Healing Waves enables individuals despite their condition and/or disability both neurological and physical to access the ocean in a safe way to participate in water sport activities. This is so they can experience the therapeutic benefits that the ocean holds for us all.
The charity offer Ocean Therapy through guided surf, paddle and flow sessions. These water sports are used as a vessel, assisting athletes in gaining more self-confidence, communication, whilst providing therapy and respite for all that attend.
We work closely with the fantastic team, capturing their sessions and events. It’s always such a pleasure spending time in and around the ocean with the Healing Waves team. The positive energy is contagious.
What is Blue Mind & Ocean Therapy?
“A mildly meditative state characterised by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment. This is not hippy dippy stuff, this is neuroscience.” Wallace J Nichols 2017
Ocean Therapy is a relatively new but internationally recognised natural form of therapy. This is done by harnessing the ocean and water sports as a medium, to better the lives of those that are living with neurological and physical disabilities and/or conditions. These can vary from, but are not limited to: Low muscle tone, ASC, ADHD, Cystic Fibrosis & PTSD.
