Biokinetic Therapy

What our clients say

I have had two knee operations and one operation on my shoulder. I suffer from Osteo-Arthritis and low bone density. Both these conditions have improved vastly since I started with the sessions. I have been fortunate enough to be able to have Biokinetic sessions together with Aqua-Therapy through Fish and Field since 2017 and have found my sessions to be both productive and beneficial.
I highly recommend Fish and Field to anyone seeking professional, supportive and highly knowledgeable therapists.
Frank Meyburgh
“The facilities are appealing, with a nice sized, heated pool. Easy access from parking lot to the pool. They are well equipped, with pool noodles, dumbbells, floats, etc.
Nicole [Ramsay] is extremely friendly and accommodating, patient and caring. They went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable, whilst I experienced body changes and a low self-esteem. Nicole took the time to learn the things I enjoyed, like talking about cricket.”
Jiten Bhula
“In the short time I have been in the water working with Jenna to manage Parkinson’s, I have found my movement and my body getting stronger with each session. I don’t feel as rigid and overall movement of my legs has much improved.
The team of therapists made me feel welcome and now instead of looking for an excuse not to go I look forward to my sessions.”
Peter Buntman

I really enjoy hydrotherapy, being in the water is great. It is the perfect environment as there is no pressure or strain on the joints, so it is safe. I am wheelchair bound, so I look forward to my hydrotherapy sessions every week. I firmly believe that the hydrotherapy has contributed to my continued mobility and overall good health.

Kevin Jordan

“I am a 65 years old male.  Following two cardiac bypasses, Jenna-Lee assisted me to return promptly and effectively to a state of fitness and strength – and since 2010-2011 I have been able to exercise circa two hours daily.  She has also been of tremendous help with strengthening my lower spine and neck muscles, and thus avoiding spinal and neck surgery.”

Niko Shefer

“Hi, my name is Freddy Ntumba.  I was involved in a motorbike accident in February 2008 and sustained a spinal cord injury (C6 level) and became paralyzed from the chest down.  In 2009 I started Biokinetics therapy in the pool and have gained a lot of core muscle strength and my endurance has gone sky high.  I am still doing Biokinetics therapy today.”

Freddy Ntumba

Having contracted polio at an early childhood age, I need to maintain a high level of fitness and muscle strength. Aqua-therapy was recommended and I have been doing aquatic exercises for the past 7 months. I would recommend Nicole as she is capable of evaluating your objectives and will identify the aquatic exercises needed to treat your specific condition and help you to achieve your ultimate expectations and objectives.
