Highly recommended for children with ASD
Our team uses the pool water at our Centre to provide complementary physiotherapy sessions for children with disabilities.
Why do we provide Hydrotherapy?
- Creating bonds
During the hydrotherapy sessions, children will interact densely with the therapist, this enhances the child’s social skills. This kind of therapy is strongly recommended for ASD children.
- Water resistance
While water surrounds the child’s full body, it causes deep and heavy pressure. Children start to try different movements to face the pressure.
- Water temperature
In order to minimize the spasticity and muscle tone, the pool water should be warm enough to cause relaxation in the neuromuscular junctions. Then miracles can happen!
- Great sensory stimulation
warm water and pressure can stimulate the children to relax and focus. This can help them to start behaving in a balanced and organized way. And out of the pool, hydrotherapy encourages children to reduce or stop repetitive behaviors and sounds.
