The center of Hydrotherapy and Natural Medicine "Anita" is built into a space of 2000 m2 with modern architecture and has several settings in Perú.
Hydrotherapy is a treatment that uses water at different temperatures, although normally alternate between the use of cold water and hot water in the form of bath or pressure water jets.
Hot water dilates surface blood vessels under the skin, promoting circulation in those areas, while water at low temperature causes the opposite effect, the surface blood vessels constrict and blood circulation inside (in organs) is favored. Various substances are sometimes added to water to enhance, or modify its properties. Pressure jets of water and hydrokinetic effect provides a relaxing massage in terms of the angles of incidence, which also improve the venous return circulation.
Hydrotherapy is a practice used since ancient times that acts on the circulatory system and therefore affects the metabolism, as well as on the nervous system. Recall the virtues of stay relaxing spas.
Hydrotherapy is useful in recovery processes of sports injuries, or postoperative. Also, no doubt, it is interesting to stress and nervousness.
Among the schools that we have access to treatment by hydrotherapy spas are acquaintances, usually using thermal water with mineral content. The SPAs are centers which undertake hydrotherapy treatment and do not use mineral hot springs. The centers that use seawater in their treatments, sometimes including sand and algae, are called thalassotherapy centers.
