Hints for Kneipp

Kneipp therapy is a non-specific stimulus therapy. It can be individually dosed. Hardening, relaxation and performance increase affect both body and soul favorably. Therefore, Kneipp can literally be called a holistic therapy.

Hydrotherapy uses the reaction of the whole body to heat and cold stimuli and to the pressure of water or the gentle touch of the skin. Depending on the temperature, stimulus, irritation, duration of irritation and day or season stimuli have different effects.

The temperature and touch sensors in the skin and in deeper layers, at the border to the muscles, absorb the incoming stimuli and relay the impulses via the nervous system to internal organs of the corresponding body part. The control center hypothalamus in the brain stimulates hormone production and stimulates the immune system. The adrenal glands release the "stress hormone" adrenaline and stimulate the autonomic nervous system
