Therapy weeks in Lanzarote are a fantastic way to receive therapy under the warm sunshine. Our team pride themselves on making sure every last detail is taken care of prior to your arrival. Please find more information and frequently asked questions below. Sessions with Swim Lab International start at 3 years of age.

What does a typical therapy week offer?

A typical week includes 6 days of therapy including one session of dry land session with our Disability specific Strength and Conditioning Coach per day. All equipment for these sessions is provided and will be tailored to your requirements and be readily available at our training centre. Using the latest techniques adapting activities, games and tasks to enhance and benefit of the aquatic therapy offered whilst transferring these skills to day to day activities.


Once a booking has been made you will be contacted by our team to gain further information to help devise a training programme specific to your needs. Each and every client has a specific set of goals, abilities and skill set this will be used along with our unique approach to “getting the job done” through play and our “Box Therory” therapy.


Each week our team sit down, usually in a palm tree lined location with the sun beating down on our heads to discuss tand plan your weeks. We work with you to plan the week, each week is specific and no one client has the same set of exercises or personality which may dictate timings of sessions or conducted around timings of feeding and other medical requirements.


Manual development, strength, stability, core engagement all form part of the box theory which at the end of the training week you will be able to leave armed with all the information to pass onto other therapists that you work with at home. This way, we can continually work with you once returning home to further improve from the success gained throughout the development week.

Aquatic based sessions are given twice per day over the 6 days with one session in the morning and the same in the afternoon. This may seem like a lot of training but with the amount of fun and games happening to most clients they want us to stay longer as they don’t realise the amount of development that is happening without them really realising its all therapy. Our Paediatric Disability Consultant will devise and lead the programme which will combine both aquatic and land based therapy in order for the sessions to flow together enhancing and complimenting each other.


We may need to receive reports from your home based therapists including: OT, Physio, Hydro and S&C coaches all of these will be used to make the programme as specific to your needs and requirements.

How does it work?

Once you have made your booking the team working behind the scenes to prepare for your week. After you have selected the dates that work for you from our booking form you can arrange your flights and accommodation. We recommend using Camel Travel who assist you with flights, suitable accommodation, car hire and provide you with the security in booking and travelling to Lanzarote.


Once that is all in place you will be assigned a key contact. Your key contact will be responsible for all of your questions, communication and queries prior to travel and throughout your stay. You will have access to your very own account to communicate with us which will help us to create a very unique training week just for you.


To give you and your family the best possible experience during your stay we will be asking for information from many different areas including but not limited to – daily routines, consultants and other professional practitioners who work and facilitate programmes with the client, carers and additional support requirements.


Once we have all this information, the team will meet to discuss options of how best to train during the week. A programme will be devised and reviewed to ensure we meet the requirements of each and every client. You will also be a key part of this to ensure we meet your needs, and those of anyone else travelling.


You will be allocated 3 sessions per day* split into morning and afternoon sessions, depending on requirements. Strength, conditioning, relaxation on dry land and also in the water!

Our team will be working side by side to deliver a full programme for you, whilst every clients needs are individual our goal is not. We make sure every last detail is covered prior to your trip. Additional assistance can be provided to source certain foods or supplies that you many need during your week. We may offer additional services to our clients that may be useful and give you information about the island and the many activities that are on offer whilst you are here.


*Session scheduling may vary depending on availability of facilities and requirement so may differ from week to week.

How do bookings work?

Bookings require full payment for therapy services to be paid up front within 72 hours of confirmation or direct by online payment. We also allow payments from various funding sources. These bookings now transferable to future dates if you are for any reason unable to travel but are not refundable. Please note certain funding partners will pay for different packages based on requirements on your behalf. Please consult your funding provider before placing booking to confirm.


Upon completion of a booking a lot of work goes on in the back ground which you don’t get to see. Logistics of staffing, movement of other bookings and services we provide locally on a weekly basis, facilities payments are also required in advance along with the planning of the weeks themselves.


We can only take a limited number of bookings per week and due to the nature of the services that we offer our staff needing to take a specific amount of “none direct client contact” time scheduled monthly which is calculated in advance to make sure we give you the highest level of service throughout your stay. The complexities and logistics of such weeks require a whole team to make sure that your week runs smoothly and is why our clients continue to make repeat bookings.


The cost for the week for coaching includes all staffing, pre and post visit contact and planning. Use of training facilities for our client (child only with entry for session times only with additional time for changing provided which can be extended should the need arise.

If we come as a family can we make it into a family holiday?

Of course you can, we actually encourage you to bring the family along. Therapy isn’t just about the client themselves, we actively encourage you to take part in sessions and spend much needed down time together either relaxing or discovering our beautiful island. Just remember, the main aim of the trip is for therapy and sessions cannot be planned around being on holiday. The therapy has to take priority.


We believe that therapy should be fun, sometimes with hidden purpose or gains but that is all explained to you each day so you know exactly what is happening during each and every session.

If training is taking place at our training complex then you are welcomed to sit at the bar whilst sessions are taking place. There is an additional charge for using our facilities which can be quoted at the time of booking and will be payable in resort or at the time of booking. The choice is yours.

What is left to do other than send us over your reservation dates and confirm your booking. Please note that therapy is not booked with specific staff members and location of training centre will be supplied at time of booking depending on dates which may be required to change.
