Hydrotherapy and Aquafit

treating mobility issues and chronic pain

Hydrotherapy at West Park

Aquafit is back!

Registration and classes start January 16, 2023 and run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 4:30pm, 5:15pm and 6:00pm. Call 416-243-3778 for more information.

Warm-Pool Aquafit classes are offered for the management of chronic pain and overall health. With a small group size, classes are ideal for helping to manage various types of pain, muscle soreness and spasms, and to strengthen postural muscles and lengthen overused muscles.

Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy provided in the West Park warm-pool. 

Both are ideal for those with mobility issues, as water allows for movement in many different directions, which may not be possible on land for people with chronic pain.

Swimming ability is not necessary for both classes and participants will receive the therapeutic benefits of heat because the pool is heated to a constant temperature of 34 degrees Celsius.
