What is Hydrotherapy?
For generations, people have recognized water as a form of natural medicine, one that can heal the body and calm the spirit. Water therapy has been used as a form of rehabilitation by the Romans, Greeks, and Indians since around 2000BC. The oldest recorded use of hydrotherapy can be traced back to ancient Egypt, but just how far back the practice goes is hard to accurately estimate.
The term “Hydrotherapy” is derived from the Greek words “Hydro” meaning water, and “Therapia” meaning healing. Thus, hydrotherapy harnesses the power of water and uses it to provide relief and comfort to those suffering from various conditions or illnesses. It is a treatment for pain, injury, and disability.
Walk-in tubs offer the perfect solution for bringing hydrotherapy into your home.
Hydrotherapy and Arthritis
Hydrotherapy can be a beneficial form of treatment for individuals with arthritic conditions, especially because it increases blood circulation.
Increased circulation increases endorphins and strengthens the immune system, reducing inflammation, healing injured tissue, and improving overall well-being.
The increase in blood flow brought about by hot water also helps muscles relax, eliminating stress and pressure on the joints, thereby alleviating arthritic pain. When you are in the water, the gravitational forces on the body are reduced, improving joint mobility.
Several studies have shown that hydrotherapy is an effective treatment to ease the symptoms of arthritis. However, people who suffer from arthritis aren’t the only ones who can benefit from hydrotherapy…
Diabetics Benefit Too
In a study published in 1999 by the New England Journal of Medicine, patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes who soaked in hot tubs 6 days a week, 30 minutes a day, experienced a multitude of health benefits. Patients unable to exercise reported even greater benefits.
Why? Hydrotherapy helped them to increase blood flow to their skeletal muscles.
Increased blood flow, which mimics exercise, plays a vital role in the body’s ability to maintain glucose levels. The diabetes patients who took part in the experiment therefore also had an easier time controlling their plasma sugar levels, weight and in some instances, people needed less insulin.
There is no doubt that hydrotherapy can help alleviate the symptoms associated with diabetes, and improve the overall quality of life over time.
Insomnia? No Problem…
Sleep disorders affect most people at some point in their lifetime and as far back as the late 1800s, doctors have been recommending hydrotherapy as a drug-free alternative treatment.
When it comes to insomnia, hydrotherapy in the form of a warm bath helps to improve sleep ability, quality, and duration. Hydrotherapy can help in treating sleep disorders through the treatment of pain, stress, and poor blood circulation. These major causes of insomnia are targeted by hydrotherapy through hot water, which helps to relieve pain and relax the body, improving overall circulation.
Warm baths have been shown to improve both the ability to fall asleep and the quality of your sleep, hence, hydrotherapy is one of the most popular alternative remedies for the treatment of insomnia.
Unlike the use of dangerous prescription pills, hydrotherapy is an effective NATURAL sleep aid.
