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.
Drinking medicinal mineral water is an important part of your spa stay. The rich mineral waters gently regulate the functioning of the stomach, bowels, kidneys and liver. A drinking treatment normally consists of drinking a prescribed amount of the mineral before meals, as drinking on an empty stomach increases the efficiency and effect of the mineral substances and their absorption into the body. Each particular fountain in our different spa resorts in Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia has its own unique benefits and advantages. Instructions on how to take full advantage of this natural resource can be found in the spa. In general, it is advised to drink between 1-2 decilitres before meals. Our Health Spa Resort of Marienbad was built around the healing effects of its medicinal drinking springs, world famous for its curative effects on kidney and urinary tract conditions. There are seven different mineral water springs in Marienbad, each with their own particular benefits and healing mineral components. Because of this, combined with the importance of embarking upon the correct drinking regime, your spa doctor will advise you on which spring can best benefit your health condition. In Marienbad, you will normally be prescribed to drink between 1-2 litres per day.
This is another signature treatment of the spa resort of Marienbad, where the gas that bubbles naturally out of the ground – ‘Maria’s gas’ – is used in the treatment. This gas is of volcanic origin and contains 99.7% CO2. In our other resorts, regular commercial CO2 gas (the same as in the food industry) is used. During the treatment, you lie comfortably and fully clothed on a bed, enclosed in a large plastic bag that is sealed just under the arms. The gas is then pumped into the bag, which slowly inflates, and is absorbed through the clothes and skin into the body, where it slows down heart activity and reduces blood pressure. The gas also improves blood circulation and kidney activity and has an anti-inflammatory effect. The gas is also known to stimulate the production of the sexual hormones, testosterone and estradiol, which is why it is successful for improving of sexual functions and relieving menopausal symptoms in women.
For this treatment we use sulphide mineral water with a concentration of 150-250mg hydrogen sulphide at a temperature of37-38° C. The duration of the treatment is 10 minutes. This mineral bath is extremely effective in absorbing hydrogen sulphide into the skin, which has beneficial effects on long-standing chronic skin diseases. The treatment concentrates on the lower extremities, particularly on the legs and feet, where the skin is much thicker than on the rest of the body. After the bath are a dry wrap and a rest for 10-15 minutes, according to the guest’s wishes. It is not recommended either before or after the treatment to have a bath in normal water, only a shower.
In the Mineral Bath Tub treatment, the bath is filled with natural mineral water with a concentration of 25mg, 50mg or 100mg sulphide to one litre of water. The temperature of the mineral bath is between 36 - 38°C. (Higher temperatures are not recommended, as they increase the release of hydrogen sulphide into the air). The natural thermal mineral water in Smrdáky is world famous for its effective treatment of skin diseases and arthritic conditions. The duration of the treatment and concentration of the sulphide is based upon a doctor's prescription following a medical consultation.
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.
Paraffin packs take advantage of the heat-conducting effectiveness of paraffin as it hardens at a temperature of approximately 55°C. There are several different types of application methods, such as soaking a part of the body in paraffin, brushing paraffin onto parts of the body in layers, or applying a thin sheet of paraffin onto the problematic area. The local application of 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.
In our locations where there no natural thermal mud exists, such as in Marienbad, peat is used as an alternative. The procedure is similar to the mud pack (See: Mud Pack), in that the peat is applied to the body at a temperature of between 40-45°C and wrapped either partially or completely onto the body with blankets for a period of 20 minutes. The peat is then hosed off and the treatment may then be completed with a dry wrap (See Other: Dry Wrap). The heat from the peat improves the blood circulation rate and local metabolism, softening the muscles/connective tissues and having an anti-inflammatory effect.
Shiatsu is an old, traditional Japanese healing method which is carried out on the floor in loose clothing. (Shiatsu in Japanese means ‘finger pressure’). Unlike the massages of the West that focus on kneading and friction, pressure and stretching are the techniques used in Shiatsu. The masseur uses palms, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, elbows, knees and feet on the body’s acupuncture points along what are considered the body’s meridians or energy channels. In Shiatsu, it is believed that disease is a result of blocked or unbalanced energy in these channels, and the pressure applied in the massage helps to release it. Shiatsu massages are effective in treating many conditions, particularly respiratory and digestive problems, as well as headaches.
