5 elementsHealth and well-being with Kneipp spa
Kneipp's entire method of healing is based on five simple principles: the healing power of water, the therapeutic effect of medicinal herbs, a balanced and healthy diet, regular exercise and the harmony of body and mind.
More then 130 different applications to strengthen your body's natural resistance and keep you fit. Water treading e. g. is a proven method of healing. In Germany, this method was named after Kneipp himself and is still renowned as the "Kneipp treatment" today.
Medicinal herbs in the form of fragrant infusions, bath additives or ointments acting gently and without side effects.
Active training gets your heart and circulation back into the right rhythm, your figure in a trim shape and your mind clear of worries, best in nature and clean air.
A light, well-balanced whole-food diet leads to equilibrium and vitality. Kneipp put a great emphasis on a healthy, balanced and modest diet. He advocated natural products and, in effect, invented the idea of muesli from crushed grains. In our modern world, it is well worth now and then recalling one of Kneipp's principles: "If you feel as if you've eaten, you've already over-eaten."
A harmony of mind and soul is the prerequisite for physical health and greater happiness. One shouldn't forget that Kneipp was a priest, and for him spiritual well-being was always especially important.
