Aquatic Therapy Patient in a Pool


HCRC Aquatic Therapy Program

The Hearst Cancer Resource Center is proud to offer Aquatic Rehabilitation by Kay Heaton, founder of Club Kay, at no cost to cancer patients who lack the ability to pay for the service. The one-on-one sessions sponsored by HCRC community donations are by appointment only to cancer patients who qualify.  

Aquatic Integration is performed in the water, aiming to rehabilitate patients after or during a chronic illness. It uses the resistance of water instead of weights taking the pressure off joints for better outcomes and significant decrease in pain. Aquatic therapy is a rapidly growing clinical approach to rehabilitation. The benefits are numerous:

  • Decreases swelling
  • Increases range of motion
  • Strengthens muscles and improves mobilization
  • Improves cardiovascular stamina 
  • Increases balance and coordination
  • Increases flexibility, muscle tone and strength

This program is held at Kay Heaton’s facility at Club Kay in San Luis Obispo. Kay Heaton, Kinesio-Therpaist, is a cancer survivor.  Kay and her qualified team of therapists offer aquatic modalities to individuals experiencing the trauma of cancer treatments.
