Oxygen treatment is especially beneficial for patients with lung, blood vessel, heart, and kidney diseases. It is also effective in patients with wound healing problems. Furthermore, this treatment is recommended for patients with excess weight, as well as for fighting premature skin aging, depression, and fatigue. • All the procedures carried out at the treatment centre, including baths, inhalations, underwater massage, oral cavity related procedures, and swimming, are carried out using natural mineral water only, which is provided to the treatment centre directly from the well. • We offer a very popular and beneficial procedure – curative physical exercise in vertical mineral water baths.

ABOUT TREATMENT CENTER • Only at our treatment centre will you find a swimming pool with a glass wall. There is a running track in the water, where you can control the physical parameters and set the programme complexity level. While exercising, you have to overcome the resistance of the water, which is highly effective for those who want to develop their physical strength, lose weight, or fight cellulite. • You can easily get rid of stress and tiredness in the steam chamber. The procedure also includes colour and aromatherapy and showers. During the treatment, the relaxed patient lies in a “bed”, which provides extra benefits. The sweat generated as a result of the effect of the steam is removed with water right away. The computerised steam chamber programme allows for complete relaxation. The detoxifying anti-stress programme activates the immune system; moisturises, strengthens, and rejuvenates the skin; improves metabolism; removes toxins; and fights cellulite. Gingiva peloid applications and gingiva hydro massage is provided to treat periodontitis. These highly effective treatments cure bleeding, swollen, and aching gums, and bring a smile back to your face. •

• One session at the cryosauna is sufficient to lose 500 to 2,000 kcal. A cryosauna is an artificial cold chamber, in which temperatures fluctuate in the range of –110°C to –140°C.

Therapeutic Mud – The Natural Healing Element from Nature During treatments our medical Spa uses peat mud. Peat is produced by a long process of decomposition (involving minimum contact with oxygen) of vegetative organisms. Various hypotheses exist to explain the effect mechanisms of therapeutic peat. Today it is believed that mud procedures affect the mechanical, thermal, chemical, pain and other receptors of one’s skin and provoke complex reflex reactions. The trophic (tissue nutritional) reflexes begin to function first. Biologically active substances of skin are released, through which all the bodily systems begin to react. Three phases of therapeutic mud treatment are distinguished. First is an outer reflex phase, during which the energy of the mud affects skin receptors, and through which the central nervous system is affected. In response to te first phase, the second, neurochemical, phase is initiated. As mentioned before, biologically active substances circulating in the blood are released and stimulate the nervous system. The third phase is a reaction phase and continues for the longest time (from 2 to 24 hours and longer). Changes in the organism caused by these mud applications help normalise various functions, improve tissue and organ blood flow, nutrition, increase absorption of oxygen, activate functioning of the endocrine glands, especially if it was insufficient, and improve the elimination of products of various inflammatory processes. Due to these reasons pain diminishing and anti-inflammatory effects manifest themselves, protective and adaptation mechanisms of the organism are activated, etc. Therapeutic mud is recommended to those with: disorders of musculoskeletal apparatus organs (spine, bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, etc.), nervous system disorders, digestive system disorders, peripheral vascular diseases, traumas, burns, after effects of frostbite and otolaryngological diseases.
