Widely recognized for its energizing and relaxing effects, the Scandinavian baths experience, also known as hydrotherapy, is associated with many benefits. In addition to cleansing the body, it stimulates blood circulation and the release of endorphins. Occurring in three stages, just a few hours are required to fully enjoy the benefits of hydrotherapy.
Hydrotherapy is the use of water with contrast in temperature to revitalize, maintain and restore health. The recuperative and healing properties of hydrotherapy are based on its thermal effects. It enhances the body’s reaction to hot and cold stimuli. Generally, heat quiets and soothes the body. Cold, in contrast, stimulates and invigorates, increasing internal activity.
Alternating hot and cold water improves elimination of toxins, decreases inflammation and stimulates circulation. Hydrotherapy treatments include saunas, steam baths, hot baths, and cold plunges.
