Why We Built ARN

Over a century ago, physical therapy was a niascent healing technique practiced by nurses on wounded WWI solidiers. Initially an unproven methodology, practitioners steadily built a proven body of research to justify its use to the medical profession, until it was eventually accepted as a new allied health field.

Now aquatic therapy is the New Frontier and to help convince the world of its benefits, Aquatic Resources Network was born. Through research, advocacy and education, ARN seeks to promote the magic of water to clinicians, patients and governments everywhere.
