Hydrotherapy encompasses a variation of treatments, including the use of hydrotherapy pools, steam rooms, and detoxing floatation therapy, which can all help to improve numerous conditions.

6 Health and Healing Benefits of Detox Hydrotherapy:

1. Reduces muscle tension and relieves pain

The weightlessness you feel when emerged in water relieves tension in the limbs, supporting aching muscles and easing body movements as opposed to being on land.

2. Treats Depression

Hydrotherapy stimulates the release of endorphins, which acts as a natural pain reliever, further more relieving muscle stiffness.

3. Rehabilitates injured muscles

Being immersed in warm water raises the body temperature, increasing blood flow around the circulatory system and alleviating muscle soreness. The improved circulation will assist in healing injured tissues and rehabilitate damaged muscles or joints.

4. Encourages detoxification

Steam rooms induce a substantial amount of sweating; the body’s primary way of excreting toxins and cleansing the body of impurities.

5. Relieves stress

Hydrotherapy treatments can help reduce blood pressure caused by stress, slowing down the body’s reaction to anxiety.

6. Treats Cellulite

The elimination of toxins prevents the appearance of cellulite.
