(There is safe parking in front of the practice. The area is patrolled by guards employed by the Rowhill residence.)
New Life Biokinetics founded in 1994 by Dr Gerda Joubert incorporated AQUATOTS Swim Program into the practice in 2003. Gerda, a strong believer in the power of movement, immediately recognized the value of AQUATOTS in stimulating very young children to readily perform teaching patterns that simulated corrective movement patterns. Originally specializing in hydrotherapy, treatment for impaired life-style diseases, orthopaedic injuries, paraplegia and quadriplegia, as well as running courses for physiotherapists and biokineticists in hydrotherapy officiated by local and international trainers, she added AQUATOTS as an extension to therapy. With two indoor heated pools on the premises and an additional area for land therapy, AQUATOTS could operate normally as a swim program and at the same time serve an extension to infant hydrotherapy.
AQUATOTS Springs and AQUATOTS Boksburg recently joined forces. Elaine Mooi, owner of AQUATOTS Boksburg, will be the operator of both Franchises. Gayle Birnie, who held the position of chief instructor at AQUATOTS Springs for over a decade will continue in this position. In her own right, Gayle, accredited with SA Water Fitness (SAWFA) and Basic Life Support (BLS) qualified, will continue to run the Water Aerobics aspect of New Life Biokinetics.
With their strengths combined AQUATOTS Springs and AQUATOTS Boksburg will be a formidable front in the Greater East Rand.
