Aqua therapy, also called hydrotherapy, is a physiotherapy method in the water. From October 2017, Synergy Texel will offer this type of therapy in our new practice in Den Burg. In the water, gravity has less grip, making movement easier. We also offer Aqua Aerobics.
Aqua therapy is a safe way of moving without straining the joints. At Synergy Texel you train under the guidance of a physiotherapist one-to-one or in a small group. The training takes place in a heated swimming pool, where everyone works on their personal goals.
How does aqua therapy work?
Aqua therapy utilizes aqua fitness equipment and flotation aids. Under guidance you perform exercises that provide more power, stability, balance and mobility. A combination of exercise therapy, circulation training and recreation helps you achieve more results with less effort and pain.
