Hydrotherapy, or water cure therapy, is a system of healing involving the application of water through various methods, temperatures and pressures.
Hydrotherapy helps improve the function of the entire circulatory and nervous system. There are different techniques used for hydrotherapy some of the more common ones are poultice, douche, hot or cold pack, sauna and plunge pool, shower, baths or colonic irrigation.
Water may be used hot or cold including ice. With an inflammatory condition cold water has the effect of drawing blood away from the area of inflammation. The use of heat opens pores, and slows the body to sweat out impurities.

You can add to the benefit of Hydrotherapy by using herbs and/or essential oils and salts.
