Hydrotherapy involves the use of water for pain relief and treatment. The term encompasses a broad range of approaches and therapeutic methods that take advantage of the physical properties of water, such as temperature and pressure, for therapeutic purposes, to stimulate blood circulation and treat the symptoms of certain diseases.
By providing all the basic therapies plus more unconventional therapies and therapies completely new to Zambia all under one roof, the centre aims to be able to treat people with a variety of different disabilities without the need to travel from one place to another.
The Centre’s extensive network allows you to book therapies not specifically provided at the centre and they will organise this for you, bring the therapists to you instead of you travelling to them. They arrange visits from nutritionists, counsellors, neuro therapists and many more.
