Why Kneipp Is More Relevant Than Ever
Kneipp has been helping people live healthier and fuller lives for 125 years. A visionary company, its philosophy is just what the modern age needs.
It was 125 years ago that Sebastian Kneipp placed his legacy in the hands of his long-time friend, Würzburg-based pharmacist Leonhard Oberhӓußer. His charge: bring nature’s healing wisdom to people everywhere. Today, Kneipp continues to adapt and evolve while staying true to the holistic philosophy of its founder.
“We are very excited to bring our Kneipp products and outstanding philosophy to the US in the year of our 125th anniversary,” says Christoph Hirschmann, CEO of Kneipp Group Germany. “This October, we will be opening eight shops in select high-end shopping malls on the east coast. Our presence will not only give customers more access to our existing offer and soon-to-be launching products, but further insight into the pillars that are the heart of what makes our brand so unique and so effective.”
The bath and body care pioneer is centered around Five Pillars:
Water: the simplest remedy. From the hot bath to a cold plunge, immersion in water stimulates circulation, increasing metabolism and promotes detoxification of the body. After all, we are mostly water, so it’s hardly surprising water is its own miracle.
Plants: Nature’s medicine cabinet. For thousands of years, plants have been used for their medicinal properties. Now, scientists are looking back at nature’s wonder healers. Kneipp incorporates dozens of scientifically-proven plants into its products. Tradition + proof.
Exercise: Keep it running smoothly. Every moment there’s a new fitness craze. And while active is good, overactive is just as bad as napping through life. Keep it gentle, keep it fun and when you’re done, immerse yourself in a Kneipp bath to rejuvenate and heal.
Nutrition: a lesson in moderation. South Beach, the Charcoal Cleanse? Kneipp advises skipping the fads and embracing healthy eating. Take a simple a nourishing approach. Instead of slogging through a week of torture, it’s all about diet that works long-term.
Which leaves the fifth pillar, which is really what Kneipp is all about: balance. The world has become increasingly fast-paced, and that not a bad thing. But, it’s all about finding a complement to this. Everyone has the “thing” that works for them, that makes them feel connected and present. And each of Kneipp’s products has a unique story that fits people’s daily lives.
It’s a new world we live in, but in many ways it’s an old one. A brand with heritage and vision? Sounds like the perfect fit. For more info, go to www.kneipp.com.
