Heated Salt Water Therapy Pool
Private and Personal
Every child that participates in our pool therapy sessions receives care from at least one professional, if not two. This creates a safe atmosphere that is hands-on and productive. The water itself is 3 1/2 – 4 feet deep, which is an optimal depth for steering around the pool and thus increasing mobilization for your child. This way, your child can get a fully helpful experience in the water.
Heated Saltwater Effects
The Aqua Therapy Pool is an amazing place for therapy. Its weightlessness allows children to perform physical tasks that they couldn’t, or would have a tough time with, on land. The heated water (93 degrees fahrenheit) especially contributes to the process as well. It’s warm enough to relax the muscles and allow for serious balance and motor skills practice. The art of swimming and moving in water allows for full body cohesion and awareness, allowing your child to become aware of all of his body’s capabilities. By doing this, your child will gain physical abilities out of the water to help in everyday life.
A Hoyer lift is available for those unable to take the stairs. Parents/caregivers may observe from within or through the large observation window. Typical pool equipment as well as games and age appropriate toys are available to enhance outcomes and overall engagement depending on specific client needs.
Two private changing rooms enter into the pool room. Both changing rooms are handicapped accessible equipped with grab bars, shower chair, and height adjustable showerhead. Changing tables are located in each room as well. The open floor plan allows ample space for strollers or wheelchairs. Towels are provided.
