Aquatic Activity for Health

Aquatic Activity for Health

We will be running a 6 week, water-based physical activity programme designed for individuals with mild to moderate health conditions on behalf of Epping Forest District Council. The key objectives are to provide a high quality, safe and effective aqua based referral service to the Epping Forest District community.

Water-based exercise can help people with chronic diseases in a variety of different ways. The upward force, called buoyancy, helps to take pressure off of the joints. This transforms normal movement into smoother actions, keeping it low impact. The water resistance also enhances body awareness, which can assist with maintaining proper posture and a sense of movement within space during activity.

There are a range of exercise options, nutritional advice and ongoing support available, along with an exit strategy that allows individuals to continue enjoying the long term health benefits of being physically active.

Benefits of the scheme
  • Ongoing support with our fully qualified Institute of Swimming Level 4 Instructors, in line with the latest industry developments.
  • Improve your health and wellbeing
  • Reduce pain
  • Meet new friends
  • Access to a support network
