Feedback on CALA Training (Courses and Workshops)

Finally the 'civilized' world is catching up with what ancient societies recognized the "Healing Power of Water" and practiced various forms of water exercise for centuries. Movement in water offers multidirectional resistance in a non impact environment. Water supports the body and cushions movement. When the water is warm enough, the pain cycle is interrupted and the healing process is encouraged. Aquatic Post Rehabilitation is not new. Recently, there has been renewed interest in water as a therapeutic means of healing. Health Care Providers, (physicians, chiropractors, physiotherapists, OT's, massage therapists - to name only a few) in the 'know' are referring patients to exercise in water. The business opportunities are immense. With certification in Healing Waters, you can expand your business, bring relief to so many people and contribute to the health and well being of your community: win-win-win.
