Children’s Special Needs Hydrotherapy

As a physiotherapist, Stefan is very happy to carry out hydrotherapy sessions should a suitable location be arranged for me to do so with your child. Stefan currently carries out sessions at Teddington hydrotherapy pool but he is also able to discuss other suitable locations.

Family and friends are of course very welcome to help assist with sessions, and dependent upon your child’s presentation, Stefan may have to insist that appropriate assistance is arranged to be with him in the pool or at the pool side.
