We offer gym based group and individual programs and one on one hydrotherapy sessions.

“No single intervention has greater promise than exercise to reduce the risk of virtually all chronic diseases simultaneously…”Booth et al. Journal Applied Physiology 2000
Specialising in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and aged care, NAH hydrotherapy is run by our Accredited Exercise Physiologists at various sites across QLD and NSW, including Aged Care Facilities and Gymnasiums. Hydrotherapy is water based exercise in a heated pool to aid in rehabilitation and recovery for the management of muscular injuries and joint pain. Extremely effective for arthritis and adherence to exercise programs as it eliminates gravity generally making full range of motion possible enabling the person to perform activities they would normally have difficulty with and gives joints a welcomed break while the heated water acts as therapy for the injury. The water can also be used as a form of resistance to aid in strength ranging from very light intensity to vigorous with the use of pool aids like noodles and other floatation devices.
