Thermal waters and therapeutic benefits

Inhalation therapies

Inhalation therapies

Recommended for respiratory diseases. Each session consists of 10 minutes of inhalation (direct hot-humid spray with steam equipment, recommended for upper respiratory tract diseases) and 10 minutes of aerosol (the mostly finely fractionated thermal water is able to reach the pulmonary alveoli).


There is also the possibility of paying for micronised showers (the thermal water particles are larger than those in the traditional aerosol and are pressurised directly into the nostrils).


Therapeutic inhalation therapy recommended for: Chronic inflammation of the upper airways, catarrhal otitis media, chronic otosalpingitis, vasomotor rhinopathy, chronic bronchitis, and chronic pharyngitis.

 


Thermal Inhalation

This method uses devices that fragment the mineral water into particles, forming a hot-humid steam spray that is inhaled by the patient. Each session lasts about 10-15 minutes. They are particularly recommended for in the upper respiratory tract diseases, such as
rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, and tracheitis for example.

Thermal aerosol

Made up of fine particles of mineral water that are able to reach the distal branches of the respiratory tree as well as the pulmonary alveoli. Depending on what disease is being treated and the discretion of the physician, the patient uses a mask or a forked nasal tube connected to the dispenser. The choice is made in relation to the main area you want to affect (nasal, pharyngeal, etc.). Each session lasts about 10-15 minutes. They are particularly

recommended for lower respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis. With a medical prescription, it is possible to use a specific water soluble medication (medical aerosol).

Micronised thermal nasal shower

Produces abundant nebulisation that performs a thorough wash of nasal secretions and the paranasal sinuses. Frees catarrhal secretions and allows an intense absorption of the active ingredients contained in thermal water as well as performing a deep local cleansing and humidifying action. The result is an immediate fluidisation of the catarrhal secretions present in the nasal cavity and in the pharynx and nasopharynx. Recommended for all catarrhal diseases of the nose and throat, and the sinuses.

  • It is not possible to access inhalation therapy without first paying a visit to our in-house physician.

  • Patients should strictly adhere to the therapeutic regimens prescribed by the spa physician and the operators.

  • To achieve the proper results, patients should perform therapies on 12 consecutive days.

  • "District thermal crisis" is a relapse sensation that may occur, involving the temporary recurrence of acute illness symptoms: congestion of the mucous membranes (blocked nose), increased secretions, coughs, headaches, and fatigue. These symptoms do not affect the results of inhalation therapies and tend to disappear in a couple of days without requiring special treatment. Sometimes it may be useful to suspend the treatment for two or three days.

 

Inhalation treatments take place at the following times:

From Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 12.00 

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 14.00 to 16.30

 

If you have special requirements, speak to the staff to request and agree upon different times for treatment.

It is possible to perform two thermal inhalation treatments per day provided that you leave a couple of hours between the first and second treatments.

 

Everything you need will be provided by the staff.

Balneotherapy treatments

Recommended for arthro-rheumatic and dermatological disorders.


Thermal bath therapy is where a patient is immersed in a tub containing naturally warm water (38°C) for 10-15 minutes.


At the end, the patient is left to rest on the lounger for another 10 minutes (reaction).
Therapeutic balneotherapy is recommended for: Osteoarthritis, joint and extra-articular manifestations of rheumatoid arthritis, neuralgia and myalgia, osteoporosis, tissue edema, psoriasis, eczema, and atopic dermatitis

 


Balneotherapy treatments

Balneotherapy

An antique, natural therapeutic approach for the prevention and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and dermatological diseases. Thermal balneotherapy consists of immersing the body in mineral water at a temperature of about 36-40°C for a period of around 15 minutes. Following the bath, the patient lies on the lounger for a further 10 minutes to induce a thermal reaction.
Particularly recommended for joint problems with chronic inflammatory pain, vascular diseases and dermatological care.

It is also possible to reinforce balneotherapy with our "SEA CLINIC" treatments based on salts and muds from the Dead Sea.


Mud Application

It is possible to combine the use of the thermal baths with a Dead Sea mud treatment, either in localised areas or on the whole body. The heat generated by the mud causes vasodilatation to occur, resulting in dilation of the skin pores. This improves problems with water retention, and the skin recovers elasticity and tone making it soft and velvety. But there are also other benefits: muscle, joint and bone pain relief; stimulating effect on lymphatic and blood circulation; stimulating effect on connective tissue renewal processes; anti-ageing effect on the skin and the cutaneous annexes; detoxifying, decongestant and reparative effect on the epidermis; stimulating effect on the immune system resulting in increased resistance to infection; anti-stress effect.

Salt Bath

The salt bath combines all the benefits of thermal water with the natural salt of the Dead Sea. Among the many beneficial beauty effects of Dead Sea Salts is their ability to promote the elimination of waste, toxins, and excess fluid, resulting in a reduction of adipose tissue and cellulite. In addition, this remedy gives the skin greater elasticity, and it is also great for attenuating muscular pain, eliminating fatigue and stress, and reducing swelling of the feet and ankles. These particular salts are also used in the prevention and treatment of skin blemishes such as acne, psoriasis and so on, and appear to have no side effects of any kind.

Phlebology treatments

Phlebology treatments

Recommended for chronic venous insufficiency of the lower limbs, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and for the results or after effects of vascular surgery.

 

The vascular path is a cobblestone walkway, through hot thermal water tanks at alternating temperatures, with jets that massage the lower limbs.

 

Duration of the session is 25 minutes.

Therapeutic treatment recommended for: Venous insufficiency of the lower limbs, varicosity and results of thrombophlebitis, lymphedema, cellulite, and after effects of saphenectomy and phlebectomy.

 


Consists of walking alternately in hot and cold thermal water in two parallel pools, which have an irregular floor that is covered by large pebbles. In addition to providing a pleasant foot massage, these pebbles facilitate venous return and therefore re-activate circulation. The alternation between hot and cold, that the lower limbs are subjected to, stimulates a sort of vascular gymnastics that boosts the tone of the vein walls.


It is particularly recommended for chronic venous insufficiency, lymphedema, and the results and after effects of venous peripheral vascular surgery.
