Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of disease and detoxification.
The recuperative and healing properties of hydrotherapy are based on its mechanical
and/or thermal effects. It exploits the body's reaction to hot and cold stimuli, to the
protracted application of heat, to pressure exerted by the water and to the sensation
it gives. The nerves carry impulses felt at the skin deeper into the body, where they
are instrumental in stimulating the immune system, influencing the production of
stress hormones, invigorating the circulation and digestion, encouraging blood flow,
and lessening pain sensitivity.
