In addition to their role as specialists or general practitioners, spa doctors have additional qualifications in balneology and climatology as well as at least one year's practical experience in a spa resort.
They are familiar with the exact modes of action of the location-specific spa resources and create individualised treatment schedules. In addition to analysing your medical history and conducting a thorough examination, spa doctors prepare your personalised treatment plan at the start of your stay. This plan incorporates carefully coordinated combinations of medical services, taking into account local and/or spa-specific remedies. In Bad Nauheim, brine and Kneipp applications are part of the specific remedies.
Bad Nauheim's natural remedy is brine. What are its effects?
Brine improves the cardiovascular status and lowers blood pressure. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and promotes blood circulation in the skin. It is also used to treat rheumatic diseases and in therapy for skin and lung conditions.
How can brine be combined with Kneipp's teachings?
This can be combined perfectly! Kneipp's water applications - which are not only administered as cold therapy - complement each other in their effects on the mobility and elasticity of the vascular system and the adaptation of the immune system, especially in spa treatments.
How would you describe a “healthy day” in Bad Nauheim?
After breakfast, I recommend a walk in the Health Garden. An arm plunge in cold water invigorates you for the day and works like a second cup of coffee. Then, you can unwind in the herb garden or visit the inhalatorium at the blackthorn graduation tower I. Before lunch, you can make use of the terrain cure trails. Following all that, it's advisable to rest for at least an hour. After a light dinner, visit one of the Kneipp facilities to “wade in the water in good Kneipp style”. This promotes physical and mental relaxation and contributes to good sleep and a restful night.
