Spa treatment

Windsor Spa Hotel is focused on traditional comprehensive spa treatment using local natural resources – thermo-mineral water and peloids.


What is traditional spa treatment?

The basis of the treatment is a drinking cure and traditional hot mineral baths combined with modern balneological methods such as massage, magnet therapy, electrotherapy and others.

An integral part of the therapy is health education and a special diet under the supervision of a nutritional therapist.

Indications for spa treatment

Comprehensive spa treatment

Your treatment stay in Windsor Spa Hotel includes:

Bath in thermo-mineral pool

Here at the Windsor Hotel, we are returning to the proven traditions of Karlovy Vary spa treatments: bathing in healing thermo-mineral water at a temperature of 36-38 °C.

This is the only pool of its type located within a hotel in the Czech Republic.

Drinking cure

Karlovy Vary mineral water has the following beneficial properties:

Composition of Karlovy Vary mineral water

The twelve Karlovy Vary healing springs have almost the same chemical composition. They differ only in temperature (30–72 °C) and the amount of free absorbed carbon dioxide, which affects their pH of between 6.5 – 7.3.

In chemical terms, the water is a hot hydrocarbon-sulfate-chloride-sodium medium carbonated water, 6.5-6.8 g/l, weakly hypotonic.

Warning

Since Karlovy Vary mineral water contains a highly concentrated mix of natural substances, it is not suitable for long-term or unregulated consumption. Your daily dosage is recommended by a doctor. Drink before eating, ideally during a walk directly at the springs. A cup of size 2 dl should be drunk over a 3-10 minute period (with minimum break between cups of 5-10 minutes).
