Hydrotherapy

Constitutional Hydrotherapy:

Constitutional hydrotherapy is a very effective therapy for stimulating the immune system, managing stress, and achieving total body detoxification. It has been used for years to promote balance of the nervous system, and to detoxify heavy metal exposure, pesticide/herbicide toxicity, and the daily toxic buildup of improper diet and lifestyle. This therapy has been known to change one’s own constitution at the cellular level. It promotes the cells in the body to dump waste products, to utilize nutrition more effectively and work more effectively. 

What to expect?


This remarkable healing therapy consists of hot and cold contrast towel applications to the abdomen and back, combined with a mild electrical physical therapy stimulation. The procedure takes approximately one hour. A treatment protocol generally consists of a series of individuals treatments, specifically designed for that individual. 

Patient Preparation: 


Patients are asked to remove metal jewelry and piercings. Patients are asked to be well hydrated before and after treatment. Patient should not receive treatment after a full meal. 

The Mechanism and Principles of Constitutional Hydrotherapy:


It increases the flow of healthy blood, by its quantity and quality of blood flowing through a given tissue. The goal of the treatment is to normalize the quantity of blood circulating through a given area or tissue during a given period of time, as well as to improve the overall quality of blood in the general circulation. The benefits of this water treatment are accomplished by enhancing blood flow through the organs of elimination (skin, liver, lungs, kidneys and colon), and subsequently deriving improved blood quality through the increased elimination of metabolic waste. 

Constitutional hydrotherapy has the capacity to raise a low basal body temperature, moderate low or high blood sugar, which helps with metabolism and diabetes, and moderate high or low blood pressure. This therapy can also be used for managing stress, sinusitis, whooping cough, pneumonia as well as chronic conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, irritable bowel disease such as Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis and Celiac, irritable bowel syndrome, common colds/flu, and arthritis. In addition, this therapy is amazing to decrease your feelings of fight/flight and increase your feelings of rest and digest.

Low vitality individuals (elderly, very young children), high fever, acute bladder infection, acute asthma, Raynaud’s syndrome, open wounds and fear of treatment. Electrical stimulation is contraindicated with menstruation, pregnancy, malignancy or metastatic cancer, metal implants and pacemakers.
