Read on to see some of the top wellness modalities this city has to offer.
Hydrotherapy, also known as water therapy, involves the use of different water temperatures, to induce physiologic changes for health purposes. Traditionally, hot water dilates superficial glands which activates pore cleansing, toxic waste removal, and loosening joints, while cold water closes superficial glands which is great to relieve inflammation and muscle tension. Hydrotherapy includes saunas, ice baths, steam baths, colonic cleansing, etc. There is no pain associated with hydrotherapy treatments. Our recommendations are Lapis and Carillon Wellness Resort. Both offer an extensive list of spa treatments and innovative wellness that includes restorative mineral-enriched water therapies. You’ll be feeling relaxed, rested, and rejuvenated in no time.
Cryotherapy, or cold therapy, is similar to hydrotherapy except it utilizes cold air temperatures. Cryotherapy exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures, usually between negative 200-300° F, for a controlled time. This causes a refreshing sensation. Intense cold on the body reduces inflammation, injury pain, numbs nerve irritation, and is beneficial as a treatment for arthritic pain. The cold shock to your body also cleanses the tissues from toxins and supplies the core with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. On top of these benefits, the treatment only takes 2-4 minutes. Therefore, there is no pain or uncomfortable freezing experienced during the treatment. Both Cryo Miami and Reset can help you explore cryotherapy.
Holistic medicine focuses on comprehensive mind and body restoration. Modern-day holistic medicine combines ancient healing rituals from around the world with massage and body therapy. Additionally, holistic medicine holds that a person is responsible for their innate healing. This healing is about tapping into more than just biological healing but also spiritual vibrations and energies. Some aspects of holistic medicine include sound bowls, chakra harmonization, and healing vibrations. More common holistic practices also include acupuncture and cupping. Unsure about what holistic healing can do for you? The Tierra Santa Healing House and âme Spa & Wellness Collective are our best recommendations. Both offer an extensive spa list that includes holistic healing by trained holistic practitioners.
