Blood Circulation

Improve blood pressure in legs, arms and throughout the body.

Water therapy for better blood circulation

In its purest form, hydrotherapy is the use of water at various temperatures to heal the body, relieve discomfort, and promote overall well-being. Dornbracht has teamed up with leading medical experts, scientists and wellness advisors to develop LifeSpa for achieving optimal overall health and relief of common problems such as poor blood circulation and high blood pressure using advanced hydrotherapy techniques from the privacy of your home.

Poor circulation has been linked with lower than normal blood pressure which can result in clammy hands and feet, rapid or shallow breathing, digestive issues, fatigue, dizziness, fainting, and depression. Hydrotherapy using Dornbracht MASSAGE MODULES pushes nutrient-rich blood throughout the body and improves circulation while providing blissful relaxation from the privacy of your personal bathroom.

Contrast shower

Health benefit:

  • Revitalises and boosts the immune system

  • Balancing effect for high and low blood pressure

Time of day: Ideal for rounding off the daily shower ritual – to get the day off to a flying start

Application: Start the application with a warm sequence lasting about 1 minute. Then adjust the temperature of the water to cool to cold for about 10 seconds. Repeat the warm/cold order again and end with the cold sequence.


Sauna shower

Health benefit:

  • Cooling down after a sauna

  • Gives the blood vessels a workout

  • Stimulates the circulation and metabolism

  • Stabilises the autonomic nervous system

Time of day: Perfect for cooling down after every sauna session

Application: Ideally, your cool-down after a sauna starts outdoors. Consciously breathe in and out a few times to cool your airways. Then set a specific cold stimulus with the cascade shower. The stream of water should not be too powerful and you should choose a cool to cold temperature. Start at the feet and direct the flow of water slowly upwards towards your heart. Then go to the arms, starting from the hands and moving towards the shoulders. After that, you can also give the rest of your body a cold shower. Make sure that you warm up your body again immediately afterwards, to stop you catching a chill. Once you are dry, wrap yourself in a bathrobe and feel free to enjoy a warm foot bath, for instance.


Leg affusion

Health benefit:

  • Firms the skin

  • Lowers blood pressure

  • Encourages sleep

Time of day: For relaxation after a demanding day, 1– 2 hours before going to bed (about 45 seconds)

Application: Start at the outside toe of your right foot and run the cold stream of water along the outside of your right leg as far as the groin. Stay there for a while and then move back down along the inside of the leg. Repeat the application on your left leg in the same way.
