Overlooking the marsh, our lap pool and warm water therapy pool provide a unique environment. Our aquatic therapy programs are ideal for individuals with soft tissue injuries, chronic pain or other joint conditions. They are also prescribed for individuals preparing for or recovering from surgery. Our lap pool features swim lessons, energizing fitness classes and lap swimming.
The Marsh offers a unique environment for children who are learning how to swim – a calm, comfortable atmosphere, warm water pools, highly experienced instructors and individualized attention. We offer group and individual lessons for students age 3 and up. We also offer parent-child swimming opportunities for children as young as six months.

An Ideal Environment
The warm water therapy pool takes advantage of water’s interactive properties: buoyancy and resistance. Buoyancy reduces the effects of gravity; it creates a protective environment for joints and provides support for injuries. Three dimensional resistance facilitates strengthening for all muscles. The intensity can be varied to accommodate a wide range of physical abilities.
Imagine yourself floating and supported in the water, being gently stretched and moved in circular or wave like patterns that liken the flow of a quiet mountain stream or the spiraling ebb and flow of the ocean. This is Aquatic Bodywork. An inclusive term used to describe a variety of water relaxation forms scheduled through The Marsh Spa and offered in our 94 degree warm water pool. Come sink into the comfort, as one of our four seasoned aquatic bodywork practitioners guide you through combinations of Watsu, Healing Dance, and Aquatic Integration, three different, but related water work forms that assist in increasing relaxation, spinal decompression, flexibility, emotional balance, and meditative calm.
