Generally such fees aren't deductible, even though they might help improve your general health.

Deductions for exercise, fitness programs or swimming classes aren't acceptable unless the doctor recommends them as a specific treatment for a specific health problem.

If this is the case, however, have a prescription or written note from your doctor and keep it with your tax records, just in case the IRS asks.
