Fundamental to the original tenants of naturopathic medicine this therapy involving alternating hot and cold towels to the torso is a way to kickstart the immune system by increasing blood circulation. This profound and palpable impact on the movement of the blood directly impacts the white blood cells, known as the powerhouses of our immunity. As a general therapy, it will also tonify the gastrointestinal organs and help promote detoxification.
Constitutional hydrotherapy has been used for generations to cut the severity, duration, and frequency of colds and flu as well as for optimizing overall health and reversing chronic disease. It is also an excellent adjunct to any cancer therapy, since it is a powerful way to reboot the mitochondria, or our energy factories that equal metabolic health.
What is the treatment like?
It is not uncommon for people to relax or fall asleep while receiving a treatment. Not unlike alternating hot and cold sauna and cold plunges, this is a therapeutic recharge to the parasympathetic nervous system that is responsible for settling and digestion. Most patients report feeling quite invigorated and refreshed.
Cost is $80, Treatments are approximately 60 minutes.
