Maria’s Mineral Bath with Peat Extract
This is a signature treatment, exclusively provided in the spa resort of Marienbad using the natural local mineral waters and natural CO2 gas that naturally seeps out from the ground. The bath takes place in a historical bath tub, inlaid with oak. The water temperature is 34°C and the peat is added directly into the water. Natural CO2 gas fizzes onto the skin, producing a relaxing, tickling sensation. The carbon dioxide is absorbed through the skin into the body, where it slows down the heart activity and reduces the blood pressure. The bath improves blood circulation, counteracts stress, decreases blood pressure, improves the function of the heart and at the same time lets the body absorb the beneficial minerals from the peat. After the treatment it is necessary to have a shower consisting of a mixture of warm water and mineral spring.
