This water based therapy has been used for centuries in traditional healing systems. Hydrotherapy alternates hot and cold applications in order to invigorate the lymphatic system, digestion, and circulation. It encourages blood flow, and reduces pain sensitivity. By enhancing blood and lymphatic circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues increases, and metabolic wastes and environmental and drug toxins that have accumulated in the body are removed.
Examples of hydrotherapy include constitutional whole body treatments, sitz baths, wet socks therapy, and compresses.
Dr. Singh, ND uses hydrotherapy with clients who need additional support to help remove toxins and wastes or to help strengthen the immune system in those clients who are compromised. She teaches her clients how to use ‘at-home’ hydrotherapy applications in order to help boost the immune system.
