The Importance of Hydrotherapy
Swimming is a recreational activity enjoyed by so many, but for people living with disabilities, access to a therapeutic pool provides more than a leisurely pastime, it is a truly life-changing experience. Individuals with physical disabilities are 30% more likely to see their health deteriorate due to lack of movement and exercise. For years, KCC clients were transported to hydrotherapy pools in Toronto and witnessed magic unfold as the children responded to each hydrotherapy session with shrieks of joy as if they were enjoying the freedom of moving independently for the very first time. Bringing a state of the art Hydrotherapy Centre to Vaughan has been a labour of love, knowing that an entire community of people with disabilities will have access to this highly specialized, centre of excellence.
