1. What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is the therapeutic use of warm water. Warmth, buoyancy and massage are the three factors at work. In a sense it acts like physiotherapy improving circulation, relieves muscle strain and loosens joints and muscles.
Hydrotherapy also improves the cardio-vascular fitness and respiratory functions. Hydrotherapy will make you feel better the natural way

  • Immersion in warm water raises the body temperature resulting in increased circulation allowing muscles to rejuvenate and heal
  • The buoyancy of water reduces body weight by up to 90%, relieving pressure on muscles and joints allowing them to relax and recover
  • The massaging action of a whirlpool relaxes tense muscles, improves circulation and leaves the bather physically and mentally relaxed.

The ideal whirlpool
