Hydrotherapy works by transferring the sensation on the skin to various nerve impulses throughout the body.

This could probably explain why one feels rejuvenated and instantly revived after a day at the spa, or even after a swim in the pool.

Because Hydrotherapy involves water and “water”, has a hydrostatic effect. That feather-light massage it creates stimulates touch receptors on the skin, boosting blood circulation.

For instance, a warm bath (ranges from 35ºC to 40ºC) relaxes the body and soothes sore areas. It increases blood circulation in skin; promotes cell renewal, while eliminating toxins through perspiration and lymphatic drainage.

Cold water on the other hand, stimulates and invigorates, increasing pulse rate. A cold bath (between 10ºC to 21ºC) is extremely exhilarating and increases your metabolism rate. If you are feeling tired, you might want to try taking a warm shower or bath followed by short, invigorating cold shower to help stimulate your body and mind.
