Hydrotherapy is the art of water treatment, includes orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation for children, swimming lessons, and groups treatment.

One of the methods of treatment is Watsu. this type of treatment is a Shiatsu style therapy in water. Watsu promotes the idea that human care is connected with the inner feeling, therefore to calm a patient down makes for a better treatment. The pracicioner should be able to feel the needs of the patient during treatment, bringing a state of relaxation and calmness of mind.

All lecturers such as the pediatrician, the psychologist and the occupational therapist.are highly experienced in their field, with professional experience in treatment for many years.
