The wondrous feature provided by the Almighty to water allows it to decrease the specific weight of any body submerged in it and thus enables a wider range of movements not possible outside of the water. This fact is used to ease the pain of the patient using the unique features of the pool.
Treatments at the pool are given in doses of 12 per patient, following this there is an additional series of treatments of varying numbers for specific patients. The pool also offers special treatments for individual as well as groups.
