In our House there is a therapeutic gymnasium, in which our members can participate in and perform therapeutic gymnastics (complementary to their private physiotherapy practice).
Each programme of exercises is personalized according to the needs and problems of the member’s condition and is adapted to the ages of the participants. The exercises are performed under the supervision of a physiotherapist, with the aim of improving respiratory system function, muscle strengthening, walking balance, muscle relaxation, muscle coordination of movements and the overall well-being of the member.
The programmes include stretching exercises, muscle-strengthening exercises with rubber balls, balance exercises, breathing exercises, ball exercises, occupational therapies for upper extremities, bicycling, static treadmills and so on. For our younger members, workouts are in the form of a pleasant and creative game. In this way we manage to combine the therapeutic gymnastics with entertainment and a fun way to socialize.
Participation is free of charge for all members who have paid their annual subscription (€25/year).
If you would like any further information or you wish to arrange an annual subscription, please contact Georgia Moraitis at 210 3616980 or 3616981.
