Little ABC for your spa-break questions ...

In their treatment discriptions, wellness hotels often use technical terms, which are hard to understand for potential guests. We have therefore collected and defined the most relevant terms in our small wellness ABC. A tip: Our wellness dictionary also supports word requests. You don't need to know the exact wording.

Aschner Therapy

The Aschner Therapy 

describes the treatment methods of so-called "humoral medicine" (Latin humor = liquid, moisture). Humoral medicine describes a medical explanatory model that has prevailed from antiquity to the nineteenth century, in which the causes of the disease have been linked to an incorrect composition of the body fluids (blood, yellow and black bile and mucus) and an accumulation of pollutants. This incorrect composition of the juices is called dyscrasia. It is responsible for many chronic degenerative diseases, including metabolic diseases, rheumatic diseases and cancer. The body juices have to be balanced and the pollutants excreted.

From today's naturopathic point of view, drainage procedures increase the excretion and detoxification processes, relieve the metabolism, cleanse the blood and lymph and relieve pain.

Typical Aschner Therapies are

 e.g. Bloodletting, cupping or a leech therapy, but also laxative measures such as Glauber's salt, castor oil or enemas (colon hydro therapy) are part of this. Furthermore, the body should also be detoxified by increased urination and increased sweat secretion (sauna, sweat packs and sweat-inducing teas).

The Aschner Therapy is supposed to activate self-healing 

by stimulating the body's own detoxification systems of the liver, kidney, skin and intestine. By supporting and improving the function of these detoxification organs, disruptive factors can be eliminated, blockages can be resolved and healing can be supported.
