Use Water to Improve Circulation, Tone Muscles, and More!
Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest health and spa treatments around. You can find it today at many luxury spas and fitness centers. Hydrotherapy, a special treatment that makes use of the power of water to rejuvenate and revitalize the body, has its roots in Ancient Egyptian and Roman bathhouses. Today, the treatment can help medical conditions such as arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders, but it’s also a great way to keep you in good health.
Both hot and cold water treatments can be used to heat up and cool the body naturally. This increases circulation and helps the body detoxify while you sweat. The treatment is mostly used to improve muscle tone and respiration in colder climates, which could answer the question as to why saunas are so popular in Europe. Putting the body through extreme heat and cold has proven to have a positive effect on the nervous system, and many Russian steam baths based on this concept are still in operation today.
