What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is a treatment that uses water to move lymph and blood throughout the body. When the circulation is stagnant, diseases tend to arise. The hot water brings blood into the area and helps immunity, and cold water pushes away the blood and decreases inflammation. Hydrotherapy is used to stimulate vital force and speed the healing process.
Hydrotherapy is used for many conditions such as the following:
- Chronic Illness
- Acute Sickness (ie. Cold/Flu)
- Autoimmune Disease
- Booster Immune
- Weight Lose
During the treatment the patient will lay on the table wrapped in sheets, with a warm towel, alternating with a cold towel. The towels are placed on the upper torso, and the patient is wrapped in sheets until the body warms up the cold towel. The towels are switched between hot/cold in a sequence.
How Often Do I Need Hydrotherapy?
The number of sessions for hydrotherapy depends on the condition, and the constitution of the patient. Sometimes, just one session is enough, however other times several sessions may be needed.
