Hydrotherapy exercises are a series of gentle stretching movements, upper and lower body strengthening and cardiac conditioning performed in a pool maintained at between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius. Properly used, hydrotherapy can facilitate rehabilitation of muscle and joint injuries as well as assisting in post-operative pain relief.
Hydrotherapy is a safe and fun way for people regardless of age or condition to exercise, whether it is for fitness or overall well-being.
Hydrotherapy provides enormous benefits to people with a range of conditions or illnesses including:
- Joint replacements
- Back pain
- Sports injuries

- Strengthened muscles
- Pain relief
- Increased mobility
- Stress reduction

Novita Health currently runs hydrotherapy classes Monday to Saturday. All of our classes are run by qualified physiotherapists. Classes are limited to 8 people per session so that the physiotherapists can assist each person individually.
We also provide individual one on one training and set up programs for self-management, or a combination of one on one, pairs and classes.
