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 programmes. 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 strong that a weekly visit to the local spa is routine for many people living in Central Europe. Thermal water naturally arises, or is pumped artificially up to the earth’s surface, typically from a depth of around 2,000 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 minutes daily unless otherwise advised by one of our doctors. In some of our more traditional spas, your thermal bathing treatment will conclude with 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 thermal water with sauna facilities, swimming and hydro pools.
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.
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).
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.
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.
A maximum of four local areas are permitted without a doctor’s prescription. The mud pack results in a reduction of local swelling around the joints as well as an easing of muscle tension. It also strengthens anti-inflammatory activity and immune processes within the body, improving the function of the cartilage, connective tissues and spinal discs.
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.
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.
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).
In our health spa resorts that do not have the advantage of local natural gas, commercial CO2 gas (the same as used 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. Carbon dioxide gas is then pumped into the bag, which slowly inflates, where it is absorbed through the clothes and skin into the body. The gas reduces the heart rate and lowers the blood pressure, which in turn improves blood circulation, has an anti-inflammatory effect, accelerates the healing of wounds and positively affects kidney activity.
This treatment involves stepping alternately into footbaths that are filled with water of contrasting temperatures. First your feet are placed into a footbath of water between 40-42°C, actively stepping for one to two minutes, then into a cold water footbath at a temperature between 10-16°C, again actively stepping for 15-30 seconds. This whole cycle is repeated between 6 and 10 times, always finishing in the cold footbath. This treatment has a positive impact on headaches, migraines, circulation disorders (cold feet) and early-stage varicose veins. It also helps improve the condition of ankle ligaments and leg joints, and is an appropriate treatment for injuries to feet and lower limbs.
