Welcome to Harry's Hydrotherapy Pool
HARRY'S HYDRO'S FIRST SESSION TOOK PLACE ON 5TH NOVEMBER 2012. WE HAVE NOW BEEN SERVING THE CHILDREN OF CRITCHILL SCHOOL, BABIES IN SWIMMING GROUPS, AND PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS IN THE FROME AREA FOR OVER 10 YEARS.
This was only possible due to the dedication and support of our wonderful group of Volunteers. A special thanks go to all the loyal Water Testers over the past 10 years, without whom Harry's Hydro would not have been able to operate.
A special thanks also go to the volunteers who have assisted with our Tuesday and Friday afternoon sessions, which cater for local individual users.
THE TRUSTEES LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT SUCESSFUL 10 YEARS, SERVING THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY!
About Harry's Hydro
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.
