What is Hydrotherapy?

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. Since it is a generalized therapy, it will tonify the gastrointestinal organs and promote detoxification, calm the nerves, and stimulate immune function.

Constitutional hydrotherapy has been used for generations to cut the severity, duration, and frequency of colds and flu and optimize overall health and reverse chronic disease. It should be implemented whenever there is any fever, or threat therein, or to help stop a developing cold or flu. 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 treatment like?

This treatment is calming and therapeutic! Many people find it very comforting to be wrapped up and receive the alternating hot and cold towels on their bodies. Increasing your circulation and moving toxicants out of your body may cause you to sweat or break your fever. This treatment can relieve anxiety or insomnia too. Hydrotherapy is very powerful, yet can be used for the young, old, and infirm alike. Children especially like it and often fall asleep once the second the towels are placed on the back – many adults fall asleep too!

Our Doctors

Dr. Erin Holston Singh

Erin Holston Singh

Erin Holston Singh, N.D. has been in private practice since 1999. She was only 15 years old when her mother developed a perplexing and incurable health condition. Her family found natural medicine, which opened up a whole new world that was both fascinating and full of common sense. It was primarily because of this that she developed a passion for true healing during her formative adolescent years and became committed to finding answers for, not only herself and her family, but for society at large.

Dr. Laura Mourino

Laura Mouriño

Laura Mouriño’s life history juxtaposes two worlds of medicine. As a young child, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent multiple surgeries that left her with a 50-50 chance of developing a severe disability or possible paralysis. Her mother, having come from a family of curanderos, or natural healers from the Dominican Republic, used natural remedies to promote strength and healing throughout the process, greatly improving her child’s chance to fully recover without incident.

Dr. Patrick Healey

Patrick Healey

Patrick Healey was born and raised in California before his family moved back to Ohio. His mother had a strong appreciation for healthier living leading to a significant influence on young Patrick. This especially came to light during his teenage years when he took an interest in natural health and began to optimize his sports performance. While studying Pre-Physical Therapy and Exercise Science in college at Baldwin-Wallace University, he realized that he wanted to do more than just work with muscles, bones, and joints; he wanted to work with the whole person – inside and out. In his last years at the university, he came across naturopathic medical school which was a perfect fit for his passions and interests.
