From bathroom to private spa: Individual water applications for a personal health strategy

Sanus per Aquam (SPA) – health through water. With Dornbracht's specialised products and technologies, the user does not have to be in an exclusive spa to experience the effectiveness of water; it is possible to do so at home. Revitalising Kneipp applications with an affusion pipe, and beneficial foot baths with exceptional shower experiences created by special water choreographies can be called up at the touch of a button. The different products and applications can be arranged in accordance with individual needs.

In a modern society, where the demands on individuals are steadily increasing, health has become one of the most important human commodities. As a gauge of personal capability, good health it is increasingly defining both physical and spiritual well being, and permeates every area of life. For many people, it is not just participating in sporting activity and following a healthy diet it also includes the use of accessories and apps for self-optimisation – whether an activity tracker, a smartwatch or a fitness band. The bathroom also has an important role to play in this framework. A favourite place of retreat, it has become a personal 'private spa', where attention focuses on the individual and their needs: recharging the batteries, reducing stress and recovering.  

Water works positively, and this is deliberately used and experienced in a variety of different ways. Affusions, washing, baths and foot baths are all beneficial to the organism and calm, relax or stimulate, according to the type of application. Hydrotherapy is a crucial component of Kneipp's tried and tested health philosophy, which was added to the nationwide inventory of intangible cultural heritage by the German Commission for UNESCO in 2015.

Dornbracht's affusion pipe is a simple, yet all the more effective enhancement of the private bathroom that allows the user to carry out Kneipp affusions in the comfort of their home – at the washbasin or in the shower.
A valuable addition to the fitting, it makes life more convenient when you want to carry out invigorating arm or facial affusions at the basin, or a thigh affusion in the shower, for instance. Used correctly, they encourage blood flow and stimulate the circulation, metabolism and nervous system. The facial affusion is also called the beauty affusion in Kneipp therapy. It is a very gentle and refreshing application to pleasantly stimulate blood flow and firm up facial skin.

Jochen Reisberger is the head of physiotherapy at the Kneippianum in Bad Wörishofen, the leading Kneipp Centre in Germany, and he explains the correct way to carry out Kneipp affusions in a series of videos produced in collaboration with Dornbracht and available at: www.dornbracht.com/kneipp.
