Sauna and hydrotherapy are old naturopathic treatments that have withstood the test of time for their health-enhancing abilities.
Our clinic has a private infrared sauna and a shower, with robes and towels for your personal use. It's a great treatment for high blood pressure, detoxification, immune dysfunction, and chronic pain.
Hydrotherapy comes in many forms, with the common denominator being the therapeutic use of water. Simply ending your hot shower with a 30-second cool rinse is a basic hydrotherapy treatment you can do at home to strengthen your immune system, as this temperature shift stimulates the production of white blood cells.
At Trillium, we do a more intense version, what is called "constitutional hydrotherapy". During this treatment, hot and cold towels are alternately placed on your torso while you lay on a massage table wrapped up in cozy sheets and a warm blanket. It takes about 45 minutes, while you relax in a peaceful and private environment. This treatment helps immune function, but also improves mood, sleep, and pain issues.
