Emily & Toby Sinclair fundraised to install a hydrotherapy pool at their home for Alexia and hope attend more intense swim therapy courses, which helps them learn how to perform physiotherapy effectively in the water with Alexia.

Alexia’s mum Emily, says, “The hydrotherapy pool helps Alexia muscles relax and stretch, we can see the benefits every day, especially as she is growing. The water helps increases her balance, strength & coordination. It also provides Alexia with variety to physio on dry land, which comes with the weight bearing. We are so thankful to GeeWizz, they really are heroes.”
