Kneipp hydrotherapy

Kneipp therapy is a treatment based on the alternation of hot and cold water. The method was invented by the German priest Sebastian Kneipp in the 19th century and has been refined over the years by modern science. It is known for its many health benefits.

Let's find out more about the Kneipp cure.

The benefits of the Kneipp path

Kneipp therapy can bring several benefits to body and mind:

•   Improves blood circulation
The alternation of warm and cold water stimulates the circulation, reduces swelling and relives the feeling of heavy legs.
•   Strengthens the immune system
Cold water stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are important for fighting infections.
•   Relieves stress
The Kneipp path can be a great way to relax and relieve stress.
•   Reduces water retention
Cold water helps reduce fluid retention, which can cause swelling and cellulite.
•    Drains fluids
Alternating applications of hot and cold water activate the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing excess fluid.

Instructions for the Kneipp path

The Kneipp path usually consists of two parallel pools with river stones on the ground. One is filled with warm water and the other one with cold water. To perform the circuit, you must walk through the two pools, spending about 30 seconds in the warm water and then 20 seconds in the cold water. It is important to alternate immersion in hot and cold water for at least 10 times.

What to do after the Kneipp pools?

After the Kneipp course, you can relax during a steam bath or a draining massage to flush out excess toxins.


The Kneipp path is one of the most popular therapeutic treatments in spa areas. It is a simple and natural way to improve blood circulation, reduce pain, relieve stress and boost the immune system.
