Treading water on the basis of the theory of Sebastian Kneipp helps stimulating circulation and arterial blood flow.
The Kneipp therapy is based on a very simple principle, that is to say it is all about treading cold water, pulling out your complete leg from the water, with the forward section of your foot bent downward. After about half a minute you perceive a sensation of cold in your lower legs and feet, now you leave the water in order to shortly warm your legs. This sequence is repeated.
Trading water stimulates your circulation and arterial blood flow, and it also helps preventing varices, migraine and strengthens the bodies' defense. The mountain streams of South Tyrol, as well as the mountain lakes or other watercourses are ideal for kneipping. Moreover there are public facilities such as at the Fiè Pond, in Varna or at the Kneipp-für-mich® park Villabassa.
