The use of water as a therapeutic agent has been known since immemorial times. All ancient civilizations used it to cure various diseases and ailments.

In general, we can speak of three types of water for medicinal purposes: “natural” running water, mineral spring water and sea water. Each one has unique and different properties that are applied according to need and availability.

Natural running water is the tap water we use in our homes on a daily basis. Although it has the least medicinal properties, its usefulness lies in the methods and ways in which we use it.

Let us now discuss the nettle. It has also been used as a remedy to flagellate parts of the body affected by rheumatism and to stimulate circulation since ancient times. Its leaves are elongated, with serrated edges. The plant is completely covered in stinging hair. At the slightest contact, the tips break and enter the skin, where they directly inject their stinging content.

If you come across it in the field and it comes into contact with your skin, it will irritate you severely. However, in your therapies, we use it to the appropriate extent to achieve the desired effect.

This moist cold water and nettle compress therapy will be the first thing you do in the morning.

Primero te pondrás de pie con las piernas abiertas y los brazos extendidos mientras tu terapeuta golpea suavemente tu cuerpo con plantas de ortiga. El contacto de la ortiga con tu piel provocará una reacción natural de ardor ligero, que es importante porque hace que la sangre corra hacia tu epidermis, por lo que tu temperatura exterior se elevará levemente.

You will first stand with your legs spread and your arms extended while your therapist taps your body gently with nettle plants. The nettle will cause a natural reaction of slight burning on contact with your skin, which is important because it causes blood to flow towards your epidermis, causing your outside temperature to rise slightly.

By opening the pores of your skin, nettle also prepares you for the next step: rubbing your whole body with a towel dampened with cold water. The change in temperature causes pores to open and close, helping to expel toxins and energize you for the day.

This process is repeated several times and at the end you will lie down wrapped in your sheets or blankets. Your body will relax, your temperature will settle, and you will be ready to start your day.

Our lymphatic system is an essential part of our immune system, and through aerobic exercise, we aim to help it detox your body.

  • If you’ve never exercised before, start with a 5-10-minute walk and gradually increase the time
  • Practice low-impact exercises like walking, cycling, swimming, etc.

This is an essential therapy that helps your body effectively detox by activating your elimination organs.

Laughing is also an essential part of this therapy because laughter stimulates our entire body to function better.

How does it help?

  • Laughing for at least one continuous minute every day gives you a sense of well-being and happiness
  • The vibrations caused by laughter will help you maintain a stable emotional system, free of depression or anxiety, and a healthy immune system

Hot Onion Compresses:

  • We blend 200 grams of onion, add boiling water, mix well and let it rest for ten minutes
  • We then strain it and use the water to soak a cotton cloth and create compresses to put on your skin
  • The compresses are covered with a woolen cloth, and left for five minutes, (they’re renewed three to five times)
  • When finished, you’ll receive a cold-water rub

For our mud poultice, we use soil from the region, without chemicals or fertilizers.

  • First, we moist the soil with water and allow it to rest for a few minutes, then we stir it with a piece of wood or a spatula until its texture is like a balm
  • Next, we spread the mud on several newspaper sheets (previously cut to the size of the desired body part) and spread a uniform layer of mud on these
  • If applied to the stomach, the thickness shouldn’t be more than half a centimeter. If used anywhere else, the thickness can be up to 5 centimeters

Stinging nettle therapy  

  • Soak a cotton cloth or towel in cold water and squeeze the excess water

  • Apply it onto your hot skin (on the desired area) by covering it with a dry wool stick
  • Wrap it loosely with a cotton cloth (raincoat, linen, or blanket)

This bath is prepared similarly to the genital bath.

Once you’re sitting on the table:

  • We’ll give you a moistened, thick cotton or linen cloth (facial towel) to gently rub your lower abdomen for 15 minutes
  • Make sure only to rub your lower abdomen and exclude your genitals
  • When finished, get dress without drying yourself

To apply the derivative baths (seating, genital, vital, etc.), we recommend you follow these instructions:

  • Before your bath: walk exposing yourself to the sun for a minimum of five minutes, to warm your skin
  • After your bath: walk exposing yourself to the sun for five to ten minutes
  • What cures is not the cold water but your body’s reaction to the heat

This service involves:

  • Putting water in a tub so that when you sit in it, the water covers up to your groins
  • You’ll then take water with one hand and use it to rub your lower abdomen from right to left and from top to bottom, on both sides
  • When finished, shake off the excess water and get dress without drying yourself

Our steam bath, also known as blood washing, requires a unique cabinet, so in this practice, we will only indicate blood washing in the sun.
