Throughout your stay our doctors are on hand to give you the necessary advice and guidance to ensure that you make the most from our spa facilities and treatments. They will also be able to answer questions that you may have and can give you important advice on our effective preventative therapies and improving your health in general. Some of our signature treatments, because of their unique effects, require a doctor’s consultation prior to booking. Your health spa or hotel reception will be able to give you further information on this and how you can book an appointment to see a doctor.
This treatment has three parts. Firstly we take down the guest’s essential measurements (height, weight and age). From these measurements we can detirmine the guest’s BMI (Body mass index – which should be between 20 and 30). We also use these measurements in combination with the body fat measuring machine to calculate the ideal body weight in kilos and energy exchange (Kcal) according to that particular guest. In the second part we measure the blood pressure and the resting pulse rate with a digital blood pressure machine. Finally we examine the respiratory function capacity (inhalation and exhalation) with a spirometer. These measurements give a clear picture of the guest’s health and are a good starting point for designing a fitness program or giving lifestyle advice.
The individual bubble bath is similar to the individual thermal bubble bath (See Balneotherapy: Individual Thermal Bubble Bath). However, instead of using thermal water, ordinary water that has been heated to a temperature of between 32-34°C is used. Small ‘fizzy’ bubbles of air are then pumped into this. The treatment lasts between 10- 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 caused by the bubbles. The treatment in some of our spa locations is followed by a full body 15-minute dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap).
Therapeutic exercise is a crucial part of the recovery process and instrumental to any rehabilitation program. This therapy is led by an expert physiotherapist, normally for a group of guests with a similar diagnostic profile. An example of our classes includes therapeutic exercise for spine or joint conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, vascular conditions of the brain and exercise for cardiac patients. The therapy uses exercises designed to relax overloaded muscles, strengthen weak muscle groups, improve joint, spinal and pelvic mobilisation,and strengthen static/dynamic functions necessary for correct body positioning. An inseparable part of these classes are breathing exercises, in addition to training for speed, agility, endurance, balance, strength and overall fitness.
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.
This is a manual technique used for the treatment of joint ‘blockages’ that cause pain and restrict movement and may also cause reflex changes such as aches and spasms. In most cases, these are in the so-called ‘joint’ sections of the spine. The purpose of the treatment is the release of the segment and the restoration of a freely-moving joint. First of all, the problem area is overstressed, and then the ‘blockage’ is released through a small quick movement with mild force. This technique is continued using short repetitive movements, starting from a marginal to a neutral position, without impact but permanent overstress. This results in a mitigation of the ‘blockage’ or even in its direct elimination. This manipulation should be carried out by a specially-trained and licensed doctor. Mobilisation techniques, on the other hand, such as slower muscle pulling and release, stretching and others, are normally carried out by a qualified physiotherapist.
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.
This therapy, originating from Australia, is a speciality of the Danubius Hotel Helia. The therapist first conducts a detailed examination to determine the origin of the pain (muscle, joint or bone), then with sensitive, small, gentle movements tries to remove the area of pain blockage.
Our ‘back school’ helps many people to be able to move without pain and is a key part of reconvalescence. Nowadays some exercise theories are considered out-dated. According to the latest research there are no correct or incorrect movements, only movements according to the moment and body strength – comfortable, uncomfortable, convenient or inconvenient. This program included in the back school teaches exercises aimed at strengthening all kinds of muscles cruicial in supporting correct body posture. In particular the stomach, thigh and back muscles.
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.
Parafango is a combination of dry mud, usually used from a local source as in Piešt’any, and pure hard paraffin and paraffin oil. The mixture is melted and heated in a special unit, then applied to the problematic area of the body in a 1 cm thick layer, just as it begins to harden at a temperature of between 38-45°C. The intensity of the heat is slightly lower than the pure paraffin, making it a more patient-friendly treatment. The local application of the heat relaxes the muscles, causing spasm release, easing chronic pain and supporting the healing and nutrition of the tissues. It also has sedative and immunobiological features.
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.
This treatment is carried out in a bath, sometimes with soft whirling water at a temperature of about 34 °C. Different herbs and oils are added to the water depending on the effect desired. For revitalization the unique extracts from different plants. These plant extracts combined with the effects of the warm water help to re-energize and refresh the body. The bath is normally combined with massage or an alternative wellness treatment.

In some of our spa locations, we offer a smaller version of a Danubius Premier Fitness Club, these have been branded under the name ‘Danubius Premier Fitness Studios’. In each studio you will find a variety of professional cardio and strength equipment, enough to offer a full-body complete fitness workout.
Aqua fitness is different to water rehabilitation (See Physiotherapy: Water Rehabilitation) in that its focus is not just mobilization, flexibility and rehabilitation. Here, a number of exercises are incorporated into the class using large muscle groups that increase heart rate thereby giving the body a cardio work out. Regular exercise of the cardiovascular system has been proven to reduce heart disease, lower blood pressure, help weight loss and reduce the risk of many diseases. Aqua fitness uses the resistance of water to exercise the body as well as resulting in minimum stress being placed upon the joints. In addition to improving the cardiovascular fitness of the body, using certain water-based equipments, muscle-toning exercises are often incorporated into the class. All fitness classes begin with warm up and stretching, before beginning the more intensive exercises. Classes likewise end with a cool down and developmental stretching.
Joseph Pilates developed his concept in England whilst interred during the First World War, basing his principles on yoga and Tai Chi (See: Yoga, Tai Chi). Whilst working in a hospital he began devising equipment to rehabilitate his patients, taking springs from beds and rigging them to create resistance. Pilates is mainly taught on a mat, sometimes using specialist equipment that has changed little from the original hospital bedsprings. Practiced faithfully Pilates yields numerous benefits, including increased lung capacity, strength, flexibility, posture and balance. The balance and control taught in Pilates helps in all areas of ones life. His methods are so successful that all types of people now use them from ballet dancers to rugby players.
The word yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where it originated – the union of mind, body and spirit. Many people think that yoga is stretching, but whilst stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating a balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through a series of poses, each of which has specific physical benefits. These poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement, or slowly to increase stamina and improve the alignment. In addition to these poses, yoga classes may include instruction on breathing or meditation.
