The Wesley Community is pleased to offer aquatic therapy and water-based exercise classes in Saratoga Springs. Often recommended for seniors, or those recovering from surgery or an injury, aquatic physical therapy can improve cardiovascular health, balance and flexibility. The warm water also facilitates peripheral circulation and muscle relaxation, while acting as a form of resistance, so strength exercises can be performed without the use of heavy weights.
Our pool schedule includes aqua aerobics, self-directed aquatic physical therapy, and gentle stretching and strengthening classes – all led by an aquatics instructor in our heated therapy pool – as well as one-on-one assistance for participants with severe mobility limitations.
