Ai Chi is a water movement and relaxation program
that has been created to help people enjoy water in a fluid yet powerful progression.
Ai chi is an efficient exercise program that increases oxygen and calorie consumption simply with correct form and good positioning in the water.
It is a perfect relaxation technique for people with a lot of stress and ideal for improving range of motion, balance and mobility.
Created in Japan by Jun Kono, Ai Chi is performed standing in shoulder-deep water using a combination of deep breathing and slow, wide movements of the arms, legs, and trunk.
This technique can be performed in groups, in couples or individually.
While some therapeutic exercise programs can only be performed by a specific population
Ai Chi has been used with great success in:
- Relax Stress
- management of the wrath
- childbirth preparation
- pain management
- multiple sclerosis
- balance deficits
- syndrome carpal tunnel
- eating disorders
- weight control
- breast cancer
- cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation
- congestive heart failure

The people who practice Ai Chi are introduced to the basics of circular movements, breath control and stillness while experiencing core stability, upper limb and lower limb movements, and learning correct mechanics, of the pelvis.
