THE SPA HERITAGE OF MARIENBAD (Mariánské Lázně)
Situated next to the German border, in what was once Bohemia, the beautiful spa resort of Marienbad (Mariánské Lázně) is perched on a high wooded valley. This famous resort pays homage to spa culture through its glorious Edwardian architecture, spa buildings and colonnades. When you see the elaborately decorated buildings and breathe the clear highland air, it is immediately clear why royalty, poets, scientists and thinkers have been attracted to this spa resort for generations.
Marienbad (Mariánské Lázně) was founded at the beginning of the 19th century, but it was during the ‘golden age’ at the end of the century that the spa town witnessed an unprecedented boom. Prominent visitors included inventor Thomas Edison, writers Goethe, Mark Twain and N. V. Gogol, composers Strauss, Chopin and Wagner, and many other famous artists and celebrities from around the world. King Edward VII of England ranked among the most frequent guests, visiting the town nine times in total; in 1904, he met here with the Austrian Emperor, Franz Joseph I. Guests today are even able to experience a treatment in his personal bath cabin, with its unique atmosphere and elaborate decoration.
NATURAL RESOURCES AND SIGNATURE TREATMENTS
1. Mineral Water
There are seven different cold mineral springs in Marienbad, each with its own benefits and healing mineral compounds. The springs are world famous for their curative effects on kidney and urinary tract infections. Because of its complexity, the mineral drinking treatment is prescribed by a doctor, who will advise you of which spring will best benefit your health condition.
Signature treatment – Mineral Bath
Duration of treatment: 20 minutes
What to expect: A mineral bath of 34ºC, into which is pumped natural CO2 gas that fizzes onto the skin, producing a relaxing, tingling sensation.
Effects: The CO2 is absorbed through the skin into the body, slowing down the heart rate and reducing blood pressure. Treatment improves blood circulation, heart and kidney activity, reduces stress and stimulates overall healing.
2. Maria´s gas - Natural Dry Carbon Gas
Natural volcanic gas (containing 99.7% CO2, and called Maria’s gas) improves blood circulation, kidney activity and sexual functions, in addition to having an anti-inflammatory effect. It is also administered by injection to reduce pain, improve localised circulation and accelerate healing.
Signature treatment – Natural Dry Carbon Gas bath
Duration of treatment: 30 minutes
What to expect: During the treatment, you lie fully clothed while enclosed (up to the arms) in a large plastic bag. As the natural CO2 gas is pumped into the bag, you experience a feeling of warmth as blood circulation improves.
Effects: The gas is known to improve blood pressure, kidney activity and the production of sexual hormones, making it a form of natural Viagra treatment!
