Restore balance and flow of life-force energy with Aquapressure


When experience and sensation combine 

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.


Aquapressure therapy with intensive massage modules

The Intense Massage flow was deliberately devised to make it possible to experience the positive effect of Aquapressure at home with special massage jets specifically designed to stimulate the body’s meridians and selected pressure points.  Dornbracht has developed two special massage jets (WATER FAN and WATER CURVE) for the effective use of aquapressure therapy in your own bathroom. These Water Modules allow you to integrate water massages independently and comfortably into everyday life at any time. 



WATER CURVE provides a soothing massage of the neck and shoulders as a powerful jet fans out into many small water particles and exerts an intensive massage effect. At the same time, it is relaxing and gentle on the skin. Both the water pressure and the height of the fixture can be adjusted for a truly custom massage experience. 



A way to achieve a relaxing massage of the entire back is also available in the Dornbracht WATERFAN. Massage modules with an intensive vertical jet located at the thoracic vertebrae and a horizontal jet in the lumbar region ensure a complete massage of the back at every vertebrae. The nozzles can be adjusted easily to fit your exact body size, and the xTOOL thermostat module allows all outlets to be controlled simultaneously or individually to provide the exact massage experience you need any time you step into your shower.

„Because the combination of pressure and warmth also boosts the immune system and the body’s natural defences.“
Dr. Christoph Stumpe is head of the famous Shen Men Institute in Düsseldorf. An expert on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the accredited sports scientist got together with Dornbracht to develop Aquapressure – water massage for the home.
