Life-changing therapy for people with disabilities or special needs.

the scuba gym

Scientific research has shown that scuba diving greatly assists those with the most serious physical injuries and particularly it is exceptionally successful in reducing reported symptoms of
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder (PTSD)


About Us

The Scuba Gym Australia provides Scuba Therapy to people with special needs, such as Quadriplegics, Paraplegics, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Lyme’s Disease, Dandy Walker Syndrome, Hypotonia, Fibromyalgia, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Motor Neuron Disease, Spina Bifida, Autism, Down Syndrome, PTSD, Amputees and all others who have the desire to learn to scuba dive.

We have seen autistic children concentrate, focus, gain confidence and do activities their parents thought they would never do.

Scuba Diving is also a great activity for people with disabilities is it provides a weight-free environment, giving back the sense of freedom of movement.

Is it Necessary?
Is it Reasonable?
