Our hydrotherapy pool is fully accessible with mechanical hoists to support students transitioning in and out of the pool. 

The pool is heated to a comfortable 32 degrees allowing students to participate in individual and small group therapy sessions

  • Increasing aerobic capacity

  • Exercising without pain or restricted movement
