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

The Romans invented Spa in around 70 AD. The Indus Valley Civilization dates back to 2500 BC. The Indus people not only had hot baths in their homes but also had public hot baths for the travelers and poor people who did not have private baths. The ancient civilizations discovered that humans need water not only for survival but also to cleanse, heal and relax.

When you lie in a hot bath, more white blood cells will be produced, thus helping you to develop a better immune system. When you take cold showers, your blood circulation will improve. If you drink cold water, your body temperature will lower, thus helping you to feel better during the hot days, or after an intense workout regime. Drinking warm water will calm your nervous system and improve digestion.

Using water for therapeutic purpose is called hydrotherapy. Sometimes, it is also referred to as hydrotherapy, water therapy, or water cure. Hydrotherapy is an alternative medicine that uses water in various ways for treatment and cure of various ailments.

Different Ways to Heal With Water

Here are a few methods to heal with water that you probably have never heard of.
