Hydrotherapy Sessions

Hydrotherapy entails whole body exercises which take place in a warm water pool. It allows your muscles to relax and eases pain and stiffness, making it easier to exercise. This great exercise is suitable for people with limited mobility, post operative rehabilitation, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and conditions that result in limited mobility.  Starting this Thursday 12th January 2012, 7pm in the Watershed, the cost is €10 per session.
