Hydrotherapy pool

Our hydrotherapy pool at Ravenswood, is fully accessible. It has a range of hoists and adapted equipment and there is a specialised sensory lighting system to engage and stimulate swimmers.

Special facilities at hydrotherapy pool

The warmth of the hydrotherapy pool improves people’s physical wellbeing:

  • Increasing circulation
  • Reducing muscle spasm
  • Helping to relieve pain.

An aquatic program can also help the psychosocial wellbeing of a person with a disability. Learning to enjoy the water and to move about without assistance can enhance their self-esteem and self-awareness. A sense of wellbeing and freedom can lead to a temporary release from tension and stress, both of which sometimes increase the negative impact of physical disabilities.


The pool is used by people supported by Norwood and other members of the wider community. Swimmers can take part in timetabled sessions, including:

  • Movement & relaxation
  • Yoga & Tai Chi
  • Water games.

It is also possible to hire the pool either for sole use or for use by a group.
