Let The Water Heal!

The healing powers of water were recognized by the ancient Egyptians in 2000 BC. The ancient tradition of bathing has gradually evolved into several modern treatments called “Hydrotherapy”, a generic term for water therapies which include:

  • Water jets
  • Message ( Watsu, Jahara Techniques)
  • Mineral Baths
  • Whirlpool bath or hot tub
  • Cold Plunge

These treatments use the physical water properties, such as temperature and pressure. For therapeutic purposes, water can be used to stimulate blood circulation, treatment of injury and symptoms of certain disease.

An aquatic therapy session can have favorable effects on the skin and muscles, calming effects on internal organs, stimulates nerve reflexes on the spinal cord and calms the endocrine system. Soaking in warm water will quiet and sooth the body while a dip in cool water, will stimulate and invigorate. These soothing properties of the water can counteract stress and its many effect on the body. It is the perfect treatment for injury, stress and quality of life.
