Hydrotherapy is exercise in the water. It is a gentle and effective way to build strength, improve cardiovascular health, and manage pain. The buoyancy of the water will allow for decreased impact on your joints and a safe and supportive environment for you to exercise.


Hydro sessions with Connect

Our Hydrotherapy sessions can be designed to challenge and invigorate you or promote relaxation and recovery. Depending on your individual goals and needs, sessions may include a combination of strength-building exercises, balance drills, and cardiovascular conditioning. If you have difficulty with exercise due to pain, poor mobility or balance then hydrotherapy is a great option for you to keep active.


All hydrotherapy sessions are run by an accredited exercise physiologist from the Palmwoods Aquatic Centre. We accept referrals and funding for these sessions, including:


  • Medicare
  • DVA
  • NDIS
  • Workcover
  • Aged Care funding

The Benefits of Hydro

Pain Relief: The buoyancy of water reduces the stress on joints and muscles, making movement less painful. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with arthritis, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain.

Improved Circulation: Warm water can help dilate blood vessels, improving blood flow and reducing blood pressure.

Muscle Relaxation: The warmth and buoyancy of the water help relax muscles and reduce muscle spasms, which can be helpful for those with muscle injuries or tightness.

Rehabilitation: Hydrotherapy is often used in rehabilitation programs for injuries, surgeries, and conditions such as stroke. The resistance of the water helps build strength without putting undue stress on the body.

Increased Mobility and Flexibility: Water supports the body and allows for a greater range of motion.

Enhanced Balance and Coordination: The resistance of the water helps improve balance and coordination, which can be especially beneficial for older adults or individuals recovering from neurological conditions.

Cardiovascular Fitness: Aquatic exercises can improve cardiovascular health by increasing heart rate and promoting overall cardiovascular endurance without the impact on joints that land-based exercises might have.

Stress Reduction: The calming effect of water can help reduce stress and anxiety. Warm water can have a soothing effect on the nervous system.

Improved Mood: Engaging in water activities can release endorphins, the body’s natural mood lifters, which can help alleviate symptoms of depression and improve overall mood.

Mindfulness and Relaxation: The rhythmic nature of water and the focus required for aquatic exercises can promote mindfulness and a sense of relaxation.
