WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE KNEIPP PATH?
The Kneipp method developed in the 19th century through studies by German abbot Sebastian Kneipp. He experimented with the benefits of hydrotherapy from alternating hot and cold water on the body, thereby healing his tuberculosis.
He used to immerse himself in the cold waters of the Danube, immediately covering himself, sweating, and thus creating a heat shock from cold to warm.
The cleric perfected his method by curing some people through the theory of the five pillars: hydrotherapy, phytotherapy, dietetics, movement, and a balanced lifestyle, to achieve a balance between soul and body, inseparable from his vision.
Today, traditional medicine recognizes the benefits of the Kneipp method, especially when combined with proper nutrition and regular exercise.
REGENERATE THE BODY AND MIND THROUGH KNEIPP TRAILS
The Kneipp treatment consists of walking along river pebble paths, where you immerse alternatively in warm and cold water. The water can reach the ankles or up to the knees. The Kneipp Path involves walking in pools about 70 centimeters deep and filled with cold water at 20°C and hot water at 32°C. It can include splashes and jets of water that help stimulate blood flow, especially in the lower limbs.
When you finish the Kneipp Path, you can relax in a sauna, steam room, or warm, enveloping whirlpool.
