Aquatic Resources Network

Therapist Founded. Therapist Grounded.

Hi all aquatists, I am off and running with aquatic therapy in the east bay at the Berkeley High SChool warm pool (92 degrees, 2200 sq ft.) which is an OK facility, but old and unsafe seismically. It will be torn out and replaced in the next 2-3 years. I have two other warm pool options; one in Rossmoor, Walnut Creek, for seniors, and the George Miller Center (part of Contra Costa Co. Assoc. for Retarded Citizens in Richmond, Hilltop) for pediatrics. I have to work around their schedules with my private practice. So ultimately, I would like to build my own backyard 10x14 pool with cabana, and a retractable roof. Any ideas for capitalizing something like this on a home property? What companies would be good to research? What questions should I be asking? How much private liability insurance should I be carrying for a part-time, private, self-employed SLP aquatic therapist? I currently have 1,000,000/500,000,000 coverage. Is that enough? Hoping that you are all doing well and enjoying using the new skills. I am loving it. My blue, sprint, aqua mat is a big hit with the kiddos.

Importance of staying hydrated when immersed in water for long periods

Being in water for some time makes most people want to pee.  This is why I ask aquatic bodywork clients to avoid drinking too much fluid before a session and encourage them to drink plenty of water afterwards.The dehydrating effect is especially significant for some (see highlight below) as Peggy Schroedinger, Aqua PT explains.  I thought this might be of interest here ...Renal response to immersion in waterTwo hormonal changes occur:Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) is suppressed resulting in an…See More

"the ion level got double the recommended level and everything turned a copper color that took 3 years to get rid of. I was new to my pool then and hadn't worked out how to use it."

"Hi Kim, May I ask what system you are using?  I'm never seen that in our systems.  Did you call their customer support?  "
