Rachael attended hydrotherapy with Dan as session supervisor. Rachael had no specific issues but due to recent problems Dan worked mainly on Rachael's shoulders, arms, hands and neck. He also did some work on her knees. 
Dan worked on a particularly effective exercise with Rachael lying on her back and doing a breaststroke motion whilst her hands were flat on her stomach. Rachael noticed a slight and occasional difficulty in breathing whilst lying on her back in the water. This was not enough to cause discomfort at present but is something to be aware of in the future.
The pool was noticeably cooler than usual and Rachael's jaw was locked on getting out and Rachael continued to feel the cold, shivering while getting dressed.
