What is Constitutional Hydrotherapy?

Constitutional Hydrotherapy is effective therapy for stimulating the immune system, increasing metabolism, and detoxification. Dr. O.G. Carroll discovered this technique by combining the “water cure” methods of Father Kneipp, with modern electro physical therapy.  During a session the body is stimulated to dump toxins, pull in more nutrition, rebuild the metabolism and regenerate health.

How does Constitutional Hydrotherapy work?

The “nature cure” is using nature to support, heal and renew the body.  This unbelievably relaxing and rejuvenating treatment involves the invigorating sine wave stimulation (energy) combined with hot and cold towel application (water) to the body.  During this treatment the body undergoes detoxification, tissue regeneration, deep healing, immune stimulating effects.

Who needs Hydrotherapy?

What’s involved in a treatment?

Dr. Wells and or medical assistants will bring you to your healing room for a one hour hydrotherapy session.  Undressing from above the waist is needed for the hot and cold towel and sine-wave application. During each phase of the treatment, you are wrapped and warm in wool blankets, listening to relaxing music in a spa like atmosphere.  As you undergo the beneficial application of hydrotherapy, your body is relaxed and comfortable while the healing power of the body is stimulated.

Many patients decide to have the Immune Boost IV Therapy after their constitutional therapy session to maximize their health benefits.

When will I start to feel better?

Some patients feel better after one visit.  More complex issues need 5 or more visits.  Contact Dr. Wells for more information.
