What We Do
We enable individuals to access the ocean in a safe way to participate in water sport activities. This is so they can experience and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the ocean.
Why We Do It
We want to better the lives of others and to provide them with opportunities for new meaningful experiences that they might not otherwise have, whilst providing respite for all.
How We Do It
We currently deliver Ocean Therapy through surf, paddle and Flowrider sessions. Please click on the services tab to find out more and book your first session!
At Healing Waves, we pride ourselves on having a group of dedicated and experienced Volunteers who either work in the care sector, live and breathe a lifestyle of water sports, or both! Each Volunteer is friendly, approachable and passionate about helping others and bettering the lives of anyone accessing our sessions. We want every Athlete’s experience to be fun, meaningful and as memorable as possible!
What is Blue Mind & Ocean Therapy?
“A mildly meditative state characterised by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment. This is not hippy dippy stuff, this is neuroscience.” Wallace J Nichols 2017
Ocean Therapy is a relatively new but internationally recognised natural form of therapy. It is practised by harnessing the ocean and using water sports as a medium, to better the lives of those living with neurological and physical disabilities and/or conditions. These can include, but are not limited to: Low muscle tone, ASC, ADHD, Cystic Fibrosis & PTSD.
