Kneipp therapy | definition of Kneipp therapy by Medical dictionary
Kneipp therapy Naturopathy
A system of healthcare developed in the 19th century by Father Sebastian Kneipp (1821–1897), which was based on hydrotherapy and consisted of morning dew walks or walking on freshly fallen snow, followed by a brisk dry massage to increase circulation. In addition to hydrotherapy, Kneipp recommended light and fresh-air therapies and herbal teas. Kneipp therapy eventually gave rise to what is now known as naturopathy.
