Aquatic Therapy and Hydrotherapy from a provider you can trust.

Our Aquatic Therapy services are offered at the ultra-modern facilities at King George V Glenorchy and the Launceston Aquatic Centre. Hydrotherapy, also known as Aquatic Physiotherapy, is a form of physiotherapy conducted in a heated pool. Aquatic Physiotherapy can help develop strength, balance, coordination and improve general fitness as well as relieve pain, promote relaxation, and mobilise joints.

  • The pools offer change rooms, pools hoists, and exercise equipment
  • All staff are trained in First Aid, Life Support and Hydrotherapy Pool Rescue
  • We welcome referrals from GPs, Physiotherapists, other Allied Health Professionals
  • Clients can utilise a range of funding for programs
  • Most clients will need at least 2 sessions with the Aquatic Physiotherapist
  • The Hydrotherapy Pools are heated between 30-35° Celsius which is optimal to achieve the many benefits that this therapeutic approach can offer, such as:
    • Gravity is countered by buoyancy.
    • Increased muscle strength and endurance due to the greater resistance in water.
    • Improvement in swelling, due to hydrostatic pressure.
    • Enhanced balance and stabilization.
    • Improved enjoyment and confidence to move better.
    • Muscular relaxation and decreased muscle spasm.
    • Decreased pain due to warmth and support.

NDIS Support Coordination

If you are eligible for the NDIS, it may take several months for your funding and Plan to be approved. StGiles can assist you with NDIS plan co-ordination and management (including some or all of the funding including financial, legal and administrative requirements).
