Sauna & Hydrotherapy

Sauna_waterWater therapy is a health treatment that has been used since before the Middle Ages in Europe, Asia, and the Mediterranean. Since its rediscovery in the 1800's, the term Hydrotherapy has been used to describe treatments involving water and its physical properties, such as temperature and pressure, for therapeutic purposes, to stimulate blood circulation and ease the symptoms of certain diseases. Hydrotherapy includes water baths, foot baths, alternating hot and cold through the use of sauna and showers.
