« PURE WATER IS THE WORLD'S FIRST AND FOREMOST MEDICIN »
Hydrotherapy is the use of water at variable temperatures to create a therapeutic effect on the body.
The use of thermal waters dates back to Roman times and the ancient Greeks when those suffering from leprosy, injured soldiers and the sick were often sent to thermae (bath houses) to benefit from their therapeutic waters and vapors.
SOME OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF HYDROTHERAPY
Regulate organ function
Strengthen the body and reinfoce immunity
Improve both blood and lymphatic circulations
Increase the level of well-being and reduce stress
Facilitate the liberation of toxins and impurities from the body
It is the alternating application of hot and cold water-soaked towels to the back and abdomen which produces very deep healing effects on the body.
These alternating cold/wet towel applications have vasodilating-vasoconstricting effects on the vessels leading to improved circulation of both lymph and blood.
