Mineral baths do wonders for the health: there’s good reason why the Romans took regular dips in them to treat complaints and ailments. The water is sourced from springs located deep underground, becoming purified and enriched with minerals as it surfaces. The specific minerals the water contains depends on the composition of the earth. As a result, each thermal spring has a different curative effect. Some baths help with rheumatism, pain and skin complaints; others are good for treating infections, digestive issues and nervous system complaints. Many health resorts therefore also use the water in the therapies they offer. This makes it possible for you to combine a relaxing wellness holiday with the preventive treatment of physical problems.
What is a wellness holiday with mineral baths? Thermal water can be applied in a number of therapeutic ways. The health or wellness resort spa may use it in a bath cure, for example. In that instance, the minerals are absorbed through the skin. Some treatments use inhalation, whereby you breathe in the therapeutic elements. There are also drinking cures for internal healing. Results are sometimes evident after just a few days. Other times, however, it can take longer. Either way, the healthful, relaxing effects of a thermal bath will not pass you by. Combined with other pleasures, such as delicious food, luxury, service and rest, a wellness holiday with mineral baths is the ultimate wellness holiday.
