The full bath

Frau entspannt beim Baden

Do you not do things only halfway? Then you would surely enjoy a full bath. This is recommended about once a week, especially during the unpleasant time of the year.
The bath should not last longer than 15 to a maximum of 20 minutes. A temperature of 37 to 38 degrees Celsius (98 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit) is ideal.
You can vary the effects of the bath yourself. Depending on the bath additive, there is time for relaxation (lemon balm), to boost circulation (rosemary), or to do something good for your muscles and joints (juniper) and much more.

To stabilize the cardiovascular system, you can perform a cold knee affusion after the bath or even have a brief cold whole-body shower.
The three-quarters bath
In contrast to a full bath in which the water goes up to the neck, the water only reaches the chest in a three-quarters bath. The difference between the two baths is the degree of stimulus to the organism. This stimulus is greater in the case of the full bath in which the entire body benefits from the water pressure and relaxes. The degree of stimulus is less in the case of the three-quarters bath but it can still be advantageous: For example, the circulatory system is less stressed than in the case of a full bath.

If you suffer from heart disease, you should consult your doctor before taking either of the baths. You should also use caution with the bath if you suffer from varicose veins or inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. The same applies if you have low blood pressure. For this reason, use caution when getting out of the tub, especially in the case of a full bath.
