Body & Soul Restorations introduces therapeutic bath soaks for home care. Feeling cranky? Under the weather? Dry & irritated? Take a soak! Using water in the treatment of disease (balneotherapy) is an ancient tradition that has taken many forms over the centuries: Hippocrates, Greek physician and father of modern medicine, used saline baths to help his patients suffering from muscle aches and arthritis. Cleopatra took regular soaks in the Dead Sea to keep her skin healthy. The Romans used essential oils, pumice and seashells to treat skin disorders and promote muscular fitness. In 19th-century Austria, Vincent Priessnitz added cold water baths to a routine of fitness and nutrition to cure himself and many others of wounds and infection. The German priest Sebastian Kneipp then expanded upon Preissnitz's technique by adding herbs to the waters. Building on the wisdom of the ages, Body & Soul Restorations proudly introduces a line of therapeutic bath soaks. Water is a liquid solvent. When we immerse ourselves in a bath, any solution dissolved within the water is absorbed by the skin and transmitted through the bloodstream within 2-15 minutes. This is why the addition of minerals, essential oils and herbs in a bathing environment is so effective in treating stress and disease. Additionally, bathing reduces stress, allowing for the relaxation of muscles and an increase in metabolism. When stress is reduced, our body is better equipped to fight disease and dysfunction. We sleep better. We move better. We FEEL better. Experience relief with your own personal water therapy. Welcome to Body & Soul Restorations at Home.
