Machine lymphodrainage

Procedure which acts against oedemas with alternating pressure which pushes liquid from tissues into blood vessels.

  • eliminates oedemas of the lower and upper limbs caused by insufficient vein function or lymphatic vessels, post-injury oedemas and cellulite

Magnet therapy

A procedure which uses the positive effects of a pulsed magnetic field on the human body using magnetic cylinders. Recommended for diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels, for musculoskeletal system diseases, diseases of the digestive tract and in degenerative and inflammatory diseases of the nervous system.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound waves applied using a head travelling along soft tissues. Recommended for chronic joint inflammations, muscle rheumatism.

  • improves regeneration of tissue properties
  • eases pain

Massage

Traditional massage (full or partial)

Full massage of the arms, legs and back, or partial massage of the neck and back. Supports blood circulation and metabolism. Excitation of receptors leads to improved blood flow, metabolism and nutrition in the tissues of the massaged area. Popular procedure with significant psychotherapeutic effects.

Reflexology massage

Highly specialised hand massage undertaken dry. Stimulates nerve endings in the skin, subcutaneous tissue and muscles, thus helping remove reflexology changes in these tissues.

  • removes reflexology changes in the skin, subcutaneous tissue and muscles caused by pathological processes
  • beneficial impact on functional and chronic diseases of the internal organs

Arctic Fire (alternating water jet)

A procedure based on the mechanical excitation of the skin through jets of water and the application of heat and cold. Used in degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system and in functional disorders of blood supply to arms and legs.


Wraps

Paraffin wrap

A procedure using heat transfer in hardening heated (55 °C) paraffin wax mixed with paraffin oil. Recommended for pain in minor joints as a result of arthritis.

  • heats and relaxes tissues, eliminates feelings of pain

Mud wrap

A procedure using gradual heat transfer from mud or peat at a temperature of 46–47 °C to the patient’s body.

  • relaxes muscles

Direct mud wrap

Heated peat from a natural healing source in Krásno – Čistá, applied according to the doctor’s prescription (localisation, temperature, period) directly to the affected area to a thickness of 4 cm. The subsequent wrap extends the period of body heating. The mud application contains a large amount of organic substances and minerals which can penetrate the body through the action of heat.

  • relaxes muscles

Peat pack

Peat pack is a hyperthermal procedure involving prolonged heat transfer to the patient’s body. The heated peat from the natural healing source in Krásno – Ćistá is applied according to the doctor’s prescription (localisation, temperature, period) using an application pack on the affected area. This heating results in increased blood flow to the tissue and whole body, releasing muscle tension and reducing pain. As well as its analgetic and regenerative effects, the application of wraps also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.

  • relaxes muscles

Baths and spas

Mineral bath

Preheated bath in mineral water of temperature 36–38 °C.

The procedure is demanding of blood circulation, and as such is unsuitable for persons with high blood pressure or heart disease and for diabetics.

Pearl bath

Bath in thermal spring water of temperature 37–38 °C, which has a relaxing and calming effect

  • improves blood flow to skin
  • overall relaxation of body
  • positive impact on insomnia, neurosis, psychosomatic disorders and musculoskeletal system diseases

Peat bath

Bath in thermal spring water at 38 °C with added natural peat with marked pressure and heat effect, even on deeply positioned organs. The pressure pushes on leg blood and lymph.

  • treating the musculoskeletal system
  • relief from pain for degenerative joint diseases and degenerative spinal diseases

Dry carbon dioxide bath

A procedure based on the positive effects of carbon dioxide (CO₂) on the human body’s peripheral circulation. CO₂ is applied in an airtight plastic pouch (approx. 125 l gas). During the procedure there are increased CO₂ levels in the skin, resulting in the expansion of all blood vessels and increased oxygen content in the blood. Used during treatment of cardiovascular diseases, in treating lymphoedemas, in healing injured skin, or in aiding rheumatic disorders.

  • boosts the nervous and immune systems
  • improves the activities of the vegetative nervous system

Carbon dioxide bath

Bath in thermal spring water of temperature 34–35 °C, mixed with carbon dioxide which is absorbed by the skin.
