Beit Issie Shapiro is proud to run one of the largest hydrotherapy (also known as aquatherapy) programs in the world. We have helped to establish 120 hydrotherapy centers across Israel.
The Williams Island Therapeutic Swimming and Recreation Center was opened in 1992 and provides hydrotherapy for people of all ages, aiming to improve the individual’s all around functioning – physical, emotional and social. The Center operates two pools situated within a temperature-controlled environment and offers many different methods of aquatic therapy.
In 2012, Beit Issie Shapiro became the first center in the world to offer treatment with an iPad in the water which is used as a solution to communication challenges of children with cognitive disabilities.
