Why it works: Hydrotherapy uses the pressure and temperature effects of water to gently massage muscles and relax the body. It helps move blood through the veins, stimulates touch receptors located all over the skin, and decreases sensitivity to pain. Hydrotherapy for varicose veins involves alternating between hot and cold water. The cold water helps reduce painful inflammation of veins. The quick changes in temperature improve circulation and take pressure off of swollen veins.
How it works: You need two bathtubs or buckets that are deep enough for water to go up to the knee. Fill one with very hot water and the other with very cold water. Soak your legs in the hot water for three minutes and then switch to the cold water for one minute. Repeat this pattern several times.
