Most Halliwick therapy is active dynamic to facilitate movement and sensory input. Frees the spinal vertebrae Rotates joint articulations Elongates muscles All of the above benefits are simply not possible with land exercise.

There are several precautions you need to consider before participating the thermal aquatic bodywork: This reaction is thought to: The mechanical advantages of water support the abilities of the trunk in a mobilising and stabilising way.

Halliwick Aquatic Therapy has mainly used in neurorehabilitation and pediatrics. The second part of the concept, Halliwick Halljwick Therapy also known as Water Specific Therapy, WSTapplies the fundamental biophysical principles and the underlying principles of the Ten-Point-Programme for planning and implementing patient-specific aquatic therapy.

Alcohol and smoking are prohibited during activities. Decreased heart rate Decreased rate of respiration Increased depth of respiration Increased peripheral vasodilatation Increased smooth muscle activity digestion Decreased activation of striated muscles skeletal Decreased spasticity Decreased muscle spasm Decreased reticular activating system RAS activity Enhanced immune system response.

In this sense Halliwick is a constraint-induced movement therapy without the disadvantage of gravity compensation.

Halliwick also enables a graded activity program: Aquatic Therapy Exercises, founded by the late James McMillan The Halliwick concept originally developed to teach people with physical disability to swim and make them independent in water.
