The element of water always plays an important role in holistic health philosophies, whether Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or Kneipp therapy. This applies in particular to hydrotherapy, the central component of the Kneipp health philosophy which provides a wide range of water applications. Kneipp treatments were added to the nationwide inventory of intangible cultural heritage by the German Commission for UNESCO in 2015, and are now more relevant than ever.
Awareness of the effect of water is also the starting point for product development at Dornbracht. Our water applications for bathroom and home spa are based on discoveries that are fundamental to Kneipp philosophy. We have been collaborating with Jochen Reisberger, one of the leading European experts in this field, for a number of years.
What drives us on is the vision that every bathroom has the potential to be a LifeSpa: a space giving pride of place not only to personal hygiene, but also to our health. With appropriate wellness solutions for the home, water applications can easily be integrated into everyday life to save time. Hydrotherapy as part of a health-conscious lifestyle makes a significant contribution to increasing life energy and improving health.
