18286 Kneipp           Discovered 1973 Oct. 27 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
German priest Sebastian Kneipp (1821-1897), skilled in the art of healing, introduced manifold applications of cold and warm water and suggested that a healthy way of living conformed to nature. His papers were translated into many languages and were an essential influence on modern physical therapeutics and balneology.
