Apart from water and medicinal herbs, Sebastian Kneipp made active use of other elements related to human health. The result of his work was his 5-pillar philosophy. It becomes a holistic approach to healthy living through the use and interaction of five pillars, which are water, plants, exercise, nutrition and balance.
The Kneipp philosophy has been practiced in the Dussnang Water Healing Institute, built by Father Eugster, since 1888. Later, the institution was sold to the Benedictine Order, who also worked followed Kneipp’s holistic life concept.
At Dussnang, we enjoy the long-standing Kneipp-inspired traditions. You are welcome to have a recreation stay with us.
We do focus on our every guest. At first, you will work out a treatment plan together with our doctors depending on your needs. You will also receive a personal Kneipp guide.
During your stay, one relaxing or active exercise of 30 minutes long is included every day.
