Nové Lázně is the most complete spa hotel in the Czech Republic. Indeed, in addition to classical hotel services, it also provides natural mineral baths, natural dry-carbonated baths, gas applications, peat wraps and additionally there are three pools and the famous Royal Cabin.
Besides the traditional cures, colon hydrotherapy is also provided in the spa hotel Nové Lázně. Could you explain to the readers what this term means?
Colon hydrotherapy is a procedure very much in demand, especially by foreign spa guests, but also by citizens of this town. Basically it is a cleansing of the large intestine by warm water at 37°C. By washing out the large intestine, the content and deposits on the intestinal walls which accumulate there are removed. We prescribe this procedure for constipation and flatulence, gall bladder and pancreatic disorders, immunity disorders, allergies, etc. Colon hydrotherapy is also a form of prevention against tumours of the large intestine.
