HS301 - Hydrotherapy

5 credit hours

This class is not a cookbook class simply learning what treatments go with what "diseases". Instead, the student will explore the physiological reasons behind hydrotherapy. We will look at thermal, mechanical and chemical stimuli, metabolic, circulatory, respiratory, muscular, and nervous actions and reactions. We will explore the physics of water and other substances. The student will learn to design modalities specific to the needs of the case. Also, the student will learn what cautions will need to be kept in mind.
