Hay Bath

A hay bath is a heat treatment using loose, moistened Alpine hay which stimulates the body to sweat lightly. Herbs with healing properties such as genepy, lady’s mantle, speedwell, heather and gentian are added to the hay. The client lies down on a water bed and is wrapped in hay. Gentle heat releases the essential oils. 20 to 30 minutes spent in the moist hay results in intensive stimulation of the metabolism and overheating. Hay baths are used for problems of the respiratory tract, chill, occurrences of the rheumatic spectrum disorder and above all to prevent any type of illness from occurring.
