Hydrotherapy: water-based exercise programme

Hydrotherapy (water therapy) sessions are run in AUT's own hydrotherapy pool at the North Campus.  Our hydrotherapy group sessions are run for people with neurological conditions who may benefit from this low impact environment.

What to expect

Before you begin hydrotherapy, we will meet you in our AIH clinic to assess your needs.  If hydrotherapy is a suitable option for you we will create a set of exercises personalised to you.  At each hydrotherapy pool session, you'll complete your individualised exercises using pool equipment like floats and boards.  Your group is closely supervised during the entire session and you will receive the level of assistance in the pool that is suitable to your individual needs.

Programme aims

Hydrotherapy aims to improve your strength and flexibility with a range of exercises in a low impact environment (water).

Staff

The programme is delivered by AUT physiotherapists and students and may also include supervisors and students from podiatry, occupational therapy and nursing.
