Welcome to Harry's Hydrotherapy Pool

HARRY'S HYDRO POOL IS NOW CLOSED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS. THE POOL WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL WE ARE ASSURED IT IS SAFE AND LEGAL TO REOPEN. WE APOLOGISE TO ALL OUR VALUED USERS, AND HOPE YOU ALL KEEP SAFE AND WELL UNTIL WE REOPEN.

We are a small local charity that built and runs a community Hydrotherapy pool in Frome, Somerset for those with disabilities, sensory, behavioural or learning difficulties, a life threatening illness (e.g. cancer) or a limiting condition (e.g. rheumatism or fibromyalgia). It is available to all ages, from babies to the elderly.

Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy undertaken in an environment of warm water and high air temperature, the combination of which relaxes the patient and eases pain, which frees the user to move in ways they cannot on land. The pool and environment at these warm temperatures is also very effective for those with learning difficulties as it satisfies and calms their sensory needs thus allowing them to use the more complex thinking and communication parts of the brain.

 

The pool is in memory of local boy Harry Fox who died aged 13 months.
