ATNI – Aquatic Therapy Network of India is an initiative to bring all the aquatic therapy professionals and their activities under a single umbrella. It is established to provide support, enable research, assist in infrastructure development, develop professionals, deliver right education and most of all make the concept of Aquatic therapy reach the patients. It is formed by a group of enthusiastic group of Professionals who are aquatic therapists. It was conceptualised in the year 2011 by C G Prashanth after completion of his training in aquatic therapy at KliniK Valens, Switzerland. After observing lack of awareness and education of aquatic therapy in India, there was a need to form a support group for helping the concept of Aquatic therapy to grow, to help various professionals to sustain the concept and make the patients obtain the maximum benefit.

ATNI was initially started as a face book group, growing slowly developing objectives, paving clear directions for growth and supporting professionals.

ATNI will work in coordination with Physiotherapists,  occupational Therapists, Watsu Practitioners, Aqua fitness professionals and other aquatic body workers to establish professional boundaries and standards of practice.
