Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy is a program that guides children gradually to sensations and movements in the water and takes on the form of a mobility lesson. It aims at:

  • Familiarization and mental adaptation to the water
  • Changing the mobility behavior to achieve balance and
  • Acquiring the ability to move independently in the water


The whole effort culminates in independent swimming

We strive to familiarize children with water, to make them feel confident when in the water.  The therapy includes songs and games which incorporate therapeutic objectives.

Moreover, water is very forgiving and has a soothing effect, which is beneficial for children’s physical development. At the same time, it activates the senses while encouraging socialization and improving children’s social, emotional and cognitive development.

This intervention also plays a major role for infants, helping them on various levels - mental, motor and sensory. Aquatic Therapy for Infants is a program which enables approaching infants in the liquid medium with which they are still familiar. The Program is applied in an interactive joyful environment promoting safety and acceptance.
