Thermal water

Thermal water

The thermal waters at Terme di Premia are particularly recommended as inhalation therapy for chronic bronchitis, inflammatory diseases of the upper airways - particularly laryngopharyngeal and sinonasal flogosis - and, more generally, for various pathological states of the upper airways.

They are also recommended as balneotherapy for chronic inflammatory joint and vascular diseases, but especially for dermatological care due to the presence of numerous minerals that are essential to the integrity and metabolism of the skin. The water is highly tolerated by both the skin and the eyes.

With re-hydrating characteristics, the waters are also recommended for the care of burns or scars, and to counteract the ageing process of the skin. The soothing and cleansing effect of the water is also useful for people who suffer from chronic eczema, generalised eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. The buffering capacity of the bicarbonated water presents a specific beneficial quality. For this reason, skin diseases such as seborrhea, acne, and chronic urticaria are favourably affected by bathing treatments.

By Decree of the Ministry of Health no. 3038 and n. 3037, on May 18, 1998, the use of water was authorised for inhalation therapy and balneotherapy. With Presidential Decree of the Regional Council No. 80 on March 18, 1999, the Piedmont Health Authority granted concession for exploitation of thermal waters to the Municipality of Premia.
