“Naturopathic” hydrotherapy is how we think of our work at Sanctuary Spa.
Our belief in the therapeutic use of hot and cold applications of water to the body for a period of time has a profound effect on the quality of one’s health. Hydrotherapy is the application of water in any form either externally or internally, for the treatment and maintenance of health.
The Vichy Shower is quintessential hydrotherapy, which promotes wellness and healing. Vichy is known to increase circulation through the body, oxygenate the blood, decrease joint pain, relief muscle pain, reduce muscle spasm and cramps, reduces nervous stress, and promotes relaxation, rest and recovery.

Excellent for devitalized body, low energy and stress) or Relaxation (Warm water (93-97 degrees) for deep relaxation. Feel the stress melt from your body and be relieved afterwards).
