Thermal mineral water

Carbon Dioxide Thermal Bath

The carbon dioxide bath is an individual bath of thermal water at a temperature between 32-34°C into which small ‘fizzy’ bubbles of carbon dioxide gas are pumped. The treatment lasts 20 minutes during which the small carbon bubbles fizz and coat the skin as the gas is absorbed into the body through the skin. This strongly congests the skin with carbon dioxide, thereby slowing down heart activity as well as reducing blood pressure and stress on the heart. This treatment is ideal for general relaxation, as there is a pleasant soothing feeling of general tickling from the carbon bubbles. Also during the treatment the heat from the thermal water helps the blood vessels dilate reducing blood pressure and relaxing the muscles. Additionally the sulfur and minerals from the thermal water are also absorbed through the skin where they inhibit the degradation of elastine and collagen in the cartilages, tendons and connective tissues. The carbon gas combined with the thermal water therefore has this ‘double’ effect. The treatment in some of our spa locations is followed by a full body 15-minute dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap).

Individual Thermal Aroma Bath

Administered privately in an individual bath, the thermal water aromabath is a popular treatment in our spa resort of Piešt’any. The procedure is identical to the normal individual thermal bath (See: Individual Thermal Mineral Bath), in that the temperature is between 36-38°C and lasts for 20 minutes. It is unique however, as herbal extracts are added to the thermal water to create a variety of effects. Amongst others, these include: lavender for relaxation, camomile for its healing effects on the skin, lemon balm for a mild sedative effect, and nettle for skin rejuvenation. Not only is there a relaxing effect from the thermal water, but also a benefit from the herbal extracts.

Individual Thermal Bubble Bath

 Similar in procedure to the carbon dioxide bath (See Hydrotherapy: Carbon Dioxide Bath), the individual thermal bubble bath is a bath of thermal water at a temperature of between 32-34°C, which small ‘fizzy’ bubbles of normal air (as opposed to CO2) are pumped into. The treatment lasts 15-20 minutes, during which you lie relaxed as small air bubbles gently caress and coat the skin. The treatment is ideal for general relaxation, as there is a pleasant soothing feeling of general tickling from the bubbles. During the treatment, the heat from the thermal water helps the blood vessels dilate, reducing blood pressure and relaxing the muscles. The treatment in some of our spa locations is followed by a 15-minute full body dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap).

Individual Thermal Mineral Bath

The individual thermal mineral bath is a bath of natural thermal water administered privately in a single tub. This treatment is especially popular in our spa resort of Piešt’any. The water in the bath is normally between 36-38°C (and in exceptional cases 40°C). The treatment lasts 20 minutes and in some resorts is followed by a 15-minute full body dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap). During the treatment, the heat from the thermal water helps the blood vessels dilate, reducing blood pressure and relaxing the muscles. Additionally, the sulphur and minerals from the thermal water are absorbed through the skin, where they inhibit the degradation of elastin and collagen in the cartilages, sinews and connective tissues. The individual thermal bath is an effective treatment if you have a mobility condition or alternatively if you are just looking to relax and unwind. Because of this, we also prescribe this treatment for our guests suffering from stress or anxiety.

Mud Pool

Unique to our Health Spa Resort of Piešt’any is the mud pool treatment. This is available in three of our spas on the spa island – Pro Patria, Irma and Napoleon Health Spas. The mud pool is comprised of a natural bed of sulphur mud between 10-30 cm thick, penetrated by hot thermal mineral water springs, the water level above the mud being between 50-90 cm. The temperature of the mineral water varies between 39-40°C, in places directly over the springs, and sometimes reaching higher levels. During treatment, the heat from the mud and thermal water helps the blood vessels dilate, reducing blood pressure and relaxing the muscles. Additionally, the sulphur and minerals are also absorbed through the skin, where they inhibit the degradation of elastin and collagen in the cartilages, sinews and connective tissues.

It is possible to stand, slowly walk, sit or even conduct gentle joint mobility exercises whilst in the pool. The duration of the bath is strictly individualised, lasting between 5-10 minutes. The treatment ends with a shower and a 15-minute dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap). As part of the Piešt’any tradition, this treatment can be combined with a thermal bath and massage.

Mud Pool + Mirror Pool + Dry Wrap

Rich in minerals and warmed by the heat of the earth’s interior, thermal mineral water is probably one of the most remarkable natural remedies known to mankind. Thermal water is the basis of our natural treatments in Hungary and Slovakia. It is particularly effective in the treatment of chronic inflammatory and degenerative locomotive disorders and is also excellent in rehabilitation programs. Relaxing in the warm water is also a perfect antidote to unwinding from the stresses and strains of modern life. In fact its effect is so good that a weekly visit to the local spa is routine for many people living in central Europe. Thermal water naturally springs up, or is pumped artificially to the earth’s surface, normally from a depth of about 2000 meters. After this it then cools to a temperature suitable for bathing which is usually between 36-39 °C. You are encouraged to relax in the thermal bath for 15-20 mins daily unless otherwise advised by one of our doctors. In some of our more traditional spas, your thermal bathing treatment will be completed by a 15 minute full body dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap). Some of our older thermal bathhouses are true architectural gems, whilst our newer facilities combine the thermal water with sauna worlds, swimming and hydro pools.

Salt Cave + Mirror Pool

The salt cave is a room constructed from real salt and depending on the location this salt can be imported from several different sources. The room is designed to be relaxing and atmospheric. During the treatment you lie comfortably in a chair relaxing whilst breathing in this special salty air. In the process tiny salt particles are inhaled into the respiratory system and lungs. Since salt has an anti-bacterial effect the salt particles help dissolve mucous and have a cleansing reaction in the respiratory system. It is effective in the treatment of chronic respiratory conditions, or the aftereffects of a cold or respiratory infection. Because the body is in a totally relaxed position, the inhalation process is more effective, and it combines improved respiratory function with stress reduction. The treatment then follows with a thermal bath sometimes referred to as the 'mirror pool' treatment. As a result this combined treatment has both the benefits from the salt inhalation and the healthy and relaxing effects of bathing in the thermal water.  (See Balneotherapy: Thermal Bath).
