It is recommended to have first a standard session before an aquatic session in order to ensure that no problems will appear in hot water for the greater safety of the patient.
The session lasts an average of 30 to 40 minutes in water (1 hour total).
The swimming pool in which the session is conducted is subject to strict hygiene standards. Therefore, the day of the appointment, you will be asked to take a shower before going in the pool. Shoes must be removed at the entrance of the room.
The following personal items are required:
– shower gel
– ear plugs (if the patient needs it. We recommend it however)
– rubber band for people with long hair (which can be attached)
