Constitutional Hydrotherapy

Tips & tricks Tuesday! Try out Constitutional Hydrotherapy at home to help you boost your immune system during cold and flu season. Follow the quick guide below!

Take a hot bath or shower for 5 minutes. Get out and dry quickly. Take towel wrung out in cold water and wrap it all around the trunk of the body, from the armpits to the hips. Cover with a wool/warm blanket to avoid chill. Leave the cold towel in place at least 20 minutes or longer until it is warmed. Then drink some tea, hot cocoa, hot drink of choice and reap the rewards of self care!
