Hydrotherapy is the use of water to revitalize, maintain, and restore health. These therapies include saunas, steam baths, foot baths, sitz baths, and the application of cold and hot water compresses.
There is a physiological basis to hydrotherapy. Cold is stimulating, and it causes superficial blood vessels to constrict, shunting the blood to internal organs. Hot water is relaxing, causing blood vessels to dilate, and removes wastes from body tissues. Alternating hot and cold applications, also improve elimination, decrease inflammation, and stimulate circulation. Each of these Hydrotherapy treatments are available by appointment here at the Better Living Centre. Book your session today!!
