Hip Bath, also known as Sitz Bath, has been an essential treatment in Naturopathy. It has been used since centuries now for its therapeutic benefits. We have customized hip bath tubs which are filled up with water having a back rest for comfort. The tub is designed in such a way that only the hips, thighs and the lower abdomen are in water. An attendant is always present to help out the patient. We have separate sections for males and females with male and female attendants.
A hip bath can be taken with both hot, cold and alternately hot and cold water as per the need as they all have different therapeutic effects.
Hot Hip Bath has shown to benefit problems like haemorrhoids, painful testicles or ovaries, uterine cramps, lower abdominal cramps, prostate problems. Hip bath with hot water of optimized temperature is very effective in rectal prolapse, uterine prolapse, recent rectal surgery, episiotomy after a child delivery, anal fissures and fistulas. It also helps in infections of vagina, bladder, penis or prostate.
It helps relieve pain and promotes healing of the anal region. Diseases like Pelvic inflammation or other genital problems can be successfully dealt with a hip bath. It not only keeps the genital area clean, but also increases the blood flow and helps the healing process.
Hip Bath with cold water helps problems like constipation, vaginal yeast infections, vaginal discharges and leucorrhea, inflammation. It helps in cases of urine and fecal incontinence as it improves the toning up of muscles.
Sometimes, alternate hot and cold hip bath is also given which combines the effects of both along with a few other benefits. It helps in abdominal congestion, menstrual headaches, menstrual pains, abdominal disorders etc.
