What is hydrotherapy?
Derived from the Greek meaning for water healing, hydrotherapy essentially means any healing that takes place in water. From a medical point of view, hydrotherapy is used to treat certain medical conditions using controlled exercise in water, which can be controlled/non-weight bearing, or zero/low-impact. In order to obtain therapeutic properties, the water must be heated and maintained at between 28 and 30˚c and be adequately sanitised.
