Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, is the application of water (hot, cold, steam, or ice) to the body in order to relieve discomfort and promote physical well-being.

These treatments can:

  • soothe inflamed muscles and joints
  • support immunity
  • fight infections
  • eliminate toxins
  • calm the digestive system
  • decrease chronic pain
  • clear up skin problems.

The temperature of water used affects the therapeutic properties of the treatment.
Hot water is chosen for its relaxing properties and improvement of circulation. Tepid water can also be used for stress reduction and supporting immunity. Cold water is selected to reduce inflammation and help restore vitality to the body. Alternating hot and cold water will eliminate toxins, increase energy and reduce pain. Adding herbs and essential oils to water can enhance its therapeutic value.

At Greenleaf Healthcare, our physicians individualize your hydrotherapy treatment based on your health concerns. You will notice a calming and revitalizing effect during the treatment, and a sense of well being afterwards that coincides with the improving of your health.
