What is hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is the use of water to achieve therapeutic effects. Our bodies are primarily made of water so it shouldn’t surprise us that water can have powerful effects on our health. We can use different temperatures of water to change how our muscles, skin, organs and immune systems function. Hydrotherapy can relieve pain, reduce muscle spasms, improve range of motion, increase circulation, improve immune function, increase energy and promote detox.
