Aquatic therapy is a specialized service of individualized therapy between a practitioner and a client in a heated body of water. The 1:1 therapy session involves a practitioner guiding the client through a series of gentle twists, stretches, and movements. The therapy takes place in 96-degree warm water, simulating the same temperature as the skin. The combination of warm water and movement produces a calming state for the mind and body.
