Description


COURSE DESCRIPTION

3 Module Online Webinar Series


Dr Kate Broderick’s Naturopathic Hydrotherapy Series ONE introduced the core principles and techniques of Hydrotherapy. It focused on generalised stimulation of the body’s self-healing mechanisms via the autonomic nervous system and circulatory tonification. The focus of the second series will be the therapeutic use of water to address dysfunction in specific tissues and organs, thus stimulating healing in a more targeted way.

Naturopathic Hydrotherapy is remarkably effective in a wide range of conditions. It is one of our most useful tools to modify parasympathetic/sympathetic neural balance and most of our autonomic functions. It is an old naturopathic practice that is in danger of being lost. By the end of this short course, you will be familiar with an array of useful and easy to administer naturopathic hydrotherapy treatments that target specific tissues or organs and be able to incorporate them into your patient treatment plans. Completion of the first webinar series is recommended in order to fully understand the physiology and mechanisms of actions that underlie these treatments.

Naturopathic Hydrotherapy is an economical, safe and very effective way to boost your clinical outcomes for many of the most common presentations that your patients are seeing you for.
