The use of water as a relaxation therapy is not a current procedure, unlike our ancestors, the Tayronas of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta considered sea water as something sacred and beneficial to health. Likewise, the water has been used as an integral part of traditional medicine. In recent years, the concept of hydrotherapy has demonstrated its benefits for our health and well-being.
Hydrotherapy is the use of water that helps us alleviate some physical discomfort and helps us promote personal well-being. Through the water can be realized a series of therapeutic treatments that are based on the healing properties of the water.
In many physical therapies, the use of hot and cold water can relieve pain. In general, cold water is used to energize, stimulate and increase vitality. On the other hand the warm water helps us to relax and calm. By alternating these two temperatures can help us generate great benefits for our health.
