Alkaline wraps

Nourish the skin and relieves tension and joint pain

The alkaline wraps leave skin feeling pleasant and help with various discomfort and skin irritations. AlkaWear functional textiles are based on naturopathic knowledge and characterised by their unique function and effectiveness.

The tradition of wraps

Already among the Byzantine physicians (in the 7th century A.D.) as well as Paracelsus, the Swiss physician and natural philosopher (16th century A.D.), the benefits of hydrotherapy (water therapy) were well known and were actively used.

The most widespread water treatments date back to the 19th century and originate from Sebastian Kneipp. At that time, the priest and hydrotherapist treated his patients with “wet stockings” to cure their illnesses.

Dr. h. c. Peter Jentschura has extended the traditional water wrap to include alkalinity and, in combination with MeineBase/AlkaBath (pH value 8.5), perfected it to be alkaline.

Localised relief through the skin

As our largest organ, the skin plays a major role in eliminating acids and harmful substances from our body through sweat and sebaceous glands. In naturopathy, our feet are regarded as “auxiliary kidneys”, as there are a particularly large number of sweat glands on the soles of our feet.

Functional textiles soaked in an alkaline solution are based on the principle of concentration balance: when applied over a longer period of time (preferably several hours), due to the difference in pH values, on the one hand the alkaline wraps, on the other hand the acidic excretory film on the skin, the wraps act like an “acid magnet” that gently draws them out of the body so the organism can push more through.

Problems can be alleviated locally, according to the area of application. The alkaline nape and bronchial tubes wrap, for example, quickly and reliably helps with muscular tension and respiratory complaints.

AlkaWear range

The alkaline functional textiles from P. Jentschura offer a wide range of possible applications. From relieving the feet and legs after long periods of standing, to alleviating tension, headaches, throat and neck complaints, to deacidification through the lymphatic system – the functional textiles are applied locally, according to the problem. Detoxification using alkaline wraps is also recommend for damaged skin structures in the face, neck and décolleté area and for other dermatological problems. As “beauty masks” they refine the skin’s texture and are therefore very popular among all “beauty” enthusiasts.

How to use

The alkaline functional textiles are always used based on the same logical principle: The wrap is soaked in a lye made from half a litre of water and a teaspoon of MeineBase/AlkaBath – some products in the AlkaWear range only require an alkaline spray. P. Jentschura’s alkaline wraps are therefore extremely ecologically sustainable in their use of water and energy.

Due to their uncomplicated application, the alkaline functional textiles can be worn discreetly under clothing during the day as well as overnight for regeneration.

Tip: The AlkaWear range is perfect as a mobile alternative to the alkaline full bath.
