Hydrotherapy is any therapeutic application of temperature-altering treatments. We offer several forms of hydrotherapy in our practice.
Moist Heat (Thermophore)
This is a moist heat application that warms the skin and the superficial muscles. It is very relaxing and prepares the body for massage.
Paraffin Wax Treatment
We also offer a treatment of heated paraffin wax application. This provides a deep penetrating heat that is an effective treatment for scar tissue, adhesions, and stiff joints. This feels especially wonderful on chronically cold hands or feet that need an increase in circulation to feel warm again
Cryotherapy is any application of ice or cold water to obtain a therapeutic effect. This is used in instances where the injury is more acute and inflammation is creating discomfort. For this purpose we offer ice packs and ice massage to clients suffering from inflammation or muscle spasms.
