Hydrotherapy has a long history in medicine and is an effective treatment in providing relief and response for many health conditions. Steam inhalation with herbs, contrast hydrotherapy, onion poultices for ear aches, foot baths, neutral baths and Constitutional Hydrotherapy are ways our practitioners encompass Hydrotherapy. The temperatures of water, duration of treatments and the appropriate ways of use in conjunction with other therapies is important and should be advised by Naturopathic Doctors for each individual and their health needs.
We utilize Constitutional Hydrotherapy in many of our treatment plans. Constitutional Hydrotherapy has been used for over a century in the Naturopathic profession and continues to be a powerful aspect in increasing the healing response in both acute and chronic conditions. Increasing circulation of blood and lymph to regenerate cells, balancing the nervous system and increasing detoxification at a cellular level are a few healing properties of the therapy. Colds, upper respiratory infections, bronchitis, sinusitis, detoxification, headaches and flus are examples of acute conditions it can work wonders for. Examples of the chronic conditions it is used for include digestion disorders, chronic migraines, insomnia, auto-immune disorders, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, asthma and arthritis.
In conjunction with our Detoxification and Weight Loss Programs, Constitutional Hydrotherapy helps open up the elimination pathways to increase efficacy.
