Hydrotherapy is More than Just Hanging Out in the Hot Tub

AMI teaching HydrotherapyThere is nothing more relaxing after a day on the slopes, hiking or exercising as a nice soak in a hot tub. While most of us treat this as a miniature retreat and relaxation amongst our daily activities, spas and hot tubs are a great form of hydrotherapy. 

Sitting in a Hot Tub is More than Just Fun

By definition hydrotherapy is the use of water to relieve discomfort and promote physical well-being. All temperatures of water and ice may be used for this purpose, and our students at AMI are trained to utilize these techniques to help loosen muscles and aid in our clients massage therapy.

The Romans Knew what They were Doing

Bathhouses are known to have existed as far back as 4500 B.C., and the Romans were well versed in the medical advantages inherent to this great invention. In fact the Romans were well known for utilizing aromatic massage, hydrotherapy and steam to help comfort and heal those with certain medical conditions.

Since then, we’ve learned much about the value of using natural methods to help heal and equally important, keep us healthy. Although hot water spas are known mainly for relaxation and stress reduction, it is also thought that hot water can stimulate the immune system. Cold water is often used to help reduce inflammation and ice baths are popular with many professional athletes after intense workouts or competitions.
