Many people suffer from pain, swelling, headaches, and other debilitating conditions. Finding treatments that work, have little or no side effects, and can be used as much as needed are not easy to come by. When you think of health and healing, the first thing that comes to mind may not be water. But, water can be used in hydrotherapy treatments to provide a number of health benefits as well as even accelerate healing. Hot water and cold water can be used separately and in combination to treat a variety of conditions and stimulate healing.
If you are not sure whether or not you would be a candidate for hydrotherapy, you may be surprised at what all it can treat! Hydrotherapy can be used to treat headaches, bruising and swelling, stress, anxiety, and digestive health. Hydrotherapy is used to treat many medical conditions and is also used in physical therapy and training regimens. And, while hydrotherapy is used to treat specific conditions, the treatment itself promotes general constitutional wellness in your muscles, bones, tissues, cells, circulation, immune system, etc.
Hydrotherapy works by activating your immune, lymphatic, circulatory, and digestive systems. It works by placing a combination of hot and cold towels on the body and then, is combined with electrical stimulation to encourage digestion and detoxification in the body through blood and lymph circulation in interstitial tissue.
