What Is Hydrotherapy?

Last updated 7 years ago

Many customized spa treatments are designed to have you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and balanced, whether you are receiving a massage, a facial, for a full package of treatments. 

One treatment lauded to have you feeling peaceful and complete is hydrotherapy, a process that was first used in the nineteenth century but now has been perfected to revitalize and restore your health.

  • Hydrotherapy can use a range of tools in its treatment: sitz, foot, or steam baths, saunas, and cold or hot water compresses. 


  • A sauna or heat bath allows your body to sweat out toxins, increases your heartbeat, opens airways, and promotes hormone production.  Which you use is a matter of preference: the sauna uses dry heat and acts more quickly, while the steam of a heat bath will also work on your respiratory system. 


  • A sitz bath uses either a tub of cold water or one of hot, depending on the issue at hand. This customized spa treatment is used to treat aches and inflammation caused by PMS, cyst problems, polyps, or hemorrhoids. 


  • A pack or wrap are two forms of hydrotherapy that apply hot or cold cloths directly to the skin.  Wraps are typically used if someone is ill or injured; the application of a hot and damp cloth to a feverish forehead or chest has been known to be therapeutic.  Packs are more for relaxation and rejuvenation, where a cloth is soaked in herbs, or aromatherapy oils are put into the pack, which is then placed onto the body to stimulate and soothe.


You can find customized spa treatments that use hydrotherapy to relax your body, recalibrate your system, and leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.  The exclusive day spa, Spa Reveil, in Austin offers several hydrotherapy treatments that work to soothe your body and mind, and benefit your circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.  Find out more on our website today.
