Hay bath

Traditionally the patient sweats in freshly-mown hay straight from the Alpine pastures, and the grass could be cut from June until September. Using modern methods health-enthusiasts can enjoy the treatment all year round: the dry hay is soaked for an hour in warm water and spread into a bath-like tub. The patient lays on top, is covered in hay and then lowered onto a waterbed heated to 42 degrees centigrade. Both the traditional and modern methods alleviate rheumatic and muscle pains in addition to stimulating the mind.
