About Kneipp Therapy:

Kneipp therapy grew out of the philosophy and practice of Sebastian Kneipp, a priest and somewhat reluctant healthcare provider who lived from 1821-1897 in Bavaria, Germany. His methods of self treatment using simple yet effective cold water and contrast applications as well as readily available natural therapeutics were effective and provided access to care for thousands who were lacking. His methods are the basis for the American Natural Health movement of the 20th and 21st century.

                                                                                               What Does the Schedule Look Like

We will begin the course on Monday June 24th at 5:30 pm with a 3-hour discussion with Drs. Coplin and Welliver introducing Kneipp Therapy and its use in the clinical setting.

June 25-27th we will begin at 9 am and end at 5 pm, giving us 3 full days with Uwe Steinacher’s didactic and practical instruction, supported by Drs. Coplin and Welliver.

Our final day, June 28th, includes practice and discussion with all 3 instructors, and will end at noon. Each student will receive a certificate of completion. ND CEs are pending for this course.

                                                                                              What to Expect

This course will be a very “hands-on” course. Every student will be able to practice the skills of Kneipp wraps and the experience of being wrapped.

This may be done in a bathing suit, so it is recommended that you bring two bathing suits. One for soaking, and one for practice (No one enjoys putting on a wet bathing suit!). If you are comfortable being wrapped in your undergarments, that is an option too. A cover-up or wrap can also be useful.
