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.
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.
If you are staying with us for one week or longer on a traditional or therapeutic spa stay, it is likely that you will receive a weekly control check up with one of our spa doctors. The purpose of this consultation is to ensure that your treatment plan is having the best results possible and that you are getting the best out of our spa services. In some cases the treatment plan might be adjusted and additional treatments advised, depending on your progress.
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.
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.
The main principal of reflexology is based on the fact that in the human body there are more than 70,000 nerve endings located in the foot. These nerve endings connect to internal and external organs throughout the body, through energy channels. This massage specifically targets the hands and feet, stimulating the nerve endings to produce a general healing effect. In particular, it has a positive ‘reflex’ effect on the blood circulatory and lymphatic systems, the immune system, and regulates the functioning of the endocrine glands. The massage also has relaxing and pain-alleviation effects particularly effective for back pain and headaches. It can also help with cases of anxiety, insomnia and digestive system disorders.
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 treatment is conducted in the lying position on a bed or couch, while the treated body part is exposed to an artificial magnetic field (magnetic blanket). 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 the normalizing of the metabolism and regeneration of cells thereby supporting the healing process. The treatment also has counter indications, such as implanted cardio stimulators (pace maker), fungal diseases, tumors and pregnancy.
This treatment combines the benefits of body wrapping with aromatherapy. It begins with the appliance of a special cream followed by a wrap using a porous film - from the ankle up to the neck area, which is administered with a slight pressure to gently compress the cells. Then follows a 45 minute period of relaxation to allow the cream to absorb into the skin. When the treatment is over and the film is taken off, the non absorbed cream is massaged into the body. It is then advised to drink plenty of water to ensure a positive effect from the treatment and to abstain from bathing for a couple of hours. The aim of the treatment is to stimulate the blood and lymph circulation, which helps trigger the body’s detoxification processes, as well as to promote weight loss. It is also recommended in combating cellulite and stretch marks as well as to improve the skin’s elasticity. This is an excellent treatment when used in conjunction with dieting, detoxifying and weight loss programs.
This treatment is similar in principal to the stepping bath (See: Stepping Bath) and is based on the Kneipp principle of hot and cold water on the body. The difference between the two treatments is in the stepping bath: you physically step into baths of alternating temperatures, whereas with our alternating temperature bath you sit comfortably with your feet in a basin whilst a gentle jet of water is sprayed onto the feet at a warm temperature with intervals of cold water. This procedure is repeated for the wrists and hands in the arm bath with water. This treatment improves the immune system, circulation and metabolism and leaves one with a rejuvenated feeling.
