The benefits of Dolphin Therapy

Swimming with dolphins creates an effect that gives joy and peace of mind, enforces the immune system, improves awareness, attention and self-control and develops feelings of compassion and self-confidence. As the interest and curiosity for the outside world expands, the capacity to benefit from inter-personal relations improves radically.

Consequently, patients who recieve ergotherapy, logopedy or phsiotherapy will benefit from these treatments much faster and more thoroughly.

After the dolphin therapy, disabled children build a capacity to learn faster; in one or two months, they can acquire the knowledge and physical skills that will normally take them a year to learn. Dolphin therapy accelerates the learning process two to ten times the normal rate, and this improvement will be effective from six months up to a
year.

A six-year-old autistic child went through the dolphin therapy and received special tutoring and therapies for a year; he got rid of all autistic symptoms and when he came back for the dolphin therapy the following year, no autistic traits were observed.
