What is Constitutional Hydrotherapy?
Constitutional Hydrotherapy uses the application of hot and cold compresses to the abdomen to stimulate the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. It was first developed over two centuries ago and has remained a cornerstone of Naturopathic medicine.
The basic procedure is a series of hot and cold compresses applied to the abdomen, chest and back. Mild sine wave is often used in conjunction to the back and abdomen for added benefits. The treatment lasts between 45-60 minutes and consists of a series of individualized treatments that are adjusted as needed through one’s healing process.
What kind of benefits does Constitutional Hydrotherapy offer?
Constitutional Hydrotherapy is very relaxing and rejuvenating. It brings balance to the autonomic nervous system by stimulating and nourishing the parasympathetic nervous system (which is needed for healing to occur). This therapy is one of the most effective ways to activate the immune system, detoxify the body and enhance GI tract function (digestion and assimilation of nutrients). Most all conditions are helped by constitutional hydrotherapy, below is a partial list of ones we have seen most impressive benefits from.
