Hydrotherapy

What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is a treatment which dates back to the 1600s and focuses on promoting adequate circulation of healthy blood.  Our circulatory system is responsible for delivering blood to all of our vital organs, including those that are responsible for eliminating waste - skin, liver, bowels, and kidneys.  By increasing blood flow to these organs we improve detoxification of waste products while concomitantly increasing oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues.

 

Hydrotherapy implements the alternating application of hot and cold towels to essentially pump the blood. This allows nutrients and oxygen to be delivered while metabolic waste is removed. There are various ways to implement hydrotherapy, but constitutional hydrotherapy is the most frequently utilized.  Constitutional hydrothearpy is effective for a number of conditions including: 

  • Ulcerative colitis

  • Crohn's disease

  • IBS

  • Constipation 

  • Diarrhea

  • Toxicity

  • Poor circulation

  • High blood pressure

  • Acute illness

  • Chronic pain

  • Swelling and inflammation

  • Lung congestion

  • Infertility

  • PMS

  • Painful menstruation

  • Diabetes

What to Expect

This description is for a standard constitutional hydrotherapy treatment, so there will may be variations to this based on your particular needs. 

You will lie comfortably on a massage table prepared with either a wool or vellux-type blanket.  You will remove clothing such that the abdomen is exposed from hips to collar bones. Some women may choose to wear a bikini top. The first round consists of applying hot towels for a short period, followed by a longer cold towel phase. During the cold phase, we may incorporate Sine Wave to enhance your treatment. If using Sine Wave, the cold phase is then followed by a dry phase in which the Sine Wave pads are adjusted to promote stimulation in other organs. Then you will move onto your belly before another short hot and long cold phase are performed.  

We will assess your vital signs before and after treatment to make sure the desired affect was achieved. You can expect the treatment to last for about 1 hour. 

The frequency of treatment is highly dependent on your condition.  For chronic conditions, the best results are seen with 2-3 sessions per week for several weeks.  For acute illnesses, a daily treatment for 3-4 consecutive days is recommended.
