Therapy pool accessible by ramp; heated at 34°C (94°F) and has a shallow end depth of zero sloping to four feet (aquatic wheelchairs are available for moving from change rooms into therapy pool.)

Aquatic Fitness Benefits Water Resistance - Using the resistance of water in exercise is like exercising with weights or machines on land but safer. Buoyancy - Approximately 90% of your body weight is buoyant; you are bearing only 10% of your weight when exercising in chest deep water, which reduces stress on your joints and muscles. Social - Social connections have proven health benefits. Stress Relief - The soothing comfort of the water aids alleviates mental and emotional stresses. Fun - The aquatic environment and facility atmosphere make it a great place to laugh & have fun while doing something great for your mind and body. Cooling Effect - With continuous movement in cool water your body won’t overheat. Therapeutic - Exercise in water safely enables and assists you in the recovery from injury, surgery and illness. It also helps to combat the aging process and has amazing mental therapeutic value. There are many aquatic fitness aids to maximize the effect of exercise, including removable stairs and an aquatic lift into the main pool, aquatic wheelchairs to help navigate the ramp into the therapy teach pool. There are also massaging jets available in the therapy pool.
