Dolphin therapy center launched in Sochi

The Center of Dolphin Therapy, conducting sessions for children with various diseases, works in the RIVIERA amusement park.

“We do not call it a treatment; these sessions are rather rehabilitation and psychic correction. But virtually all parents note that after the dolphin therapy children with limited health abilities and mental retardation come to a new level of communication with their relatives and get new skills and abilities", – Natalya Vasilevskaya, Center’s curator, has commented.

The sessions in the Sochi dolphinarium are still conducted outdoors. By the winter time the facility will be covered with a dome, and children will be dressed in wet suits.
