So, a few months have passed by and now it is time for our report of my second dolphin therapy from 25.07.-08.08.09 in the ONMEGA-Dolphin therapy center in Marmaris!!!
We liked the dolphin therapy center very much in 2008 and so we decided to go to Marmaris again.
Everyone was really friendly and excellent in what they did, whether it was the therapists, trainer or trainees. Last year I was an exception because normally they accept only children from the age of two. I like animals and water so I had a great time and was impressed with the trainer. I have made progress since the therapy in 2008 and this year I hope to make more.

How are you? Well I hope after a busy summer – you are coming to the end of the season aren’t you?
Hello everyone – Barbara, Alejandra, Ramona, Irena, Rick, Ventura, Axel and everyone who remembers us.
Firstly I have to apologise for only writing now. I have been adjusting to being a stay-at-home-work-from-home mom. The time has just flown by and suddenly its been almost 5 moths since we were in Marmaris. For us it feels like it was a life time ago but also like it was yesterday – we are very nostalgic and look at our pictures and talk about our time there all the time. We would love to come back again so we have to work on that plan. Read the rest of this entry
Dear Axel, Dear Paul, Dear Andrea!
We visited you last year in July with our Nikolas to swim with the dolphins. Perhaps you remember, Nikolas was five and a half and asked whether he could swim with Splash and you said yes! We are very thankful for this because he is fascinated with dolphins even more than before, and we are too!!! He often speaks about Splash and what a wonderful experience it was for him!
How are you all and the dolphins? We are often thinking of you all. ,
I am sending you a few photos showing Nikolas and our friend
Sieghilde swimming with Splash! And also some showing our experience with Splash, simply unforgettable!!!
Hearty greetings to your whole team and also to Splash!!!
from all of us:, Read the rest of this entry

Janina’s Dolphin Therapy in Marmaris turkey from 29.09. – 13.10.2008
My name is Janina and I am 11 years old. Because of my spasticity and weak muscles I visited the dolphins in Marmaris from 29.09. to 13.10. 2008. On Tuesday, one day after we arrived at the Hotel Mares, we began the therapy starting with an introduction to the therapists. My Dad and I had to answer questions concerning my disability. Having recorded all the information they prepared a course of therapies based on my disability.
In the mornings dolphin therapy and in the afternoons speech or physio therapy. On Wednesday morning I had my first therapy session. My dolphin was called Daisy. At first I was anxious about his size but Barbara, my therapist, quickly calmed my fears. She showed me Daisy from the edge of the pool. Read the rest of this entry

We would like to report about our experiences, impressions and the resulting success of our dolphin therapy. Our dream to have a dolphin therapy was finally fulfilled on 07.07.2007!
For years it had been our wish to engage our daughter Sarina, who has multiple disabilities, in a dolphin therapy. We had heard so many positive things about the effects a dolphin therapy can have and experienced it with other children, so naturally we wanted to enable Sarina to participate in such a wonderful experience and give her the chance of betterment with her handicap. With wonderful support, we finally got to fulfill this dream! Read the rest of this entry

We waited a long time before writing our experience report about Kay’s dolphin therapy in August 2007. We wanted to see what effects it would have throughout the months following therapy.
Kay, a multiple complex disabled, 16 year old boy, experienced months of pain after a hip operation in June 2006 because of medical egligence. Because of this, Kay lost all trust in his own body which led to muscle tension with a Scoliose-development of 65 degrees. Read the rest of this entry

A testimonial from family Manuela, Bernhard and Michael Braun about the dolphin therapy in Marmaris in Sept. 2007.
Hello Barbara !
It took a while, but now we have a lot to report. Firstly, I hope you and your colleagues are doing well and that you all had a good start into the new year. We have a very turbulent time behind us because Michael has been sick a lot.Otherwise he is doing great though.
-He walks very well holding our hand. He sometimes lets go and yesterday for the first time he stood on his own for about 30seconds and did this several more times. -Michaels understanding of language has improved and his reaction time following requests has shortened.
-He is a lot more alert, very enthusiatic about learning new things and extremely mad when he can’t succeed at new things he is trying Read the rest of this entry
