Healing and mineral baths
The Siebenquell® GesundZeitReise experience begins in the light-flooded desert of Egypt, continues with different treatments used by the ancient Greeks, and ends with the steam rooms used by the ancient Romans, and the Dead Sea experience of the ancient Israelites.
Please note: Guests under 16 years of age are not admitted to the GesundZeitReise experience.
Sand and Light Bath – Egypt
Heat and light have always been used in different forms to heal various ailments. Even the ancient Egyptians knew the healing effect of hot sand baths for pain in the muscular system and the spinal column. The pleasant temperature of the sand stimulates the metabolism, while at the same time, the healing sand detoxifies the skin and even helps to prevent winter depression or seasonal affective disorder, as it has a positive effect on your mood.
Zinc-alkaline Bath – Egypt
On his campaigns and scientific expeditions in India, Alexander the Great discovered the pink salt known nowadays as Himalayan salt. Moreover, the Dead Sea and the Red Sea also served as “salt suppliers” in Alexander's empire. Cleopatra also took advantage of the beauty and health benefits of this salt. Zinc has a positive effect on physiological functions, helps to reduce fatigue and hyperacidity, detoxifies, encourages blood circulation, strengthens the immune system and promotes beautiful skin, hair and fingernails.
Kneipp Cold Water Pools
Cold water treatments and hydrotherapy are not a modern invention, even though they did fall into obscurity for a long time and until they were rediscovered by the naturopath Vinzenz Prießnitz and Father Sebastian Kneipp. In fact, cold water therapies were used in naturopathy by Hippocrates as early as 460 to 370 BCE. Temperature stimuli are transmitted through the skin, and trigger positive reactions in the body. This strengthens the immune system and stimulates circulation, the nervous system and the metabolism.
Calcium-Lithium Bath – Greece
“The physician treats, but nature heals” – Hippocrates taught and worked according to this motto as early as 400 BCE in ancient Greece. The doctor, who was born and worked on the island of Kos, discovered that the water he used to heal worked particularly well on skin disorders, rheumatic complaints and wound healing. The reason for this was, among other things, the calcium and magnesium-rich mineral augite, which is found in the water around Kos. It also helps with fatigue and muscle cramps, slows down skin ageing and strengthens the musculoskeletal system.
Roman Steam Bath – Roman Empire
A warm room with heated benches, walls and floors awaits guests here. The temperature reaches approximately 42°C, with 100% humidity. As the name suggests, this concept originated in, and was part of the spa culture of the Roman Empire. As well as functioning as public bath houses, these also fulfilled a very important social function. Ideal for heat-sensitive people to reduce stress as well as for flu-like infections without fever, to stimulate and strengthen the immune system, relax muscles and recover after exercise.
Iodine-selenium Bath – Greece
Mineral-rich regions in modern-day Greece span from eastern Macedonia, to the region around Athens, to the Cyclades and the island of Crete. In addition to numerous trace elements, these regions contain minerals containing iodine and selenium. Bathing in water enriched with these minerals counteracts tiredness and fatigue and helps improve concentration. It also slows down the ageing process, stimulates the metabolism, and strengthens the immune system and the body's defences.
Mineral Flotation Pool – Israel
Dream of floating weightlessly at Siebenquell®. Immerse yourself in a new dimension with the world's only combination of underwater music from our liquid sound system and the visual sequences of the 360° full dome projection. The high salt content of the healing waters provides buoyancy, relieves the joints and revitalises the skin. The Dead Sea minerals promote the process of relaxation and act as meditation for body, mind and soul.
