If you are staying with us on a traditional or therapeutic spa package you will, upon arrival, be booked in for a check up with one of our spa doctors. The aim of this initial consultation is to check your health complaints, health history, that the treatments prescribed are safe and effective. If necessary the doctor may prescribe additional examinations and/or laboratory tests.
At the end of your stay our spa doctors will conduct a final consultation to ensure that the treatments prescribed have gone according to plan. This is also an opportunity for the doctor to give you the necessary medical and lifestyle advice to help continue the improvement in your health once you leave.
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).
This treatment is taken in a hot bath at a temperature of 35-37°C and a relaxing massage with currents of whirling water. The effects are improved blood circulation and a loosening of muscle and joint stiffness. Aroma oils and essences can be added to the water to enhance the experience. The treatment can last between 10-20 minutes.
The treatment is given in a bath at a temperature of 35-37°C. A powerful, pressurised (0.5 – 2.0 atm) jet of water is released through a hose underwater and directed manually by the therapist to the main muscle groups from a distance of between 10 and 15 cm and at an angle, in strokes. By varying the distance and angle, it is possible to change the intensity of the water jet pressure on the body. The aim of this deep massage is to release stiffness in the muscles and connective tissues and to partially release the joints. It is also probably one of the most effective spa treatments for relaxation available.
A qualified physiotherapist conducts all individual therapeutic exercise sessions as prescribed by a doctor. These classes are designed to maintain or restore physical mobility as well as develop functional capabilities. The therapy includes active and passive movements as well as mobilisation and manipulation. Other methods may include visualisation, active muscle contraction, active assisted movements and free active movement. An inseparable part of these classes are breathing exercises in addition to training for balance, strength and flexibility.
After the doctor’s examination and diagnosis, a specific area of the body is prescribed for massage. The aim is to stimulate blood circulation in this specific area, release muscle tension and improve the mobility of the connective tissue and joint.
Water rehabilitation, perhaps better known as ‘physiotherapy in water’ or ‘hydrokinesistherapy’ is conducted in water at a temperature of approximately 33 °C. In most of our spas the water used will be natural thermal water and the exercises lead by a qualified physiotherapist. Because of the buoyancy, resistance and chemical effects of the water, it is very effective for persons with degenerative diseases of weight-carrying joints in addition to post operative rehabilitation. Water rehabilitation is either conducted in groups with guests of a similar diagnostic profile or even individually.
Ultrasound uses sounds of high frequency and intensity that are converted to mechanical and heat energy. 30% of this mechanical energy results in a type of micro-massage in the tissues of the body that are targeted, resulting in heat generation. The treatment is administered by placing the head of the device in continuous or pulse application into the skin, which has been given a coating of paraffin oil or conductive gel. The depth of impact varies between 2-6 cm and the effect stimulates the molecules, causing subsequent chemical reactions. It also improves blood circulation as well as nutrition of the tissues with an analgesic and antispastic effect. The site of application needs to be prescribed by a doctor, but it is generally an area that is in pain or in need of relief.
Autogen training is one of the most well-founded and most researched relaxation techniques, and works by strengthening the natural self-healing mechanisms of the body. This is the only “mind and body” technique whose origins are the results of medical research. Autogen training enables controlling stress by teaching relaxation of the autonomic nervous system. The “switch” to a relaxed state can be achieved through well-performed practice; this means that we are able to regulate our physical and psychological self according to our needs. It is recommended for those who would like to learn to consciously relax their bodies, calming their mental state and general well-being.
Transcutaneous Electric Neuro Stimulation This uses the principle that pain and pain impulses in the body can be dispersed through stimulation of the nervous system with an electrical current. This electrical current is either applied in impulses in short bursts, in waves, or in a continuous stream. A pad is placed upon the site of the problematic area, and the current passes through the skin to the nerve. This treatment is especially effective for conditions that require pain relief, particularly on the back or neck. Specific examples include spinal diseases, headaches and post-traumatic pain.
In this treatment, different electrical pads at a medium frequency are placed onto the body together with a small vacuum. The effect is one of a micro-massage on the damaged tissue. Depending on the pre-set frequency, the muscles can be stimulated to a so-called muscle gymnastic condition, or alternatively produce relaxation in the muscle tone to have an analgesic effect. The treatment has two advantages: firstly, it reduces pain, and secondly, the micro-massage improves the circulation and flow of oxygen to the tissue, resulting in a healing effect.
This treatment is especially beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis. The forearms and lower limbs are placed into water trays at a temperature of 34°C. Water and a gentle electrical current are the components of this treatment, and an electric current is passed through these particular body parts. Because only the limbs of the body are immersed in water, the electric current in the four-cell bath can be given at a stronger intensity that the full galvanic bath (See: Galvanic Bath). The treatment also has the benefit of improving circulation.
This is a treatment whereby medicine is absorbed into the body through the skin by means of an electric galvanic current. This is normally recommended as treatment in cases of arthritis and chronic inflammatory spinal problems.
This treatment uses a mixture of electric currents, (both galvanic and impulse), which have an inhibitory or facilitatory effect, depending on the frequency, intensity and other parameters. The result is both pain relief and an improvement in circulation. In general, the treatment is prescribed for conditions such as sprains, bruises, oedemas, joint and spine deterioration and disc degeneration.
Two pads are placed at both ends of the indicated muscle. An electric current is passed between the two pads. As a result, it is possible to feel the muscle fibres contracting and releasing as the treatment is in progress. The purpose of this treatment is to build strength in the muscles following an injury or operation, and is an important part of a rehabilitation package.
This treatment is conducted while lying down on a bed or couch, while the treated body part is exposed to an artificial magnetic field (magnetic blanket, contact treatment head or magnetic cylinder). By creating a weak pulsating magnetic field around the body, it has the effect of recharging the magnetic stimulation of the cells. This results in normalising the metabolism and regeneration of cells, thereby supporting the healing process. The treatment also has contraindications, such as implanted cardio stimulators (pacemakers), fungal diseases, tumours and pregnancy.
In Danubius hotels, the mud used in treatments comes mainly from three famous sources: from the famous Hévíz Thermal Lake in Hungary, and from sediment from a branch of the River Váh on the site of the hot springs in Piešt’any. Saturation of this mud in the thermal waters creates a unique compound inhabited by healing bacteria and sulphur that has many chemical and biological reactions. Firstly, it has excellent heat-conducting features, cooling down four times slower than water, and secondly, when the sulphur and minerals are absorbed through the skin to the ligaments, cartilages and sinews, it inhibits the degradation of elastine and collagen. The mud is applied either by pump or hand onto the body in a 5 cm-wide layer, except for the head and frontal parts of the chest and neck. Its temperature is normally between 40-45°C. The body is then wrapped up in blankets. After 20 minutes, the mud is hosed off and a 15-minute dry wrap can be conducted. The mud pack results in a reduction of local swelling around the joints, a reduction of muscle tension and better nutrition of the cartilage, connective tissue and spinal discs. It also strengthens anti-inflammatory activity and immune processes within the body. The mud can also be applied partially (See: Local Mud Pack). In Sovata, Romania, mud is used from the Bear Salt Lake (See Balneotherapy: Salt Bath). This mud is applied in the same way. The salt mud is not only effective for mobility disorders, but also for some skin conditions and gynaecological disorders (See: Gynaecological Mud/Peat Treatment).
A variety of special cream packs is available for inflammatory and painful conditions. Generally, the cream is spread on the affected body part, which is covered with a special foil and kept warm with a blanket. These creams include Inno-reuma, Antiphlogistin and sulphur, which have a chilling effect when applied to the skin. They are also effective for anti-inflammation and pain relief. Likewise, the Ritex pack achieves the same effect, but creates a hot sensation when applied to the skin, which additionally helps blood circulation to the area.
Inhalation with medicine has the same effect and uses the same principles as salt inhalation or thermal water inhalation (See: Salt Inhalation), but has a stronger effect. A combination of water, sometimes mineral water and medicine, are inhaled through a tube. During this inhalation process, the medicine is inhaled directly into the respiratory system and lungs, where it helps to dissolve mucous and has a cleansing reaction. It is effective in the treatment of chronic respiratory conditions, allergies or the after-effects of a cold or respiratory infection.
Oxygen is inhaled through an intranasal tube into the nose whilst you lie comfortably in a reclining chair. The air being inhaled is enriched with about 40-60% oxygen at a reasonable level of humidity. An increased supply of oxygen into the body enhances the immune system, improves heart activity and the elasticity of the lungs, helps the condition and efficiency of the mind and is excellent for overall health. Sometimes a vitamin drink is also offered as part of the treatment.
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 the 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 for the treatment of chronic respiratory conditions, or the after-effects 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. In some locations this treatment is followed by a thermal bath (See Balneotherapy: Thermal Bath).
