Hydrotherapy is an alternative healing therapy and has several health benefits.  It includes use of properties of water to heal the body and mind.  Buoyancy of water relieves effects of gravity and reduces pains.  It improves body balance and builds up core stability.

Thermal hydrotherapy can help in treating

  • burns
  • septic ulcers and lesions
  • amputations
  • arthritis
  • mild chronic heart failure

 

Ensure that the hydrotherapy pool or tank is cleaned regularly as you could easily pick up infections especially if your immunity is already compromised.

Practise hydrotherapy under a professional trainer for best results!
