A treatment with tradition

A so-called "hay bath station" is available in Hotel Heubad since 1903. In years gone by farmers used to sleep in the hay when working at alpine pastures, and they soon discovered the positive effect of hay. At the beginning of the 20th century hay baths were considered natural treatments to sooth rheumatic complaints, hip and back pains, stiff necks, muscle contractions, muscle cramps, neuritis, sciatica, synovitis, stiff joints, and obesity.

For a few years now hay baths may no longer be called cure treatments. Their positive effect has however never changed. Scientific documents underline the positive and long-lasting effect of 7 to 9 hay baths whose effects last from 8 to 10months in case of arthritis, sleeping disorders, digestive problems, and physiological or physical exhaustion.
We are currently striving to achieve a cure treatment classification for hay baths again.



Opening hours:
Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Closed on Sundays.

Procedure
You spend 15 to 20 minutes wrapped up in warm and damp hay. Afterwards you relax on a lounger for another 30 minutes. We recommend a classic partial massage in order to round off the hay bath treatment.

Effect
Hay baths have been successfully applied for more than one hundred years. These baths have a detoxifying and purifying effect, they are revitalising and balancing, and improve the overall wellbeing. Sweating in the hay strengthens the immune system and stimulates the metabolism. Furthermore, the hay flowers also provide great skin care.

Origins
We get the hay from unfertilized meadows above 2,000 m of altitude at Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi. The meadows have to feature more than 40 different types of grass and flowers over an area of 50 m². Only one cut during the blossoming period (from the middle of July to the start of August), and the careful drying process and storage guarantee for the high quality of our hay and the hay baths.
