Hydrotherapy Schools (Water Therapy)

The healing effects of water have been known for centuries, and you can learn to perform water therapy at some of the hydrotherapy schools in the US and Canada. Sometimes called hydropathy, this natural form of alternative healing trains natural healers to use hydrotherapies to treat injuries, illnesses and diseases through immersion, drinking or colonic hydrotherapy. Depending on the specific hydrotherapy course, you can learn therapies of hot or cold water, including water exercises, steam baths, saunas, colonic irrigation and moist compresses.

Alternative Medicine

Hydrotherapy courses are regularly taught as part of a natural healing education, including naturopathic physician degree programs. Accredited hydrotherapy training is commonly provided in sports medicine programs as well as massage therapy courses, where water therapies can be beneficial in the recovery of soft tissue injuries. You will also find some accredited colonic hydrotherapy schools, where you can learn to perform high colonics, colon cleansing and colon irrigation techniques.

Below Are Some Of The Hydrotherapy Courses Available On Schoolsgalore.com:

Colonic Hydrotherapy

Getting a certificate or diploma in colonic hydrotherapy can be your key to a rewarding career in natural health care. Accredited colonic hydrotherapy schools will provide in-depth training with classes in anatomy, physiology, pathology, nutrition, and equipment and sterilization techniques. The colon therapist is usually required to follow state guidelines and regulations for massage therapy education with special training in enemas and colon cleansing. Learning to perform colon therapy takes about 100 hours of academic study and supervised clinical practice, but state regulations can vary. Contact accredited colonic hydrotherapy schools for more information.

Water Therapy

Sometimes called submersive hydrotherapy, water therapy training is often provided along with education in physical therapy, massage therapy, and naturopathic medicine. Water therapies are often prescribed to help reduce stress, pain, discomfort, and muscle spasms during rehabilitation therapy. Water therapists learn to apply turbulent water, hot or cold moist packs, spa baths, soaking, swimming, colonic hydropathy, sitz baths and other types of hydrotherapy techniques to provide complementary healing methods. Accredited water therapy schools offer diplomas or a certificate in water therapy for people who want to learn to be certified hydrotherapists.

Learn More About Accredited Hydrotherapy Schools And Colleges

There are several accrediting outfits that grant accreditation to natural healing schools and massage schools, such as the The Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation and a few others.
