The doctor clarifies the diagnosis (if necessary, prescribes additional examinations or laboratory tests), determines possible contraindications to certain procedures and prescribes an individual treatment course. In addition, doctor-balneologist, taking into account the peculiarities of the patient's health, prescribes the optimal schedule of the bathing duration in the thermal lake Heviz, the visit to which is considered the main therapeutic procedure at the resort. It is recommended to bring with you the available laboratory results, medical examinations and the conclusion of your attending physician (no later than six months ago) - this will save time and money for medical examinations at the resort.

Feedback from our customers about spa hotels in Heviz

Helen Fatkulbayanova 22.03.2020

Hotel near the lake. A ticket for 10 hours gave us the opportunity to go to the baths 5 times or 5 days in a row. Good support was provided by our guide, Lajos, especially when visiting a doctor. Very pleasantly surprised by the doctor's professionalism in the clinic, the examination and recommendations for treatment were thorough.

The food at the hotel is varied, but some dishes are salty.

The hotel is excellent. The hotel's chef is a wizard. But most of all the company Sanatoriums pleased: the site works without errors, the staff quickly respond to questions via w-app, transfer drivers are never late! Next time we will contact your company for a trip to the hotel Bonvital.

Irina Ovechkina 01.03.2020

We liked the rest at the spa hotel Evropa Fit very much. We took a package with two meals a day without treatment. Very tasty breakfasts (from 7 to 10) and dinners (17-30 to 21) on the buffet system and afternoon soup (from 12-14). Variety and pleasure with meals was provided. The staff is friendly, courteous and hardworking. It is good that staying at the hotel does not depend on the weather - a wonderful wellness area with saunas, with 6 swimming pools (with hydromassage, thermal, children's, jacuzzi, etc.) . We were also delighted by the concert of Budapest operetta artists. The hotel has a good room for playing with children - programs from 12-00 to 16-00 daily. We felt the care and attention from the staff and had a very good rest. Thank you!

How to treat the musculoskeletal system in Heviz

The treatment in Heviz is based on the combined effect of several therapeutic methods on the body:

Hydrotherapy. The main procedure is daily bathing in the thermal lake Heviz. Staying in the thermal water of the lake relaxes muscles well, improves blood circulation, relieves edema, has an anti-inflammatory effect, stabilizes pressure, improves joint mobility, normalizes metabolism in tissues, increases immunity. Radon contained in the lake Heviz in small amounts activates the mechanisms of self-recovery of the body.


How to properly take water procedures in lake Heviz

  • In the thermal lake Heviz water procedures can be carried out at any time - its temperature does not drop below 24 °C even in the winter months.
  • Swimming in the thermal lake Heviz should not be uncontrolled, it is necessary to consult with a doctor in the spa hotel. Thermal water has a very strong effect on the body. That's why it is recommended to swim mainly passively, to stay in the water no more than 20 minutes in one session (especially for people with heart disease). At the same time, movements in the water contribute to a more active flow into the body through the pores of the skin of useful trace elements contained in the Heviz water.
  • When taking water procedures in the thermal lake, it is necessary to periodically take a static vertical position in the water - this helps to stretch the spine.
  • The healing water of lake Heviz stimulates the hormonal activity of the adrenal glands, so the body itself suppresses inflammatory processes and painful sensations pass quickly enough.
  • Bathing in the lake is not recommended for children under 14 due to the influence of Heviz's thermal water on the body's hormonal system.

There are private pools with thermal mineral water at Heviz spa hotels. But in most of them the thermal water is renewed once a week, so the useful microelements disappear from it. Lake Heviz has a unique natural circulation of thermal water (completely renewed in 48 hours), so bathing in the lake is much more effective than in the thermal pool.

In addition, bathing in a thermal lake is much more effective than in a thermal pool, also for these reasons:

Firstly, in the thermal lake there is a constant movement of water and particles of healing peat mud, so the lifting power of the lake water is higher than in the pool. Swimming in the lake therefore requires less physical activity (which is especially important for people with joint mobility disorders).

Secondly, in the thermal lake there is an exchange of mineral substances between the water and the peat mud at the bottom. The mud is enriched with the minerals it receives from the water and the water with organic substances from the mud. Thus, while bathing in the lake, a person is exposed to a unique complex of microelements, which cannot be repeated in the thermal pool environment.

Thirdly, the thermal lake contains Thiobacillus bacteria, which penetrate the body, affect metabolism and improve cartilage tissue.

Mud therapy, that is very effective in relieving joint pains and inflammatory processes. Mud procedures strengthen blood circulation, saturate cartilage tissue with useful micro elements, remove toxins from the body. Depending on the specific indications, Heviz has general mud applications (for the whole body) and local mud applications (mainly for joint problems).

It is important to remember that common mud applications are undesirable for patients with cardiological problems as they put pressure on the heart. Depending on the cardiovascular system function and general symptomatology, the doctor prescribes hot or warm local mud applications.

The unique humic applications are also used in Heviz. The humic acid concentrate obtained from Heviz's therapeutic mud is used in wraps, which, unlike the mud procedures, can be used by patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. The humino concentrate contains the same useful elements as peat mud and is easily assimilated by human cells. This procedure promotes complete muscle relaxation, improves blood circulation, removes toxins from the body, removes inflammatory processes and relieves pain.

Mud therapy

Physiotherapy. The main physiotherapeutic procedure at Heviz resort is underwater spine traction - this procedure was developed and first applied in Heviz. The patient plunges into a pool with thermal mineral water and is supported in an upright position by a special device. Thermal water (usually 38 °C) relaxes muscles well and under the influence of natural body weight or additional weights (hanging on different parts of the body depending on the doctor's prescription) the spine is extending. In this way, pinched nerve endings are released, excessive tension in the spine is relieved, vertebral discs become in place, curvature correction of the spinal column takes place.

Some spa hotels in Heviz also offer unique procedures to correct the spine with the newest medical equipment.


Electrotherapy, which effectively eliminates inflammatory processes in problem regions of the musculoskeletal system, reduces pain syndromes, stimulates regenerative processes in damaged tissues.


Heviz resort is also a natural inhalation area. The fact is that the air in the resort is saturated with minerals that evaporate by lake Heviz. That's why it's good for people with chronic respiratory diseases to come to Heviz.
