Benefits of Hydrotherapy

Officially Hydrotherapy is defined as the treatment of physical disability, injury, or illness by immersion of all or part of the body in water to facilitate movement, promote wound healing and relieve pain. (Source:

Over the years Hydrilla has constructed many hydrotherapy facilities, from large clinical hydrotherapy pools in hospitals, through to smaller facilities which provide treatment options for just one client and therapist. We understand the complexity of these types of systems, which generally require higher levels of disinfection and sanitation than other commercial pools and aquatic systems. We’ve developed a passion for helping people access aquatic therapy no matter where they are. We are constantly looking for new solutions which will allow more people to access the physical and mental benefits of hydrotherapy.

Hydrotherapy can be used to treat many chronic conditions and including:  Acne; Arthritis, Colds, Depression and Mental Health, Headaches, Stomach problems, Joint, Muscle and Nerve problems and Sleep disorders. The Australian Physiotherapy Association has some great articles and resources on how Hydrotherapy or ‘Aquatic Physiotherapy’ can make a difference to our health and wellbeing.
