Our Water Immersion in Hydrotherapy Spas
Babies experience a state of relaxation when immersed in to temperature-controlled water. After all, it’s a very similar feeling to being in the womb. My Baby Bubble offers a one-on-one water immersion experience where family can interact with the baby from the side of the hydrotherapy spa. Your presence means they can experience its wonders while still being in close contact and connecting with you. This enhances attachment and bonding between parents and your baby.
When enjoying a group experience, you baby also gets to benefit from socialising with other babies, and the presence of age-appropriate water safe toys are provided to enhance your child’s fun and enjoyment experience.
Why Water Immersion?

Our Water Immersion Experience
My Baby Bubble offers two rooms with both individual and group spas. Individual spas are for babies aged newborn to three months as well as unvaccinated babies. The larger spas are used for babies 3 months to 12 months of age who have been immunised as well as group sessions of one staff member to three babies at a time.
One on one spa and massage session – A staff member is allocated to the family for a 60-minute. The session time is dependent on your babies tolerance to the experience and will length with each session. The length of time your baby spends in the water will depend on your babies tolerance to the environment. The initial visit sees your baby in the hydrotherapy spa for approximately 10 minutes. The staff member is constantly looking for the smallest of cues from your baby on when they have reached their limit. With each positive experience and continual visitation your baby will enjoy longer sessions in the water lasting up to 30 minutes. With your baby relaxed after their spa our staff member will follow up with a baby massage using techniques in Swedish and Indian massage, along with Reflexology.
Group spa sessions – three families are allocated to each staff member for a 60 minutes session. Families are encouraged to take a very active role in the sessions to increase the bonding between family and your baby. As for one on one your baby will spend time in the hydrotherapy spa depending on their tolerance. Parents are then given the opportunity to perform baby massage on their baby at the change mats provided.
Our spas also cater to the needs of physiotherapist, and occupational therapist for children and adults. Booking can be made through your therapist.
Health and safety is paramount, and our group spas have UV, ozone and osmosis filtration systems fitted. The water is specially formulated to work at 37degree Celsius, the core temperature of babies and ideal temperature for a hydrotherapy spa. The filtration system is cleaned weekly and on a monthly basis we drain, clean and sanitize each group spa. In addition, there is also a shut-down valves in the rare occurrence of nappy leakage.
Our single spas are cleaned, filled, emptied and cleaned again with each baby.
