Natural healing agents
The temperature of thermal water is generally no lower than 20 ˚C at the outflow. At health resorts’ medical services we exploit its mechanical, chemical and thermic properties.
Terme Krka’s thermal springs
Thermal water is used for medical purposes. Its characteristics are carefully and regularly monitored.
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.
The water analysis
|Water at Dolenjske Toplice health resort|
|Temperature||With a temperature of 36.2° C, it is classified as isoactratothermal mineral water,
(iso = temp. 34–38 ˚C; acrato = low- mineralized – mineral content does not exceed 1000 mg/l).
Calcium-magnesium-hydrogen carbonate (Ca-Mg-HCO3) – homeoacratothermal water.
According to the ionic composition and temperature the water is highly beneficial as a complementary treatment in rehabilitation programmes for:
