The traditional Chinese system of paying the TCM physician according to the public’s health status, practiced until only a few years ago, was very wise. The healthier his patients, the wealthier the TCM physician. With good reason.

Chi, the life energy, springs from the perfect balance of yin and yang. And it is this balance that the chi needs to flow freely.

Traditional Chinese Medicine associates each organ of the body with either yin or yang. In this context, „organ” does not only describe the individual organ, but the whole organic system – in other words, the organ’s „functional sphere”. The TCM concept of organs always includes the entirety of each organ’s functions. Thus, the lung includes not only the whole breathing complex, but also the sense of smell.

TCM uses the concept of the five elements and their two basic cycles to represent the strong correlation between all organs and all their possible discomforts and dysfunctions within each functional sphere.

  • Prevention
  • 5 Elements
  • TCM offers

In the China of today, traditional Chinese medicine is applied for simple disorders, functional disturbances and chronic ailments. Traditional medicine is used in support of treatment for chronic diseases and for augmenting Western medical measures in case of severe organ diseases.

Among the Chinese treatment methods, acupuncture and acupressure have to date found most acceptance in Europe. Traditional phytotherapy (therapy using plant-based remedies) is very popular at present in Germany and in Europe. People are also applying Qi Gong energy exercises in increasing numbers.

Our Chinese TCM therapists use the handed down traditional techniques to penetrate deep into the bodily field of the patients. The Chinese medical practitioner concentrates on the aura during therapy. Mind, soul and body are evaluated and included in the therapy.

Only by special training, together with a special type of energy concentration, can the medical practitioner transfer the Qi to the patient. In this process, the medical practitioner must concentrate on the impending treatment in the course of the day through physical and meditation exercises. In this way, the Qi can reach the disturbed energy field of the patient during the treatment, enabling the meridians to be rebuilt.




We will always listen to your soul.

Together we will achieve your personal wellness and beauty targets. Relax and rest – you have deserved this.

Always a friendly smile from our specialized team comprising TCM specialists, alternative practitioners, masseurs, a German medical practitioner, wellness consultants and specialized beauticians.

In case you have to wait a while in our beauty farm why not do so in our spacious bistro?

We fashion your vacation or your therapy more personal, a little more individual and we definitely „unfold your beauty”.

And so we look forward to meeting you!

We will gladly share some advice with you personally on the phone or by e-mail.

Men are also welcome.

Balneo therapy in an exclusive bathing area. Beauty adventure.

We approach your beauty according to our own philosophy. We believe that beauty, self-confidence, wellbeing, and attractiveness are not a question of age, but rather of our self-perceived position in life: Where do I come from? Where do I want to go? Where do I stand?

Feeling good about yourself, feeling at home in your body, is the crucial element in our philosophy. It is the secret of staying fit, healthy, stress-resistant, and productive.

Our skin is our body’s largest organ. It is responsible for many vital functions: it maintains the body’s salt and water balance, it wards off pathogens, it regulates the body temperature, and it is closely connected to the central nervous system. And let’s be honest: Wouldn’t we all just love to greet our mirror image with a smile each morning – simply because we look so good? Don’t we all want others to be drawn to us because we’re attractive? And don’t we all prefer little laugh wrinkles that show the world our happiness to deep creases of sorrow?

We’re here to support and help you achieve your individual beauty goal.

Our spacious, comfortable Bistro serves as an exclusive waiting room where you can enjoy the anticipation.

Let us add a personal and individual touch to your stay – and awaken the beauty within yourself!

Call or e-mail us for a personal consultation!

Our Restaurants

Whether you enjoy our cuisine in the elegant country home surrounding of our Fireplace Restaurant, right next to the crackling fire, in our sunny, spacious Winter Garden, in the cozy Wellness Bistro, in our classic Lobby Bar, or under the large sycamore trees of our Mediterranean-style Forest Terrace: you are certain to enjoy the pleasure of feeling right at home.

Discover the diversity or our culinary treats

Our restaurants offer a wide variety of regional and international specialties, both for individual guests and large groups.

We hold a selection of the finest wines from the famous Moselle region. Begin your day with our breakfast buffet, treat yourself to a energizing lunch, and enjoy an exclusive dinner with several courses – we offer you a choice of culinary treats in the categories Feast, Vitality, Vegetarian, and 5 Elements all through the day.

The taste of a perfect holiday!

Our gourmet cuisine treats you to traditional French recipes and to regional delicacies such as Moselle meat-in-the-pan with grapes, a fish duo served on creamy sauerkraut & pommes mousseline or a young deer goulash with spätzle & red cabbage. 

In terms of the vital cuisine you expect light, calorie-conscious dishes rich in fiber, well complemented with fresh herbs. A small extract: Corn-fed chicken breast strips with shredded vegetables & bio-noodles, game fish ragout served with vegetables and rice, pork fillet in a tomato-basil sauce, polenta & sautéd vegetables. 

The 5-element cuisine is based on the ancient knowledge of Chinese physicians of herbal medicines and the interaction between the individual body and age or season. Food is hereby classified by warming and cooling effect on the specific element-type and energy-state of the human being. The principle is „Food is medicine that is not bitter”.

Our 5-element cuisine focuses on low-fat and neutral ingredients. This means that we offer you energy-balanced dishes that can be enjoyed, irrespective of your constitution. Some dishes for example: Slices of fillet in a 5-herb sauce served with shredded vegetables & basmati rice, angler-fish with ginger, vegetables & mashed potato, duck breast served on warm lentils & salad.

We assume responsibility for your health and guarantee that all dishes are freshly prepared for you using mainly regional products. In most cases we can therefore (given reasonable notice) also prepare allergen-free and especially also gluten- and lactose-free dishes for you. Please speak to our service or reception staff about this! In addition, we offer you bio-dishes with ingredients from controlled biological cultivation.

Our chef de cuisine will spoil you!
