Fangotherapy-related services


BALNEOTHERAPY: spa bath therapy, using the therapeutically active mineral waters, combines the physical properties (non-specific) with the biological and therapeutic effects of the minerals that make each mineral water a unique solution with a chemical-physical composition.

WHIRLPOOL: a particular massage therapy technique that uses the pressure exerted by jets of the spa's water as it emerges from the wells. Tanks are used, fitted with multiple nozzles from which the air-mixed water comes out at a sufficiently high pressure. The pressure is adjusted according to the patient's needs.

The jets are oriented to spray from the sole of the foot to the chest in order to promote good blood circulation.
