Hydrotherapy is usually a pool exercise programme devised or recommended by a Physiotherapist, but mostly self-managed.  We have an on-site,  modern purpose-built, warm (35-36 degrees Celsius), 11 X 7 metre pool,  varying in depth from 1.2 to 1.5  metres, so enabling a large range of exercises to be performed.

Pool Design

Steps-webThe pool has shallow steps with rails to assist entrance and exit. There is also a rail all the way around the pool to allow a firm hand-hold if needed for exercise, or for non swimmers’ security. The pool has a “wet deck” to reduce wave formation and facilitate entrance and exit.

Spa Facility

spa-FacilityIn the shallow end of the pool there are six jet-adjustable spa seats, so there is no difficult climbing into the deep separate spa. This allows for muscle relaxation with the massage of the warm water jets.


Pool Equipment

hoist2We have a hoist for people who cannot use the pool steps.A variety of floats and buoyancy aids are available to be used to support, assist or resist movement.


Changing Rooms

Changing-RoomsThere are three changing rooms, one female, one male, and one disabled (for people in wheelchairs, or where carers may assist if a client needs help with dressing). Each has its own toilet and shower facilities. There is also a poolside shower.
