The human body is composed of 75% of water; therefore, water is an indispensable element for our existence. Food and drink intake in our daily lives make us capable of recovering the water that we lose, therefore making our survival possible.

However, water provides human beings many other benefits, such as those linked to the improvement of physical and emotional well-being. Since ancient times, water has been used for healing purposes, above all in the nineteenth century when hydrotherapy began to become popular.

The term hydrotherapy is Greek, and it means "water therapy." Therefore, it is possible to affirm that hydrotherapy is that part of the physical therapy that uses water in any of its states, such as: hot, steam, cold or ice, in order to alleviate discomfort and promote physical well-being. Because water acts primarily on the circulatory system of people, thus reducing the sensation of pain, eliminating possible toxins and waste, and furthermore, increasing the circulating oxygen and providing the muscles with greater relaxation. So, the combination of hot and cold water is perfect in hydrotherapy, although hot water provokes a dilation in the superficial blood vessels, cold water contracts them, in this way favouring better blood circulation.
