It’s that time of year again when everyone begins to experience stuffy noses and scratchy throats. The sneezing, coughing and even fever and headache that accompany the common cold can bring anyone down.
To beat the blues of the common cold, we recommend taking a long hot soak. A bath soak is relaxing and can provide stress relief, alleviate sleeping problems, and even lower blood pressure. Hydrotherapy or balenotherapy, is the use of water in various states and temperatures to maintain health and promote healing. Immersing yourself in warm water calms your internal organs and endocrine system because it stimulates the nerves on the spinal cord.
If you have a cold, the warmth of the water will bring relief to your congested respiratory system. Adding oils and Epsom salts can also relax the respiratory nervous systems, provide relief to sore achy muscles, and remove toxins from the body.
