life.
Physiotherapy extends from health promotion to injury prevention, acute care, rehabilitation, maintenance of functional mobility, chronic disease management, patient and carer education and occupational health.

What is Aquatic physiotherapy (hydrotherapy)?
As the name suggests rehabilitation is carried out in water heated to a constant 34 degrees Celsius with our physiotherapists.
The aim is to assist with the rehabilitation of the individual. Aquatic physiotherapy is a great way of progressing rehabilitation and promoting independence.
In some cases it will also assist in maintaining the client’s level of function or prevent deterioration or prevent injury.
Aquatic physiotherapy may involve individual treatment in a one to one situation or may be undertaken in groups. Consult with the physiotherapist to determine what is best for you.
What is floating?
Floating also known as sensory deprivation, offers a warm and welcoming environment where you can focus on you.
Floating occurs in a floatation pod, or isolation tank, which is a cocoon like structure built using the best quality fiberglass and plastics with a door which can be shut or kept open during the float session.
On the inside, you will find an inviting, softly lit up tub (using LED lights) of 30cm deep water kept at a constant 35°Celsius. The water containing Epsom salts will hold your body off the floor of the tank floating with no floating equipment. When floating, you can shut off the lights, close your eyes and enjoy the floating experience where the time is purely yours.
The float tank is both sound and light proof, and provides your brain the opportunity to disconnect from the constant bombardment of sensory input and enhance your ability to be mindful and present. The experience leaves you feeling deeply relaxed and re-invigorated as we facilitate replenishing your energy levels. There is simply no other technology or environment that can stimulate these basic human needs, rest and isolation.
