AS TIME & BODY WILL ALLOW

Healing with water of all tempuratures 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 both the physical body and the unseen mind. 

 

The early Vikings realized that the body became stronger and the mind settled when exposed to very hot water or steamy air and then a quick, very icy cool-down,

thankfully to the elements around them. 

They needed no textbooks or doctors to tell them this.  It just was & always has been.

 

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,

ceremonial crossings & meditative insight.

This purges the body & brain through the pores of one, amazing organ - our skin.

Complete relaxation paired with intense invigoration. 

This requires no prescriptions, only guidance and one's willingness to participate. 

Long term benefits include:
