HYDROTHERAPY

subphoto4_2Hydrotherapy is a historical therapeutic method based on an empirical approach to disease and health.  Hydrotherapy considers that the one’s inherent natural defenses are capable of overcoming most diseases. The physician’s role is to stimulate or re-establish this exceptional potential present in each of us, with the help of medicines.

Hydrotherapy utilize the fluctuating stimulation of hot and cold water applied to the body. The basis for this modality is two essential principles:

  1. The application of warm water causes vasodilitation, or opening up of the blood vessels, increasing blood flow.  This facilitates the loss of internal heat  during fevers and  facilitates movement when there is circulatory stasis, for instance, diabetic ulcers.  The application of cold water causes the opposite reaction of blood vessel constriction, which facilitates to move blood  from where it is stagnant.  The orchestration of these in fluctuation is a powerful means to  increase circulation and bring  new oxygenation and healing.
  2. The feet and hands reflex to the  head and heart.  Utilizing hydrotherapy on the feet as Warming Socks treatment can help one sleep better through the night, and decrease nasal congestion due to colds and flu.
