Constitutional hydrotherapy uses the combination of alternating hot and cold water and low-voltage electrical sine wave activity for health purposes. Overall, the treatment acts as a sort of thermal pump which helps to improve delivery of oxygen, nutrients and repair molecules while speeding the removal of metabolic wastes, inflammatory substances and environmental toxins from the body. The overall therapy also promotes relaxation and stress relief.
Hot towels are applied to the chest and abdomen in several warm layers. When the body and skin is sufficiently warm, the hot towels are replaced with a thin cold towel that is covered with layers of wool blanket. The body quickly warms the towel, and during this phase, low volt massage currents may be used. A dry phase with electrical stimulation to the abdomen and back area may follow. The hot, cold, and warming towel phases will be repeated on the back.
The effect of the hot applications dilates the arterial blood vessels. The short cold towel applications constrict blood vessels. The sine-wave massage currents stimulate the muscles and nerves moving venous blood and lymph flow. This combined effect enhances the healing capacity of the body in many conditions, and often is used in conjunction with other therapies.
A constitutional hydrotherapy treatment itself lasts between 45-60 minutes. Additional time is taken in evaluation before and after treatment. Treatments at Chambers Clinic are scheduled in 90-minute intervals to allow for ample time for our patients.
Your Chambers Clinic doctor determines the number of constitutional hydrotherapy treatments for your particular situation. Constitutional hydrotherapy often is prescribed anywhere from 2-5 times per week depending on the severity of the case or the speed needed to effect change. Acute upper or lower respiratory infections may require only one or two treatments. Many chronic conditions will have treatments prescribed in longer series.

A year ago I have suffered severe pain due to arthritis in my neck. I first tried a local chiropractor for 3 months with absolutely no results, just more pain. I made an appointment with Doctor Chambers finally, and he had me get an MRI. ...he discovered the inflamed nerve irritated by my degenerating bones, and recommended a treatment. I've had 2 treatments now (injecting platelets into the target area) and the pain and mobility is 80% better. The knowledge Doctor Chambers has and shared far exceeds anybody else I have talked to so far. His staff is visibly caring, and the facility gives off a feeling of gentle healing. It has a good energy. Chambers Clinic offers many services and based on what I've experienced and seen, it is well worth the visit for any number of ailments, or even just to boost your health. I cannot give 10 stars, so I'll have to settle with a five star review.
