2617 – Intermediate AquaStretch™ for the Spine

Intermediate / 8-hour Workshop


Faculty: Beth Scalone, PT, DPT, OCS, ATRIC


Participants must have completed AquaStretchTM Basics or the AquaStretchTM Specialty Certificate Program.


AquaStretch™ helps to restore flexibility, reduce pain and improve sleep. AquaStretch™ theoretically breaks down fascial adhesions utilizing a combination of the facilitator/ therapist’s manual pressure and the client/ patient’s intuitive movement. AquaStretch™ methodology can be utilized within a wellness program or by therapists as an aquatic manual therapy technique. This is a one-on-one manual technique and not intended for group classes.

This course builds on the foundations and presents applications of AquaStretch™ techniques related to the spine. This course will cover the starting positions and grips for several AquaStretch™ techniques that influence the spine. Fascial connections of the spine are discussed and  related to specific AquaStretch™ procedures. The participants will practice AquaStretch™ procedures, including:

  • Applying AquaStretch™ theory and techniques for a variety of spine diagnoses
  • Dialogue with patients/clients regarding pain and expectations
  • Grips and holds for specific starting positions related to the spine
  • Explaining and facilitating intuitive movement to maximize AquaStretch™ session
  • Key follow-up exercise to maintain benefits from AquaStretch™ session


1)  Relate AquaStretch™ theories to the spine.

2)  Examine fascial connections influencing the spine.

3)  Safely perform 3-4 basic starting positions and grips related to the spine.

4)  Effectively cue and perform the basic AquaStretch™ procedure for the spine.

5)  Determine appropriate water depth and equipment usage to maximize AquaStretch™ session.

6)  Integrate AquaStretch™ technique into comprehensive spine rehabilitation program.

2626 - AquaStretch Certificate
2628 – Intermediate AquaStretch™ Pro for the Hip

Intermediate / 2-hour Workshop


Faculty: Laurie Denomme, B.Kinesiology


Prerequisite: Participants must have completed Introduction to AquaStretchTM or AquaStretchTM Basics or the AquaStretchTM Specialty Certificate Program.


COURSE DESCRIPTION: You’ve learned the AquaStretch™ technique – now it’s time to become a pro. This workshop teaches and applies knowledge of anatomy in motion to the AquaStretch™ procedure, One Leg Standing. Develop an understanding of what ranges of motion should be available at the hip, enhancing your ability to seek out and identify probable areas of tightness, pain or restriction. Learn why limited mobility and stability of these muscles can be the source of lower back pain, sciatica, headaches and more. Apply the principles of movement to restore optimal function to the hip flexors, adductors, abductors, rotators and hamstrings. Incorporate exercises to enhance stability in the newly acquired range of motion, facilitating maximized client results.


1)  Describe why 3-dimensional movement is an essential component of any prevention, performance or rehabilitation program.

2)  Identify motion at the hip necessary for functional movement.

3)  Identify common deficits in hip range of motion and how that can lead to dysfunction.

4)  Apply understanding of functional anatomy to restore optimal function to the hip flexors, adductors, abductors, rotators and hamstrings.

5)  Select appropriate exercises to be done in a gravitational environment to improve stability in newly acquired range of motion.
