Proper Kneipp: Full bath vs. three-quarter bath
The amount makes all the difference: in a full bath the water reaches up to the neck, in a three-quarter bath up to the chest. The only difference between the two baths is the strength of the stimulus to the organism. This is greater in the full bath, the whole body benefits from the water pressure and relaxes. The stimulation strength of the three-quarter bath is lower, but this can also be an advantage: Since a smaller part of the body is covered with water in a three-quarter bath, a longer dwell time is possible.
