Carbon Dioxide Bath (in normal water)

The carbon dioxide bath is an individual bath of normal water at a temperature between 32-34°C into which small ‘fizzy’ bubbles of carbon dioxide gas are pumped. The same carbon dioxide used in the food industry is pumped into the water through a tube. At our spa resort of Marienbad, natural gas is used, making this a signature treatment (See Balneotherapy: Individual Mineral Bath). The treatment can last between 10-20 minutes, during which you lie relaxed as small carbon bubbles caress and coat your skin while the gas is absorbed into the body. Medically, the carbon strongly congests the skin with carbon dioxide, thereby slowing down heart activity, reducing blood pressure and stress on the heart and improving blood circulation. This treatment is ideal for general relaxation, as there is a pleasant soothing feeling of general tickling from the carbon bubbles. The treatment in some of our spa locations is followed by a full body 15-minute dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap).

Colon Hydrotherapy

Also known as colonic irrigation, this practice was reputedly used in Ancient Egypt, China and India. However, the method common in the West today has its origins in 19th century European Spas. The treatment is conducted lying down, whilst warm purified water is introduced into the colon via the rectum. Once this is completed, the therapist uses special massage techniques to stimulate the release of the water. The whole process takes between 30-45 minutes and has the effect of cleansing the bowels from built-up toxins, bacteria, parasites and other unwanted substances.

Complete Oil Bath

The Complete Oil Bath has both a moisturizing effect and also retains water in the skin for a considerable time after the treatment.  According to the status and type of skin dermatitis there are two possibilities. In the first oil additives with higher dose of emulsifiers are added to the water, these disperse particles of oil evenly throughout the bath. In the second the oil is added in a smaller proportion and therefore only remains on the surface of the bath.  At the end of the treatment the oil covers the whole surface of dry skin, locking in the moisture.
