Hydrotherapy

Opened in July 2011, Waterworld’s Hydrotherapy pool is one of the facility’s key assets.

Funded through a partnership between the Hydrotherapy Pool Trust and Hamilton City Council, the Hydrotherapy pool is the only pool of its kind in Hamilton.

The pool’s warmer temperature – between 33 and 35 degrees – makes it ideal for customers who are rehabilitating from illness or injury, or who face challenges with their mobility and well-being.

Water set at a steady temperature of 33-35 degrees Celsius:

  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Relaxes stiff muscles
  • Helps damaged joints move better
  • Strengthens muscles
  • Improves blood flow
  • Improves balance and co-ordination

Because of the comfort and relaxation hot water gives you, Hydrotherapy benefits a lot of different people, including children and babies.

Hydrotherapy pools are used by:

  • Families with children who have disabilities
  • Groups of special needs children
  • Mothers/Parents  ( Babies 6Mths to 1 Yr, Ratio 1:1

  • People of all ages with a range of long-term disabilities
  • Groups of adults doing a variety of exercise programmes
  • Sports people regaining fitness after injury
