Hydrotherapy

The therapeutic use of hot and cold water is a gentle treatment that increases circulation to affected areas, bringing nutrients, removing waste products, focusing the immune system and stimulating the body's ability to heal.

These effects are achieved by the alternating application of hot and cold water – in the form of wet towels, sheets, shower spray or tubs.

A powerful hydrotherapy technique, known as “Constitutional Hydrotherapy”, consists of a series of alternating applications of hot and cold towels to the chest and back. This works to create a pumping action in the blood vessels – increasing blood flow to and from the organs. This tonifies the digestive and detoxification organs (liver, kidney, lungs and intestinal tract), thereby improving the nutrition received by the blood and helping to cleanse the blood of endogenous and exogenous toxins. It also tonifies the nervous and immune systems, making it useful in the treatment of fatigue, stress, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and decreased immunity.

Although “Constitutional Hydrotherapy” is a treatment that is better performed in a clinic setting, there are many effective hydrotherapy treatments for fatigue, stress, colds and flu's and sinus problems that can be performed in the comfort of your own home. These include, but are not limited to: nasal lavage, contrast showers and the ever-popular warming socks.
