|The Kneipp pools: the larger one is 40 degrees, the smaller one is 15 degrees. YOW!|
"The contrast in temperatures is most sharply felt at the Kneipp baths where you have a 15 degree pool next to a 40 degree pool. The idea is to spend up to 15 seconds in the extremely cold 15 degree pool before the welcome relief of the 40 degree pool next to it, a hydrotherapy system devised by the German priest, Sebastien Kneipp, from which the name derives. Among the more unusual of the pools is the Japanese pool where you undergo a hot and cold hydrotherapy treatment. Using similar principles to the Kneipp baths, in the Japanese pool you walk alternately through very hot and very cold troughs with pebbles at the bottom which massage your feet."
Darn it, but I missed the Japanese pool! I tried all the other bathing pools, but didn't use the Turkish bath (steam) or the sauna that was available. I also didn't try the swimming pools, as I spent much of the summer in the swimming pool at home, so preferred to swim in the sea at Poseidon. For me, that was the best part of the day.
