Healing Wave Aquatics is a premier provider of aquatic bodywork therapies for military veterans, active duty personnel, and caregivers living with the debilitating impacts of post-traumatic stress. Through research and compelling personal client accounts, we find that when individuals with PTS receive aquatic bodywork therapy, the results are often immediate and profound. Reduced stress, better sleep, the ability to think more clearly, minimized physical pain and an overall sense of well-being are just some of the powerful healing effects of treatment on PTS. When the same therapy is given to their caregivers, they report many of the same benefits, often feeling revitalized and thus better able to support their loved ones in their own recovery process.
Healing Wave Aquatics has also led the way in capturing viable research data to quantifiably demonstrate the healing powers of this Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) modality.
There is an immense need to increase awareness about post-traumatic stress and improve veterans’ access to treatment. Healing Wave Aquatics provides a best practices program, including an operationalized program format with data measurement, high-level services provided by practitioners who provide their annual certification updates, and continuous learning opportunities for staff and practitioners to meet the needs of individuals with PTS, and a strong governance team that oversees the strategic direction of Healing Wave Aquatics.
Over the past decade, we have served over 700 veteran, active-duty military, and their caregivers. We are looking forward to expanding our program to other vulnerable populations in the future.
