About the product

Simple, effective and helpful

The healing power of water was known back in ancient Greece and Rome. In modern physiotherapy, hydrotherapy – e.g. wraps – is a standard treatment. Physical therapies such as wraps, compresses and soaked stockings accelerate the body’s metabolic processes and blood flow, reduce swelling and alleviate pain. Any overheating of the tissue, as occurs in the case of inflammation, is rapidly alleviated by the evaporative effect of the water so that the patient quickly feels relief.

Retterspitz Äußerlich uses these effects in the most pleasant way: The special combination of effective hydrotherapy and healing relaxation that comes with a wrap application enables a wide range of applications and is therefore not only suitable for the medicine cabinet, but also for use in competitive sports or in clinics.


Physical therapies such as wraps, compresses and soaked stockings accelerate the body’s metabolic processes and improve blood flow, reduce swelling and alleviate pain. At the same time, this treatment has a positive effect on the psyche: it provides the perfect conditions for mental relaxation and wellbeing.

  • with pure essential oils
  • can be used in a wrap treatment
  • helps with a number of inflammatory complaints

Retterspitz Äußerlich is available without prescription from your pharmacy or directly from the Retterspitz flagship store.

How to use

The wrap requires approx. 50 ml liquid (mixture ratio 1:1 for normal skin).

Pour the solution into a small bowl (fig. 1) and soak the linen cloth (fig. 3) in the mixture until it is fully saturated. Wring out the liquid until it stops dripping. Wrap the linen cloth around the affected area, avoiding creases wherever possible (fig. 4 and fig. A), and then apply the outer wrap on top of it (fig. 5 and fig. A). Fix the Molton cloth in place using the Velcro fastener (fig. 6 and fig. B). Allow the wrap to act for around one and a half hours.

Tip: Wraps are perfect for children or people who can’t or don’t want to take medication.

For risks and side effects, read the package leaflet and ask your doctor or pharmacist.
