It is important for your safety and well being that you undergo a land based assessment prior to starting a course of hydrotherapy treatment by a qualified physiotherapist. This is to determine your fitness level and suitability for hydrotherapy and is also used to discuss your requirements and set goals for your sessions. This dry land assessment is mandatory for all of our patients.

What are the costs?
We have worked hard to bring you a quality hydrotherapy service at a reasonable cost. London Hydrotherapy currently charges £95 per session. However, the first session is at a discounted rate of £60. We also offer block booking discounts.
London Hydrotherapy is recognised by most medical insurance companies. If you are insured, we will send the invoice for your treatment directly to your insurer. For us to be able to do this, you will have to provide your membership number and a valid authorisation number from your insurer. Please ensure that you have this information before you attend your first session. If we do not have all of this information, we will invoice you directly.
Please note that the ultimate responsibility for payment rests with the patient: If for any reason, your insurer refuses to pay for any treatment, you will be liable yourself. For this reason, please contact your insurer before making an appointment, to check your level of cover and entitlement.
How long does a hydrotherapy session last?
Your personalised treatment will approximately consist of a 30 minute session with the hydrotherapist. You will need to update them on your progress since your last appointment. Please remember to allow enough time for changing, showering and drying off.
How often can I have hydrotherapy treatment?
Normally once or twice a week.
Patients need to be able to change and get in and out of the water with minimal assistance.
There are 8 shallow steps with a handrail on either side to access at UCH (please see gallery)
