How To Create A Therapeutic Bath

What Makes a Bath Therapeutic?
Our human body is a fluid water system. The outer layer of the skin is usually a protective barrier, but when water is in contact with the skin for about 10 to 15 minutes the outer layer becomes super-hydrated and the skin begins to absorb the surrounding water. This natural function is the same principle used by the “patch” delivery system to bring medicine into the body.
A therapeutic bath facilitates healing, recovery and revitalization which happens when the body absorbs healing agents from the water, such as minerals, herbs and essential oils.
Benefits of the Therapeutic Bath

  • Connective tissue is softened and joint pain reduced.
  • Muscle pain, muscle spasms and cramps are relieved.
  • Skin eruptions and edema are calmed.
  • The elimination of toxins from the cells is encouraged.
  • The immune system is stimulated.
  • Relaxation, rest and recovery are promoted.
