How can this help you?
- Reduce pain and safely manage your injury
- Correct poor mechanics that underlie injuries
- Greater resistance to injury
- Training your muscle groups to help your body to work safely and more efficiently
- An overall feeling of physical wellbeing, with improved posture, balance and motor control.
Our Physiotherapists are all trained in and use the dma Clinical Pilates™ method.
This form of Clinical Pilates is treatment our Physiotherapists mainly use for rehabilitation, chronic pain management and functional improvement.
Initially done one on one with our Physiotherapists, they may suggest to attend group sessions (typically maximum of 3 attendants) depending on your needs (currently limited due to Corona virus restrictions).
As the name suggests rehabilitation is carried out in water heated to a constant 34 degrees Celsius with our physiotherapists. This services is currently on hold due to limited access to pool facilities owing to Corona virus. May re-commence in 2023.
The aim is to assist with the rehabilitation of the individual.
In some cases it will also assist in maintaining the client’s level of function or prevent deterioration or prevent injury.
Aquatic physiotherapy may involve individual treatment in a one to one situation or may be undertaken in groups. Aquatic physiotherapy is a great way of progressing rehabilitation and promoting independence, there may be limited access to an appropriate pool or pool sessions by both the client and the physiotherapist.
What is floating?
Floating also known as sensory deprivation, offers a warm and welcoming environment where you can focus on you.
Floating occurs in a floatation pod, or isolation tank, which is a cocoon like structure built using the best quality fiberglass and plastics with a door which can be shut or kept open during the float session.
On the inside, you will find an inviting, softly lit up tub (using LED lights) of 30cm deep water kept at a constant 35°Celsius. The water containing Epsom salts will hold your body off the floor of the tank floating with no floating equipment. When floating, you can shut off the lights, close your eyes and enjoy the floating experience where the time is purely yours.
The float tank is both sound and light proof, and provides your brain the opportunity to disconnect from the constant bombardment of sensory input and enhance your ability to be mindful and present. The experience leaves you feeling deeply relaxed and re-invigorated as we facilitate replenishing your energy levels. There is simply no other technology or environment that can stimulate these basic human needs, rest and isolation.
