Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of disease. 

Hydro- and hydrothermal therapy are traditional methods of treatment that have been used for the treatment of disease and injury by many cultures, including those of ancient Rome, China, and Japan. Water therapy has been around for centuries. The ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water is an important ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing systems.

A Bavarian monk, Father Sebastian Kneipp helped re-popularize the therapeutic use of water in the 19th century. There are now many dozens of methods of applying hydrotherapy, including baths, saunas, douches, wraps, and packs.

When you submerge yourself in a bath, a pool, or a whirlpool, you experience a kind of weightlessness. Your body is relieved from the constant pull of gravity. Water also has a hydrostatic effect. It has a massage-like feeling as the water gently kneads your body.

The recuperative and healing properties of hydrotherapy are based on its mechanical and/or thermal effects. It exploits the body's reaction to:

  •  Hot and cold stimuli, 
  • The protracted application of heat, 
  • Pressure exerted by the water and to the sensation it gives,
  • The nerves carry impulses felt at the skin deeper into the body, where they are instrumental in stimulating and invigorating responses within the human body. 

 The recuperative and healing properties of hydrotherapy are instrumental in:

  • Stimulating the immune system,
  • Influencing the production of stress hormones,
  • Invigorating circulation
  • Invigorating digestion,
  • Encouraging blood flow,
  • Lessening pain sensitivity. 

 Water, in motion,

  • Stimulates touch receptors on the skin,
  • Boosts blood circulation
  • Releases tight muscles.

Hydrotherapy and hydrothermal therapy are chiefly used to:

  • Tone up the body, 
  • Stimulate digestion,
  • Stimulate circulation, 
  • Stimulate the immune system,
  • Bring relief from pain. 

Water seems to have special powers in getting rid of stress and rejuvenating our body:

  • It affects the skin and muscles. 
  • It calms the lungs, heart, stomach, and endocrine system by stimulating nerve reflexes on the spinal cord.

The skin is the largest absorption organ in the human body as well as the largest excretion organ. Ancient cultures promoted wellness using hydrotherapy for stimulation as well as detoxification purposes.

The Oxygen Spa SG 2000 purifies bath water by pumping 46 liters of ozonated air through the bio ceramic mat every second. This neutralizes all chemicals and toxins in the water.

We have an amazing group of medical people, researchers and facilities in Canada. They need us to take action by taking care of ourselves. Our system is becoming  more and more over-whelmed and underfunded. Cuts are in the news far too often. To protect what we have, we as individuals need to participate in Self Care solutions to reduce the burden on our health care services. We are envied around the world by less fortunate populations. Future generations  deserve quality, affordable health care. Lets work together to ensure we protect this National Treasure for today and tomorrow.
