The thermal hydrotherapeutic experience is amazing; Your options range from a basic 30 minute relaxation Spa Bath through to specialist relaxation, slimming, decongesting and tonifying therapies. In addition a luxurious therapeutic spa bath can be added into any other facial, body or relation treatment we offer and in most cases only extend the treatment time by 30 minutes.
Hydrotherapy's recuperative and healing properties are based on its mechanical and/or thermal effects, they exploit;
1). the body's reaction to hot and cold stimuli,
2). the protracted application of heat,
3). the pressure exerted by the water, and
4). the sensation delivered by a combination of these properties.
During water therapies, nerves carry impulses felt at the skin deeper into the body, where they are instrumental in stimulating the immune system, influencing the production of stress hormones, invigorating the circulation and digestion, encouraging blood flow, and lessening pain sensitivity.
Generally, heat quiets and soothes the body, slowing down the activity of internal organs. Cold, in contrast, stimulates and invigorates, increasing internal activity. If you are experiencing tense muscles and anxiety from your stress, a hot shower or bath is in order. If you are feeling tired and stressed out, you might want to try taking a warm shower or bath followed by a short, invigorating cold shower to help stimulate your body and mind.
When you submerge yourself in a bath, a pool, or a whirlpool, you experience a kind of weightlessness. Your body is relieved from the constant pull of gravity. Water also has a hydrostatic effect. It has a massage-like feeling as the water gently kneads your body. Water, in motion, stimulates touch receptors on the skin, boosting blood circulation and releasing tight muscles.
