Hydrotherapy has been practiced as a healing art in many cultures since the beginning of recorded history. Like massage, hydrotherapy supports relaxation, cleansing, detoxification, and improved healing outcomes. Used together, massage and hydrotherapy are synergistic and more powerful than either modality used alone.

Breitenbush has a long and rich tradition of hydrotherapy. It’s the largest geothermal spring in the Cascade mountain range, and its healing waters haven’t emerged from the earth for 60,000 years. Native people have been taking the waters at Breitenbush for centuries, if not millennia, and Europeans and Americans have been visiting Breitenbush for its health and recreational benefits since the 19th century. 

Breitenbush’s water contains 27 minerals, and its healing properties are well known. In this class, you will learn about the rich history of hydrotherapy at Breitenbush, and the physiological principles behind hydropathy, hydrotherapy, and balneotherapy. You will then “take the waters” at Breitenbush as part of your coursework, including hot and cold bathing, a natural steam sauna, cold immersions, and an optional sweat lodge. You will leave the retreat feeling refreshed, cleansed, and detoxified, with knowledge and skills to bring hydrotherapy into your practice and life.
