Hydrotherapy uses the healing power of water in all its forms to build and maintain health. Such “water treatments” have been used for centuries to promote healing. Specific therapeutic techniques may include hot and cold compresses, foot soaks, steam baths and more. Each treatment is tailored to address your unique health concerns.

How does hydrotherapy work?

Heat expands blood vessels. Cold contracts the vessels. The resulting change in temperature in an area of the body accelerates blood flow and improves circulation. This improved circulation sends disease fighting white blood cells through the bloodstream to boost immunity, reduce congestion, and increase the removal of toxins. Hydrotherapy is often used for stress reduction and relaxation.

The NUNM Health Centers offers a variety of hydrotherapy options. All hydrotherapy services require a referral from your licensed doctor:
