They converted the abbey into a five-star luxury spa that offers a range of services including massage, fitness classes with an expert chi kung Chinese breathing exercises, and high pressure mineral water jet “therapy”.
In the mineral water jet therapy, nuns use high pressure water jets to spray guests with chilled mineral water. The nuns say that the treatment stimulates the skin – and presumably the cold water has the added benefit of keeping the more easily stimulated from getting any unwholesome ideas.
If you are heading to Austria and in the mood for an invigorating ice-water massage, the Sisters of the Cistercian Order will take care of you for a very reasonable $150 per night. [Croatian Times]
