Whether it’s to unwind from modern life’s complexities, reconnect your mind and body, melt away stress, get a good night’s sleep or relieve muscles and joints, the healing powers of hot water are proven and acknowledged.
In fact, medical research has proven that hydrotherapy can be especially beneficial for people suffering from arthritis, diabetes and sleep deprivation.
But, this knowledge is nothing new. For more than 5,000 years people have understood the healing powers of hot water for both mind and body.
In fact, as far back as 2000BC, the ancient Egyptians were using warm water for their health. Archaeologists believe that Phraortes built a Persian hot tub back in 600BC; the ancient Greek philosophers Hipocrates and Plato both mentioned the benefits of hot water and the Greeks built structures around thermal springs.
