Participated in the WST Module in 2016

My aims for attending the course were to improve my knowledge and handling skills in aquatic physiotherapy, for which this course, I can say far exceeded those aims. I have attended many courses over the years but I haven’t been on such an intensive steep learning curve for a very long while. The module was fantastic with so much practical work in the pool supplemented with latest evidence based guidance and clinical relevance.
The highlight for me was to treat patients for 3 days. with the incredible support and guidance by Johan and Urs were invaluable.
I highly recommended this course to all, just be prepared to be worked really hard and to leave the mountains with your brain ready to explode with knowledge and mental and physical fatigue! This course is not for the faint hearted but worth every penny spent!

The Aquatic Therapy Course at the Kliniken Valens is embedded in evidence based practice and the teachers Johan and Urs know their stuff in every detail. The opportunity to treat patients and being introduced to loads of options in aquatic rehabilitation was invaluable. The course was well organized and meeting people from all over the world in a stunning surroundings in Valens. That was great. First Class!!

This course is highly recommended for health professional ( MD, PT, OT.... ) who want to immerse themselves in aquatic therapy for the following reasons: content and teaching methodology, being eminently practical (with patients) and taught by leading experts at the highest level and experience.

The best course ever! The whole course provided useful information to me both as a physical therapist and a researcher. Different techniques with strong scientific background ensured evidence for daily practice and further research. Also, it was a privilege meeting colleagues from all around the world, sharing ideas and discussing how aquatic therapy/therapists work in the other parts of the world. And the great nature of Valens played an important role for relaxing after long educative hours  I strongly recommend for all physical therapists who are interested in aquatic therapy to attend this marvelous course and have a chance to enhance their approaches to the patients. Thanks for all the efforts of Johan Lambeck and Urs Gamper about improving aquatherapy and sharing their unique experience with us.
