Who We Are

As the name suggests, the International Halliwick Association (the IHA) is an international association with members from across the world. We are here to support our members in teaching happiness in water through the Halliwick Concept
Although focusing on those with physical and/or learning difficulties, the Halliwick Concept is an approach to teaching everyone to participate in water activities, to move independently in water, and to swim.
It is based on a belief in the benefits of activities in water, and sets out fundamentals necessary for learning. Benefits are physical, personal, recreational, social and therapeutic.
The Halliwick Concept has influenced hydrotherapy techniques, and has been developed into specific therapeutic exercises.
We are here to promote the Halliwick Concept of teaching swimming and rehabilitation in water throughout the world.
We are here to develop and encourage good practise in the use of the Halliwick Concept.
