In Hydrotherapy, not only does water have a mechanical circulatory effect, (eg. Hot water will help relax a tight muscle, and an ice pack can limit the swelling of a sprained ankle), water can also affect the quality of blood in circulation. Hydrotherapy works to enhances blood flow through the organs of elimination and detoxification—such as skin, liver, kidney and bowels—and thereby improvement of blood takes place.

Hydrotherapy can be effective because it optimizes the quality of fluid while improving the efficiency of its circulation.
