Hydrotherapy

Relax, detox or energise your body in the bath. Hydrotherapy, formerly called hydropathy, involves the use of water for soothing pains and treating diseases.

Hydrotherapy is used to treat musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, or spinal cord injuries and helps patients suffering from burns, spasticity, stroke or paralysis. 

Its use has been recorded in ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations. Egyptian royalty bathed with essential oils and flowers, while Romans had communal public baths for their citizens. Hippocrates prescribed bathing in spring water for sickness. A Dominican monk, Sebastian Kneipp, again revived it during the 19th century.
