Kneipp Path: origins and benefits

The Kneipp path is a very common type of treatment in wellness centers.

It owes its invention to the German priest Sebastian Kneipp, who was able to recover from tuberculosis thanks to daily dives in the Danube.

Sebastian Kneipp began studying the therapeutic properties of water and applied them on himself, arriving at healing.

The Kneipp path is based precisely on hydrotherapy, or the healing power of water to give well-being to the body.

The Kneipp path involves alternating short dives of the lower limbs in hot water (at about 32 ° C) and in cold water (at about 20 ° C).

Water jets can be added to help stimulate blood flow, especially in the lower limbs.

The thermal shock caused by immersion in water at different temperatures has draining properties as it stimulates the circulatory system, tones the capillary walls and therefore has a beneficial effect on the body in case of water retention. Globally, the immune system is strengthened.

Immersion in hot water creates a feeling of relaxation, while contact with cold water, on the other hand, tones and invigorates the body.

After the Kneipp path, a session in the Finnish sauna or Turkish bath is recommended.

Our proposal.

To complete the "walk" within the Kneipp path, we recommend a lymphatic draining massage, which allows you to accentuate and prolong the feeling of lightness in the legs.

The Kneipp path is particularly recommended for those suffering from circulatory disorders, but it is a panacea for anyone!

Furthermore, this type of treatment can also act positively on emotions, giving a deep feeling of serenity and inner well-being.
