Hot packs and cold packs are natural complementary ways of treating minor health problems like colds or sinusitis. In addition, they are also very useful to support the body’s defenses and to gently enhance the healing process of more serious health problems. Food items, herbs and water are the main ingredients for hot pack and cold pack treatments. These treatments have been around for thousands of years and are widely used today in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Workshops teach participants about the materials used in hot and cold pack treatments and their qualities as well as the healing power of food items, herbs and water. Participants also learn to successfully apply these treatments. Individual and small group sessions can also be arranged.
