How to Heal With water: Using Water to Heal Your Body and Mind

Ever since the Romans, people around the world have been using the therapeutic qualities of water to cleanse, heal and relax the body.

 

Did you know that raising the temperature stimulates the production of white blood cells which strengthens the immune system? Hot water also encourages sweating which helps to remove toxins from the body.

 

Cold water is a great recharger, reduces inflammation and helps boost circulation. So take advantage of life’s natural essence and wise up to the power of hydrotherapy.

 

A hot bath

 

A hot bath is one of the most soothing ways to relax on a cold winter’s night. Simply soaking in warm water encourages relaxation and also works up a sweat. This helps to clean out toxins and removes impurities from the skin.

 

A herbal bath is especially good for relieving period pains. Try combining lavender, chamomile, hops and burdock root, and add to hot running water. Then soak for 30 minutes in a candlelit bathroom.

 

Bathing in Epsom salts which is pure magnesium, is both relaxing and an effective detox. The magnesium draws toxins from the body helping to improve circulation and purification.

 

Need a quick recharge? Try alternating between hot and cold showers – just grin and bear it – it works wonders on the circulation system.

 

Hydrotherapy bath

 

Fitted with strategically placed jets, a hydrotherapy bath is the equivalent to an hour’s massage. Although disconcerting at first as bubbles rise up from beneath the buttocks, calves, thighs and neck – you’ll soon go with the flow.

 

A hydrotherapy bath is also a good detox as it is often filled with seaweed or mud. This releases minerals which boost circulation and stimulates blood flow.

 

Jet douching

 

Otherwise known as blitzing, jet douching uses the power of water to pummel fatty areas – such as the thighs or buttocks – into submission. A beautician targets pockets of cellulite, aiming to stimulate circulation and break down fatty deposits.

 

The pulsating water helps massage and tone the skin giving the body’s lymph glands a healthy kick. This process alternates between hot and cold water and is repeated several times.

 

You could try douching at home with a hand-held shower or water hose. Direct the stream of water at cellulite-ridden areas and alternate between warm and cold jets, keeping the cold bursts to no longer than 20 seconds at a time.

 

Jacuzzi

 

The Jacuzzi came into its own in the eighties and remains a favourite pastime in gyms around the world. But did you know it’s more than just a stress reliever? Pulsating jets aimed at thighs, buttocks, back and arms will stimulate nutrients and oxygen to the blood cells which helps to renew cell growth.

 

As a heat treatment, it boosts circulation, speeds up the metabolic rate and helps to break down fatty deposits expelling toxins from the body. So take full advantage of your local jacuzzi and bubble away.

 

Flotation tank

 

Sounds like a dunking session in a decompression chamber, but the reality is weightless bliss. It involves lying in a sound-insulated tank containing a shallow saline pool kept at body temperature.

 

This enables anyone in a flotation tank to enter into a deep relaxed state and experience feelings of profound serenity. It is claimed one hour in a flotation tank is the equivalent to four hours’ sleep.

 

The main benefit of flotation is stress relief, but it also reduces the secretion of anti-diuretic hormones. This means that water retention is flushed away through urine after a float.
