Musical hydrotherapy is coming to Perth this January!



Liquid Vibrations is a UK charity established in 2010, which aims to improve the well-being, health and musical development of children and adults with complex and special needs through Musical Hydrotherapy.

Liquid vibrations facilitates Musical Hydrotherapy sessions and provides training for schools so they can fully embed the therapy as part of their curriculum.

This innovative therapy combines the benefits of aquatic bodywork therapy and sound therapy, using underwater speakers while performing a passive form of aquatic therapy.

Evidence gathered over the last 8 years by many practitioners in the UK and together with the few academic institutions show that participants displays some improvements in communication, emotional development, increased motor and sensory skills and are better able to regulate their nervous system achieving a deeper state of relaxation after only a short period of taking part of the program.
