Hydrotherapy techniques use water and temperature to revitalize tissues and restore health.
Heat soothes tissues and promotes blood flow to the area, cold brings blood flow away from the area and relieves congestion and inflammation. When hot and cold are used alternatingly, blood is pumped back and forth, bringing in oxygen and nutrients and shuttling out carbon dioxide and other metabolic waste products. This gentle therapy is deceivingly powerful, tonifying the cardiovascular system while restoring blood flow to tissues in need of healing.
