SCUBA-PSYCHE: FEAR, PAIN AND THE SEA
by Richard Cullen | 12th June 2017
A huge thank you to one of our members for drawing our attention to the link to this excellent article.
Great that the message is getting out there about the healing effects of the ocean. We know that it benefits those with physical injury - being neutrally buoyant allows many to be pain free for the first time since suffering their injury/illness - it is like hydrotherapy on a massive scale.
For those with PTSD once their head dips under the water their is calmness and programme members report the demons go away.
When the Sheffield University Medical School's report about our work is published the world will be able to see the benefits of the system.
However there is a danger that some are over egging the benefits and to some extent some of the comments in this report do that.
