What is Hydrotherapy?

The use of water to revitalize, maintain and restore health. Water works as a natural stimulus on the body. It increases energy, resistance to disease and improves body awareness. Temperature change is essential.

Hydrotherapy is a stimulus-reaction-regulation therapy with the intention of normalising malfunctions by activating and strengthening the powers of the body to heal itself (supporting the internal doctor).
