Unlike drugs, water contains no active substance with anti-inflammatory, calming, toning, circulatory, diuretic, etc. However, its application in hydrotherapy makes it possible to obtain these different effects.
With the overdevelopment of aquatic practices such as the Spa and thalassotherapy, there is a tendency to mix definitions and no longer know who corresponds to what. This preventive medicine for therapeutic purposes acts on many pathologies, especially when they are chronic or degenerative. Therapy is, therefore, an alternative to heavy drug treatments. Spa treatments are therefore recognized for their benefit: psychological welfare, reduced pain, reduced medication consumption.
The different types of water cure
The classic cures usually consist of baths and showers as well as a drink cure from the chosen spa. In France, we find in the “Thermes Marins de Biarritz.”
Luxury cures offer much more personalized treatments than classic cures, although they start from the same principle. Themes are the favourite elements of jacuzzi tubs establishments. The most sympathetic are called "Thermalissimo" by the residences of the Thermal Chain of the Sun.
The fun cures are mostly open to all and offer original activities. They most often put the family in the spotlight, but they are nonetheless strong in some areas. We have the “Thermes des Eaux-Bonnes” which specializes in rheumatology, trauma sequelae, ORL and respiratory tract.
Health cures are medical treatments that treat a specific pathology in a less cumbersome and restrictive way than a medical treatment. In the most serious cases, the cure is a complement, a significant aid, especially for respiratory diseases. In general, psycho-physical work in the water leads not only to deep relaxation and a wonderful feeling of well-being, but the natural healing process is promoted.
Even a small body of water, such as an office fountain, can reduce your anxiety level, improve mental clarity, and release tension.
