Hydrotherapy, which originated in the 19th century, uses alternating application of hot and cold water soaked towels to specific areas of the body to improve circulation of blood, lymph and increased detoxification.

When we think of circulation we usually think of the heart pumping the blood throughout the body. We often overlook the peripheral circulation system, which includes veins, arteries, arterioles, venules and capillaries. These all play a crucial role in returning blood to the heart and taking some of the stress of the heart.

Since blood delivers essential nutrients to our vital organs and lymph takes toxins away from our vital organs, increasing circulation will enhance these properties. Increasing circulation improves the immune system, the body's innate detoxification system and overall health.
