Therapeutic thermo-mineral water
Our hospital is widely known for healing mineral water with temperatures between 39oC and 41oC, naturally enriched calcium, magnesium and hydro-carbonate. There are four indoor swimming pools that are located within the hospital. Well known “Jakob’s” pool, which is constructed at the thermal springs, yet inside hospital facility, is one of the few such examples in the world. Water is used for treatments performed in swimming pools and tubes, bathing is combined with different medical exercises; these procedures are rounded by application of physical effects of water: temperature, hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy and friction. Arguments for therapeutic effects of mineral water can be found in a few centuries old records of its application for therapeutic purposes, as well as in recent medical reports that prove its curative quality. Drinking warm mineral water after bathing was a common practice during the last century, and has still been used, since there are numerous scientific records, as well as long term practice, that confirm therapeutic effects of this procedure.
Medical mud – fango
Fango – medical mud – is composed of microscopic mineral particles that spring up with mineral water, and subside at the spring’s edges. Fango has got good thermal properties and is used as healing wrap for the whole body or for specific body parts. After being mechanically processed and heated, mud is packed in fabric cloth and wrapped around body or a body part. Medical consultation is recommended to be done before each fango therapy.
