Hydrotherapy Classes Brisbane
A therapeutic treatment program to relieve discomfort and promote physical wellbeing
Who are the classes for?
Hydrotherapy classes are a great way for people with existing injuries or conditions that are aggravated by weight-bearing exercises.
They are also a great option for people who experience discomfort when exercising on hard surfaces and want to enjoy something different.
What do the classes involve?
Hydrotherapy is a form of physiotherapy and is held in a heated pool by a qualified physiotherapist.
Group and individual sessions are held in a hydrotherapy accredited pool, which is maintained at 32°C. This is the ideal therapeutic temperature for treatment and rehabilitation of injuries.
The activities will be tailored to each person’s ability. Activities may include:
- gentle stretching
- upper and lower limb resistance
- exercises to improve range of motion in joints
- water walking
- balance and coordination exercises
All equipment is supplied. Please wear your swimwear and bring a towel, water bottle, non-slip footwear, swimming cap (optional) and any other personal grooming needs for after the session. Please don’t bring valuables into the pool area.

Hands-on, pool-based treatment and specifically designed exercises promote physical well-being in a warm relaxing environment.
