Hydrotherapy has been around, in various forms, since ancient times where people bathed in water treated with essential oils. Although they called this treatment “the water cure,” medical practitioners also used it for physical ailments, emotional and mental healing.
Hydrotherapy is when water is used at hot or cold temperatures to treat health issues, illnesses, and conditions. Similarly, rheumatoid, psoriatic and osteoarthritis, colds, depression, headaches, acne, eczema, psoriasis, stomach problems, joint, muscle, and even nerve problems.
Naturally, hydrotherapy helps with sleep disorders such as insomnia, stress, nervousness, and anxiety. Being weightless in the warm water provides both increased circulation and decreased pressure on the muscles and joints.
Whirlpools, saunas, and showers are a few examples of different types of hydrotherapy options.
