Now Balneology is a study I find completely fascinating. Water therapy is something I have naturally been drawn to (I’m sure being a Pisces doesn’t hurt). Most of my balneology or balneotherapy information has come from self motivated research into Ayurvedic and holistic methodology. Both forms have bathing as a means of therapeutic activity designed to restore the balance of mind, body, and spirit – thus the basis for balneology. While medical science may not always see eye to eye with these more alternative approaches, I do think that balneology does show positive proof that therapeutic bathing is an excellent source of treatment to many aliments.
While my own home spa is nowhere near as scientific as some balneology set-ups, I think my own practices and research have shown quite positive results!
