Healing properties of thermal water

  • Warm thermal water has countless beneficial effects on our health. Thanks to the hydrostatic pressure on the immersed part of the body, blood and lymph circulation is improved. At the same time, the implementation of hydro-kinesiotherapy is much easier because of the buoyancy effects. The thermic effect benefits the whole body, from the physiological as well as clinical point of view. The positive effects include an increase of temperature in the tissues, vasodilatation, improvement of the circulation, pain relief, reduction of muscle tension, sedation of the patient, increased activity of the local metabolism, increased skin transudation, stimulation of the immune system, relaxation and hormonal reactivity.
