So maybe you just had a hard day at the office, or walked too far carrying your tired toddler. Perhaps you just got home from a rough pick up soccer game with friends, or even finished a long day of yard work. Your muscles are sore, your back aches, and all you want to do is take a second to relax. What you need is a good session of Hydrotherapy. But what exactly is Hydrotherapy and how does it help? We’re here to answer that.
Formerly hydropathy, hydrotherapy it is a part of occupational therapy and physiotherapy. The object of hydrotherapy is to deliver pain relief through the use of water, hot or cold. The therapeutic method uses water, pressure, and temperature to stimulate the circulation of a person’s blood and help treat symptoms of various diseases.
Hydrotherapy has been around since the Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans. At some point, all of these civilizations used hydrotherapy to cure or maintain the health of their people. Egyptians used oils and flowers to bath royalty while Romans had communal baths for men and women. In more current times, hydrotherapy can be found at spas throughout the world. While more medical uses of hydrotherapy are seen less these days, the methods are used to help burn victims as well as rheumatic diseases.
For personal use, hydrotherapy is a great way to relax muscles, comfort joints, and help circulate blood to the entire body. The use of hot water on a body can relax and alleviate pains, while powerful jets that push water and air against the body can massage the muscles.
Hydrotherapy can help a number of conditions that a person may have throughout the day. Here are a few:
- Acne or Blemished Skin
- Arthritis and Sore Joints
- Colds and Sinuses
- Headaches and Migraines

However, hydrotherapy is not just a mental vacation, it has real benefits that can help cleanse and refresh the body. It can dramatically help eliminate waste and dead skin cells on the body. It has the ability to loosen tightened muscles. Hydrotherapy is also able to increase ones metabolism and digestive activity along with hydrating the body’s cells and improving skin tone.
