Hydrotherapy - Feeling Better with Water

Ultimate relaxation

Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest forms of medical treatment once used to treat diseases and to soothe aches and pains.

The water replaced drugs and other forms of physical therapy used today by taking advantage of its thermal (hot & cold) properties.

This type of therapy uses the warmth and movement of the water to speed recovery for patients after surgery, to assist in reducing stress and help with some everyday aches and pains.

Although there are many other forms of therapy, hydrotherapy is still used extensively for rehabilitation from sports related injuries as well relieving the pain of some forms of arthritis.

Today's Techniques

Hydrotherapy messages can be as subtle as that of a summer rain falling from a sunflower shower head to that of a cascading waterfall massaging your neck and back with sheets of water.

Body sprays set at just the right heights and angles personalize your massage experience.

Japenese style soaking tubs drain the body of negative energy while steam baths create a soothing exerience that some believe eliminates toxins from the body.

But if you prefer the action of the water for relaxing; companies like Kohler have systems that simulate that of a babbling brook, river current and even rolling rapids.

So as you can see there are a variety of ways to incorporate hydrotherapy with today's available fixtures.
