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

Iserlohn, April 2016
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.

 Contrast bathing and stimulation of the reflex zones on the feet with the Dornbracht Foot Bath.
The Dornbracht Foot Bath is a private spa unit with scenario capability that makes it easy to integrate the luxury of a beneficial foot bath into everyday life. The Relax scenario heats the water to dissolve tension in the muscles and calm the circulation, whereas Vitalize invigorates the body and the mind. Energetic changes in temperature stimulate the reflex zones, while the increasing intensity of the jets activates the nervous system. In addition to the scenarios, there are two pre-set comfort functions that allow the water to pour in easily and safely until it reaches ankle or calf height.

The choreographies combine different outlets and flow modes to develop a balancing, relaxing or invigorating effect,– releasing your body, mind and soul to a unique and holistic experiences with water.

Refreshing and revitalising with the Dornbracht Leg Shower

Four Water Bars are mounted at calf height and deliver cold (Refresh) or alternating hot-and-cold (Vitalize) bursts of water at the touch of a button. The Leg Shower is refreshing after sport, for instance, or stimulating, as deliberate changes in temperature help to boost the defences and the immune system. The Leg Shower is available on its own, or as an addition to the Comfort Shower.

Horizontal Shower –  a unique water experience while reclining.  
Dornbracht Horizontal Shower provides a relaxing massage with water while reclining. The horizontal shower combines six Water Bars that are set into an extensive shower panel above a reclining area. Here too. The different flow modes can be combined into pre-programmed choreographies of water temperature and volume – balancing, invigorating or relaxing.

Like taking a shower in the open air – Sensory Sky

02_Private_Spa Le diverse impostazioni di flusso e scenari programmati ( Relax o Vitalize ) di Dornbracht Foot bath sono ideali per la stimolazione benefica delle zone di riflesso plantare. L'aumento delle temperature scioglie la tensione dei muscoli e placa la circolazione. Le variazioni di temperatura sono tonificanti e, quando combinate con i getti massaggianti, attivano il sistema nervoso. La doccetta estensibile è utilizzabile anche per le stimolazioni al ginocchio.
