Hydrotherapy comes in Various Forms

Hydrotherapy is any form of therapy that uses water as the main source of treatment. Hydrotherapy may take the form of baths, sprays, whirlpools, douches, packs, compresses and even irrigation, such as colon hydrotherapy.

In hydrotherapy, water can be used as a hot application or a cold application, increasing or decreasing body temperature and the rate of blood flow. Hydrotherapy is not generally accepted by the medical community as a true therapy, due to the fact that medical practitioners have not studied and documented its effects. However, this type of therapy has been used for centuries all over the world and many individuals testify to its benefits and curative effects.

Here's a new article, written by Opal Tribble, titled " Hydrotherapy: Our Bodies React to Contact with Water .
