To provide even more healthy services and options for you, we are developing aquatics-based therapy and wellness programming. Both our nursing teams and therapy teams are working in conjunction with Mandy McCracken-Atkins, a Dallas-based Physical Therapy and Aquatics Programming Consultant with over 29 years of experience.
The objective is to offer top-notch aquatics programming to residents and the surrounding community as part of our state-of-the-art wellness and therapy offering.
In addition to being fun, participating in aquatics therapy can provide many health benefits.
Improve circulation and the respiratory system
Relieve abnormal muscle tension and build muscle tone
Help reduce pain
Increase range of motion, strength, functional activity, balance, sleep, mood, emotional well being and mental function
Gains in the areas mentioned can then build on one another, providing overall health improvement.
