Contrast hydrotherapy treatment, or ‘Contrasting’ involve alternating hot and cold temperature in a single visit at Rain Wellness. They can be performed as a whole body treatment or local treatments to a specific area.
Contrasting treatments combine the advantages of heat and cold without their disadvantages
While hot treatments increase circulation, they can also promote congestion and edema. And while cold treatments decrease edema, they also decrease local blood flow and deprive tissues of oxygen and other nutrients.
When hot treatments are combined with cold treatments during a contrast hydrotherapy treatment, local circulation is greatly increased without increasing edema. This of course, make for a perfect treatment to improve tissue healing and recovery.
