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.
