Musical Hydrotherapy training
Musical Hydrotherapy is an innovative therapy combining listening to sound inside the water alongside aquatic body therapy techniques to
relax body and mind
inspire movement, stretching, vocalisation and stillness
develop an appreciation to sound and music.
How it works
Underwater speakers are placed inside a hydro-pool and specially created underwater music/sound is heard when the head is placed in the water. The vibrations travel through the water and stimulate the inner ear directly, resulting in a perception of sound that is incredibly detailed, immediate and personal. The vibrations can also be felt in the body, and when experienced alongside guided movement through aquatic body therapy, participants experience a deeper state of relaxation. The practice can also help to improve communication, emotional development and motor and sensory skills.
The training for practitioners is very practical and skills-based, covering how to work in the water to support people with a variety of disabilities, from severely movement-challenged individuals to hyperactive people who are more anxious about physical contact in the pool.
