Healing with water of all temps and forms, or hydrotherapy, as we call it now, was really the go-to for any ailment at the beginning of times.
Not only cleansing, but healing to both the physical body and the unseen mind.
The early Vikings relied on the incredible endurance, pain relief, and the settling of the mind & body when exposed to very hot water or steam and then a very icy, disciplined cool-down,
thankfully to the common sense of survival &
the utilization of the basic elements that surrounded them.
They needed no books or medicine woman
to teach them this.
This instinct, we are ALL born with.
Natural Elements = Natural Healing
You will find upon researching that most of our ancestors, no matter where their origin, have healing remedies utilizing very hot water or air and very cold water, ice, or snow for physical injuries, anxiety & depression, fatigue, all sorts of women-related issues,

Complete relaxation paired with intense invigoration.
