Contrast Hydrotherapy treatments can increase blood circulation

Posted on August 20th, 2012 by Shari´ Parks

Contrast Hydrotherapy treatments can increase blood circulation, improve general circulation and metabolism. The rapid open/close of the blood vessels encourages blood to circulate through local tissues. This pumping action aids in the acceleration of the tissue healing process by increasing cellular nutrition and water, increasing the removal of toxic products.

Some other reasons to incorporate this treatment into your regimen are:

* Acceleration in tissue healing
* Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
* Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow
* Chronic inflammation

Treatment regimen:
4 to 8 repetitions of alternating hot/cold application
Begin with heat and follow up with cold

Heat for 3 minute duration
Cold for 30 second duration

Don’t have an ice/hot pack? Some effect common home products that can be used are a microwave or stove to heat the towel and a bag of frozen vegetables for the cold component.
