The term Hydrotherapy is coined from the Greek words - "Hydro" meaning "water" and "Therapeia" meaning "Healing". As it suggests, hydrotherapy is a method of using the physical aspect of water for medical and relaxing treatments. The buoyancy of water effect minimises the efforts of gravity on weight bearing joints, spinal column and ligaments. The entire therapy improves balance and co-ordination.
The benefits of "water healing" or hydrotherapy have been recognised for thousands of years. It is one of the oldest and safest methods for treating many common ailments.
Hydrotherapy has been greatly emphasised as a mode of healing programme in our Indian Civilisation.
HOW IT WORKS...
Water has an effect similar to a soothing massage on muscles by bringing more oxygen to the injured area. Movements that are extremely painful outside water, can be conducted in water with minimum pain. Running, walking and floating in water have been found to be more beneficial than most other activities.
