Aquapressure therapy combines two widely used therapies, acupressure and massage, with the healing power of water to restore your mind, body, and soul. In acupressure, pressure is exerted on the meridians or acupuncture points on the body such as thumbs, fingers, elbows, or feet to achieve a desired effect. Massage therapy uses manual pressure applied to the soft tissues of the body for healing and well-being. When pressure is exerted on these meridians and pressure points as well as soft tissues of the body using aquapressure therapy, it can lead to increased blood in the skin and muscles and a boost in healing power. It can also actually help ease away blockages and tension while you are taking a shower. Problems such as tension in the head, neck and shoulder areas are relieved or prevented, which improves the sense of well-being and helps to increase vitality. Aquapressure can also have a positive effect on the psyche and can be used to cure problems like anxiety or insomnia.
The element of water is especially interesting because it can take into account the basic action parameters of Chinese Medicine – intensity of pressure, location, duration and temperature – all at the same time. The use of water elements in Chinese Medicine to achieve these central parameters can have a positive influence on our life-force energy. But, perhaps the biggest advantage of Aquapressure therapy is that it can be carried out independently, in the comfort of home. Every day, you can do something to positively impact your health – simply by taking a shower in your custom-designed, luxury Dornbracht Spa.
