AQUATHERAPY INFORMATION & FEES
BENEFITS OF AQUATHERAPY
Aquatherapy can be beneficial for individuals managing arthritis, whiplash, inflammation, chronic pain or difficulty weight bearing. Water pressure and buoyancy can help reduce inflammation in joints, reduce the speed of pain signals and reduce loads on joints in the legs and back. Movement can become easier with less load through the joints. Balance can be challenged safely and gait patterns can be corrected in the water. Water also provides gentle resistance in every direction of movement, so strength and stability are continually being challenged.
The pool at the Victoria Athletic Club is a bright, clean, 25-meter, shallow water pool that is often much quieter than a public recreation centre.
An initial assessment in the studio is required prior to starting aquatherapy sessions. Click here for information about assessments.
Private Aquatherapy programs will be introduced over 2-4 sessions and can be monitored on a weekly basis or reassessed and progressed every 4-12 weeks as needed. The hot tub at this location will also help to relax tired muscles after your session. Your private Kinesiology session at the Victoria Athletic Club also allows you access to the club (gym, classes or pool) for the rest of that day, so if you wish to return later that day independently, you can do so.
Contact Anna-Marie to ask about availability for private sessions.

Small Group Sessions:
These registered small group offerings are 55 minutes once per week and sessions are two months in length (usually 8-9 weeks). The groups have a ratio of 4-6 clients to one instructor. Each individual will have an personalized program created specifically for them based on their needs, abilities and goals and will complete their program semi-independently while in the group. The Kinesiologist is present to coach, instruct, correct, progress or alter programs as needed. A private initial assessment is required prior to starting in the group to allow for the individualized program to be created.
Prices include towel and locker service and access to the club for the entire day. Three-hour parking is available for a nominal fee.
