How is treatment carried out in Druskininkai

Treatment at the resort begins with the fact that the guest, after checking into the spa hotel, is scheduled to a doctor's appointment. During the initial examination, the doctor of the spa hotel or city hospital (for example, in the case of living in the spa hotel "Europa Royale") collects an anamnesis, examines the medical documentation brought by the patient, if necessary gives directions for additional laboratory and instrumental studies, and makes an individual course of treatment. If there is a need, then the patient can get an advice from a cardiologist, endocrinologist, gynecologist, neurologist, reflexologist or other doctor for an additional fee.

Doctors of the resort recommend bringing with you short medical statements from the attending physician containing information about the diagnoses made, the results of the examinations, the treatment passed and the drugs taken. Patients with cardiovascular disease are advised to bring with them the results of the latest electrocardiography.

Introductory examination by a doctor

The optimal duration of spa treatment in Druskininkai is 21 days. Repeated spa treatment is possible every 6 months, in case of chronic diseases, repeated treatment courses allow to prolong remission.

Age restrictions are individual for each spa hotel, but it is worth noting the spa hotel "Belorus": there are 9 pediatricians working there, there is a separate medical building for children, children from 4 years old are accepted for treatment, including those with cerebral palsy.

Healing factors of the Druskininkai resort

Mineral water

Druskininkai is known for its numerous sodium-calcium chloride waters springs with a high content of magnesium of varying degrees of mineralization, and the most of the resort's spa hotels have their own wells. Highly mineralized water, e.g. from Egle-1 and Egle-2 springs (42 g/L and 27 g/L, respectively) is diluted with fresh water to acceptable values immediately before intake: Egle-1 to 4-6 g/L, Egle-2 to 7-9 g/L. Undiluted brine is used to rinse the throat and wash the skin, rejuvenating the face. Basic information about the main mineral springs of Druskininkai is given in the table below.

How the drinking course of mineral water affects the body

Drinking treatment is prescribed mainly for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Mineral water should be drunk warm or hot in case of diseases with increased gastric juice secretion, as this water temperature reduces pain and relieves spasms. Also in this case, water should be drunk quickly, it reaches the intestines more quickly and this will prevent the excitatory effect of secretion, and to stimulate the motor skills, water should be drunk cold, with large sips, just before eating. Each person's body can react to the water mineral composition in its own way, so the drinking course is usually started with a quarter of a cup at a time, after which the dosage is gradually increased and reduced to one cup. Traditionally, the dosage is determined on the basis of 3 ml per 1 kg of body weight, but the exact course of treatment can only be determined by a physician.

Particular attention should be paid to drinking treatment for patients with cardiac diseases due to the high sodium content, as well as for people with diarrhea, as water has a laxative effect. Intake of mineral water helps to normalize stomach acidity, removes inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, improves liver function, regulates intestinal function and metabolism, stimulates the exchange of hormones and electrolytes.

Radon water safety for health

Balneotherapeutic procedures are carried out on the basis of mineral water: classic mineral, carbon dioxide, pearl, ozone, whirlpool, turpentine, herbal, iodine-bromine baths. Underwater massage, Scottish shower, Charcot shower and a number of other water treatments are based on ordinary water. Mineralization of water in the baths ranges from 15 g/L to 40 g/L, the recommended concentration is determined by the doctor of the spa hotel. Water procedures lower blood pressure, dilate blood vessels, improve blood circulation, eliminate pain and muscle cramps, have a beneficial effect on skin condition. If it takes up to 20 minutes for adults to use mineral baths, it is prescribed for children for 6-7 minutes, while the mineralization is reduced and no stimulating additives such as white turpentine are used.

The popularity of the resort is the "vertical bath" procedure, which is carried out in mineral water at a temperature of 34 °C and consists of several stages: exercises near the swimming pool wall, on special beds, on trapezes and in rescue circles. The set of exercises carried out in the pool affects all systems of the musculoskeletal system, relaxes muscles and eliminates pain. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes.

Mud therapy

Another effective healing factor in Druskininkai is the peat mud extracted in the Jovaisiai quarry, which is 25 kilometers from the resort. Fresh mud is transported to the spa hotels every day, is not reused, and is transferred to farmers for fertilizer. Peat mud is used to hold mud baths, applications, tampons for men and women, mud tampons for gums. The main indications for the use of mud therapy are diseases of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system, and the main contraindications are cardiovascular diseases, some complications of diabetes mellitus and oncological processes. The temperature of the mud in the bath reaches 36-40 °C, but if it seems too hot to you, you can ask to cool it. Peat mud stimulates the activity of enzymes, accelerates the regeneration processes, inhibits inflammation.

Mud therapy

Also in the spa hotels of Druskininkai use sapropelic, white mud, which has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. White mud is organic sludge of existing and extinct freshwater lakes. Its medicinal properties are valued for higher thermal performance than medicinal peat mud. The duration of the mud baths and wraps is about 20 minutes.


Druskininkai is characterized by a moderately cold, mild climate with high rainfall. There are no industrial enterprises in the city, the resort is surrounded by pine forest, the air is saturated with negative air ions, which increase the mood and performance of visitors. In summer, pine trees produce antimicrobial and bactericidal substances, which in total allows us to talk about Druskininkai, as a natural inhaler. Just staying in Druskininkai favorably affects the respiratory system and alleviates the condition in patients with chronic bronchopulmonary diseases.

Additional treatment methods

The most important component of the musculoskeletal system treatment in Druskininkai is kinesiotherapy in the gym and in water, in groups and individually. The patient’s muscles are unloaded, the coordination of movements and, in general, the motor activity of the joints are improved. The course of treatment can also be supplemented by the following procedures:

  • Massage general, partial, reflex, soft and relaxing techniques
  • Hardware physiotherapy, including on the most modern equipment: cardiological simulators with ECG and blood saturation, exposure to a pulsed magnetic field, StimaWell, devices with biological feedback
