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.
