4. Sustainability

Thermal mineral springs- drinking cures and other internal or external balneological therapies use 14 springs that are recognized as natural healing resources.

Carbon Dioxide-hanks to its low reactivity carbon dioxide is nearly inert and highly soluble in water. It has antibacterial and fungistatic effects and thus it reduces the effects of bacteria and fungal molds. A carbon bath is one of the oldest spa procedures

Peloids – peat&therapeutic mud -The great advantage of all peloids is their ability to keep a stable temperature for a relatively long time. This is why they are used for procedures during which a stable temperature is required.The beneficial effects of peat for the human body have been known for centuries
