Offer an AquaDance Class!
"The best thing about hydrotherapy is that anyone can do it," says Jaeson Kawadler, a senior physical therapist at Brigham and Womenís Hospital specializing in biomechanics, orthopedic injuries, and aquatic therapy. ďAll you need is a pool of water and a splash of fun.Ē
Most aquatic sessions take place with the water at chest level. You donít have to know how to swim. You donít even have to get your hair wet to realize the benefits of this positive approach to fitness and health.
An easy, yet effective class to offer is AquaDance. The water acts as a support system, making it fun and easy while it provides just enough resistance for a great workout.
