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.

Zilgrei method

Zilgrei method: What does it mean?

The Zilgrei method, which was invented by Adriana Zillo and chiropractor Dr. Greissing, is a therapy that combines breathing and posture techniques. This self-healing method was developed to treat back problems.

Zilgrei does not centre around a diagnosis but rather focuses on self-awareness and figuring out what is out of balance. With the help of breathing and posture users achieve physical and mental relaxation. While doing diaphragmatic breathing, which is about slightly moving the skeleton, one can breathe much deeper. Zilgrei focuses on holding certain postures. With this, tendors, muscles and joints are stimulated, which eventually lead to a better posture. Zilgrei does not focus on the painful area, the emphasis is on the area on the opposite side. Did you know? Zilgrei exercises are named after birds.
