Many thanks to the text readers: Cathy Fournier, Margaret Rockliffe, Peter Becker, and Sabine von Boetticher, who provided excellent comments and suggestions, and to the other knowledgeable people, including my colleagues Nadine Currie-Jackson and Candace Gerrior at the Atlantic College of Therapeutic Massage in Fredericton, who read the unnished copy and offered valuable feedback. Also, my heartfelt appreciation goes to Bev Ransom for her illustrations and designs, to photographer Ellen Prose, and to proofreader Patsy Cunningham.Shelley, Eileen, Raz, and André were all there when my knowledge of temperature therapy began back in Hamilton, and I couldn’t have done it without them. I must express a big thank you to Carrie, Shampa, and Michelle who were all key in my becoming the instructor I am today. And thank you to Pete S., who demonstrated so well the importance of caution with contrast foot baths!And, of course, a very special acknowledgement of Alisa who was there at the inception of the idea, and throughout the entire project with endless faith and encouragement.  Acknowledgements 3Preface: Hydrotherapy or Temperature Therapy? 7Chapter 1: Core Concepts 11  Properties of the Skin 13 Skin Functions 15 Reaction 18 Temperature Regulation 18 Properties of Water 24 Transfer of Heat 26 Manual Therapies 28 Effects of Temperature Therapy Applications 29 Chapter 2: Physiological Effects of Cold 35  Retrostasis and Heat Conservation 37 Hunting Response 38  Inammation and Cryotherapy 39 Stages of Inammation 43  Why Cold is Effective 44 Duration of Effects of Cold 47  Inuences on Cold’s Effects 49  Direct Effects of Cold 51  Reex Effects of Cold 56  Indications for Cold Applications 57 Caution with Cryotherapy 58 Chapter 3: Physiological Effects of Heat 61  Warm and Hot 63 Passive Derivation 64  Factors That Inuence Heat’s Effects 67  Direct Effects of Heat 69  Reex Effects of Heat 78  Indications for Heat Applications 83 Caution with Thermotherapy 84 Chapter 4: Physiological Effects of Contrast 87  Indications for Contrast Treatments 94 Caution with Contrast 95 Chapter 5: Temperature Therapy Guidelines 97  Case History 99 Assessment 100 Dosimetry 108 Informed Consent 114 General Treatment Guidelines 116 Ending a Treatment 121 Negative Reactions 123 Table of Contents
