Hydropathy said treatment through water. There are many ways water is used as a therapeutic agent. The body weighs only 10% of the total weight when it is in the water. In the water we can safely exercise the whole body with excellent results, since the water thanks to certain properties is an important instrument for exercise.

1)      The water buoyancy partially suspends the body and allows for more effective transfer of weight during the rehabilitation of orthopedic disorders. We can also increase our buoyancy using means of floatation.

2)      The water because it is denser than air imparts increased resistance to movement, providing effective feedback during isotonic strength training and reduces the speed of motion.

3)      The highest temperature of the water relaxes the body, helps reduce pain and help us better perform exercises.


All the above contribute to the favorable effect of water on our health.
