Welcome to Aqua-Moves Aquatic Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists working exclusively in Hydrotherapy

In warm water the body is supported, movement is easier and pain is less.

Toni Fuller and Lisa Gilkes are both highly skilled physiotherapists who, over the last 10 years, have combined their wealth of experience to develop a unique treatment approach in water. They look closely at how your whole body is moving and use very specific exercises that give you a sense of how to move with greater ease and efficiency. When all parts of your body are working well together, exercises for stability, strength and mobility are much more effective.


If you would like more information or to make an appointment, please contact:

    It is possible for us to travel to other hydrotherapy pools, but we require a minimum of 4 bookings and this service is by appointment only. We are also able to conduct private sessions in home pools, but they must be deemed safe for us to do this.
