Explore the concepts, theory and history of hydro and thermo- therapy based on the time-proven principles of the ancient science of Ayurveda. Learn why thermo-hydrotherapy is so restorative and beneficial before and after massage, as well as a treatment on it’s own. Learn a step by step sequence as taught by Dr. John Doulliard, called garshana therapy using raw silk gloves for friction massage. Other restorative applications include massage, energy-work and fresh lemon and salt on the feet to encourage systemic detoxification since the feet are the most active terminal exit point for toxins and pain in the body. The other applications may include muds, honey, herbal oils and other materials to aid in removing impurities, stimulates both arterial and lymphatic circulation, and calms the central nervous system, promoting a blissful sensation. Specific marma points are located and activated in this session with light touch, along with components of cryo-therapy as a way to create homeostasis and balance in the body with the steam. The steam is a form of thermo-hydrotherapy that is produced by a steam canopy that fits over the massage table.

Thermotherapy can be defined by inducing perspiration from heating the body’s core temperature. The steam tent is designed to induce perspiration, relaxation and detoxification. The steam will encourage toxins to loosen and soften within the body so that they move more readily into the gastrointestinal tract, supporting elimination. This therapy ignites digestive fire, metabolic fire and the immune system of all the cells within the body. It brings deep relaxation, removes stress and crystallized negative emotions and should be personalized according to the client’s emotional and physical status.
