Treatment in Marianske Lazne

Marianske Lazne is a city in the west of the Czech Republic, the country's second most popular resort after Karlovy Vary. Numerous cold acidic springs of mineral waters brought fame to Marianske Lazne, which healing properties help to effectively treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys and urinary tract, metabolic disorders and a number of other groups of diseases, which we will discuss in detail in the article.

How is treatment carried out in Marianske Lazne

The classic spa treatment in Marianske Lazne begins with a medical examination by a doctor of the spa hotel, general urine and blood tests, anamnesis and treatment. In the future, a final inspection is carried out, if necessary, control examinations are also carried out. Doctors of Marianske Lazne spa hotels do not recommend bringing a lot of handwritten documents, a short medical statement with a diagnosis and appointments from the attending physician in print will suffice. It is also strongly recommended that you bring all the medicines you take with you. Patients with cardiovascular disorders are advised to bring the results of the latest electrocardiography: it can be repeated at the resort, but it will be useful for the doctor to see the dynamics of changes.

Introductory examination by the doctor

As for the recommended terms of treatment, a course of 14 days is considered optimal, which is repeated twice a year with an interval of 6 months. One week for a full course of spa treatment is not enough, since the so-called spa reaction sometimes occurs on day 3-4, the body rebuilds, gets used to taking mineral water, which may be accompanied by a deterioration in appetite, a feeling of tiredness and general malaise. On average, the spa program involves 18-24 procedures per week, i.e. 36-48 procedures for the entire course. Please note that the doctor of the spa hotel, if there are contraindications, can prevent the patient from undergoing certain procedures or reduce the burden on the body by reducing their total number.

The resort provides treatment for children from 6 years age (not in all spa hotels, specify individually). There are two main groups of diseases in which the treatment of children in Marianske Lazne is indicated: respiratory diseases and diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract. The treatment is predominantly prophylactic, inhalations, drinking treatment, massages, gymnastics and other procedures that the doctor considers permissible based on the age and health of the child can be prescribed.

Healing factors of the Marianske Lazne resort

Mineral water

More than 100 mineral springs were found in the vicinity of the resort, 40 springs directly in Marianske Lazne. In drinking treatment and balneotherapy procedures, as a rule, water is used from 6 main medical springs: Forest, Cross, Rudolph, Caroline, Ferdinand and Ambrose. Most of the other springs come with table mineral water. All springs are cold, their temperature ranges from 7-10 °C, the composition includes a lot of carbon dioxide and trace elements. To conduct mineral baths, the water is heated to 34 °C, due to the property of carbon dioxide to evaporate at a temperature of 36 °C. Carbon dioxide is absorbed into the skin, lowers blood pressure, improves heart function, normalizes blood circulation, helps with stress and has a relaxing effect. Let's talk about the main springs in more detail.

Forest Spring

Water from the Forest spring contains a lot of carbon dioxide and bicarbonates; the Forest spring pavilion is open daily from 06:30 to 12:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00, from October to April the pavilion is closed. The drinking water treatment course of the Forest spring promotes the dissolution of urate stones, enhances intestinal motility, restores its mucous membrane, cleanses the intestines, eliminates inflammatory processes and normalizes microflora. With increased acidity, a warm Forest spring is prescribed, with decreased - cold.

Forest spring water is prescribed for inhalation in case of bronchitis, as it has an expectorant effect, improves the functions of the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Salts and decoctions of herbs are also added to mineral water, depending on the doctor's prescription. Water has an effect on the respiratory system even with a classic drinking course, as the minerals contained in the Forest spring pass through the blood to the bronchi and lungs, helping to cough up sputum and reduce inflammation.

Gas treatment

Cross Spring

The Cross spring is the oldest and the most saline in the city - a little less than 10 g of salts are dissolved in a liter of its water, for comparison, the mineralization of Karlovy Vary water is 6-7 g/L. The Cross spring pavilion is open daily from 06:00 to 18:00. Mineral water of the Cross spring is effectively used in the treatment of the gastrointestinal tract diseases, metabolic disorders and allergic diseases associated with digestive disorders. Due to the high sulfate content, water has a strong laxative effect, so the dosage should be strictly observed. Due to the high sodium content, water is contraindicated for people with diseases of the cardiovascular system, hypertension and elderly people.

Rudolph Spring

Rudolph spring water is saturated with calcium, useful for bones, and magnesium - a natural antioxidant that stimulates the elimination of free radicals, as well as necessary for the functioning of nerve cells and muscle tissues of the heart. This water as an additional therapy is prescribed for osteoporosis, and the diuretic effect makes it possible to actively use water for inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract. But this spring is contraindicated in patients with phosphate kidneys stones. The Rudolph spring pavilion is open daily from 06:30 to 17:00 (closed from October to April). The spring is also connected to the Cross colonnade, open daily from 06:00 to 18:00.

Caroline Spring

Caroline spring, rich in magnesium and sodium, is used in the treatment of patients with phosphate and oxalate kidney stones, as well as kidney stones of unknown composition. The water of this spring should be taken with caution in patients with pathology of the cardiovascular system. The Caroline spring pavilion is open around the clock from May to September, and water is also supplied to the Cross colonnade, open daily from 06:00 to 18:00.

Ambrose Spring

Low-mineralized acidic glandular water has been used for a long time to treat anemia, it is prescribed in the presence of phosphate kidneys stones, with cholelithiasis, the diuretic properties of the Ambrose spring water allow it to be used in the treatment of some diseases of the urinary tract, for example, lithiasis. It is also believed that taking this water can improve an erection in men. The spring is unavailable from October to April, the rest of the time it is open around the clock.

Ferdinand Spring

A very salty spring that requires caution when drawing up a course of drinking treatment. Mineral water from the Ferdinand spring enhances the motility of the stomach, restores its mucous membrane, cleanses the intestines, eliminates inflammatory processes, normalizes microflora. Spa hotel "Butterfly" hosts sulfate baths based on water from the Ferdinand spring, during which sulfur is absorbed into the skin, it accumulates and is metabolized in a few days to chondroitin sulfate - the most important component for ligaments, tendons and cartilage, especially in demand for arthrosis. Water procedures are aimed at removing muscle hypertonicity, general relaxation, improving mobility in degenerative diseases, reducing pain. The spring is unavailable from October to April, the rest of the time it is open around the clock.

Rules for the mineral water intake

An individual drinking treatment course is made by a doctor, but a number of general rules and recommendations can be distinguished:

  • Usually, water is taken 3 times a day before meals from a ceramic mug with a volume of 220-250 ml.
  • It is recommended to drink water directly at the spring, since during prolonged contact with air some of the trace elements can evaporate, and iron, for example, from the divalent form in the air oxidizes to trivalent and ceases to be absorbed by the body, other salts can also be absorbed worse.
  • Drink water in small sips, stretching the drinking of one mug for 4-5 minutes. You should take a break of 5-8 minutes between the circles if you are scheduled to take two circles consecutively.
  • In most cases, doctors recommend drinking cold water, as carbon dioxide is better absorbed into the gastric mucosa, more salts are absorbed. Warm springs are recommended only when there are problems with the throat or problems with the liver, pancreas or gall bladder.

Healing mud

An important component of the musculoskeletal system, urological diseases, nervous system and respiratory system treatment are thermal procedures based on local peat mud: baths, wraps and local applications, rectal mud tampons can be prescribed. The therapeutic effect of mud procedures is achieved by heating the tissues in problem areas. The consequence of this is the activation of metabolic processes, blood circulation, which in turn leads to the elimination of inflammatory processes. Mud treatments also relax the muscles and muscles of the internal organs. Peat mud used in Marianske Lazne saturates tissues with microelements that stimulate the synthesis of biologically active substances in the body. Mud procedures have a lot of contraindications, for example, arterial hypertension, heart disease and advanced age. Also, mud procedures are not prescribed for children.

Mud procedures

If mud wraps are contraindicated due to the patient’s cardiovascular diseases, procedures based on bentonite clay, which also stimulate blood circulation and regeneration of the skin and subcutaneous tissues, become an alternative to mud procedures.

Carbon dioxide

In Marianske Lazne, a set of procedures is traditionally carried out related to the use of the healing properties of carbon dioxide. This is explained by the presence of a unique Mary spring, 99.7% consisting of natural gas CO2. Carbon dioxide (both natural and medical) is used in three ways:

  • Dry carbon baths or gas envelopes. The procedure improves blood circulation, enhances blood flow to the brain, kidneys, heart, and lower limbs. Patients who completed the procedure noted an improvement in sexual function.
  • Mary Lake. 20 meters from the Maria spring, in the spa hotel "Maria Spa", a unique procedure is carried out according to the method developed by Dr. Pavel Knara: people sit in a small pool, on the bottom of which spreads natural gas, and put on masks with oxygen. The combination of oxygen therapy and exposure to carbon dioxide contributes to the effective improvement of blood circulation, oxygen saturation of cells and slow down the aging process in them.
  • Gas injections or pneumopuncture. Natural gas (about 30 ml) is injected with a thin needle into the subcutaneous space near the problem areas of the musculoskeletal system or into acupuncture points on the patient’s body. Gas instantly spreads under the skin, is absorbed, expanding the capillaries (a process called hyperemia), which violates the patency of pain impulses from the affected area to the brain. In addition to the analgesic effect, the procedure has an anti-inflammatory effect and improves blood circulation. The course of gas injections can relieve the patient from pain for up to six months.
Gas treatment

Carbon dioxide is used to treat the musculoskeletal system (gas injections), the cardiovascular system (dry carbonic baths and classic carbonic baths), metabolic diseases (dry carbonic baths), neurological problems (gas injections), urological diseases (dry carbonic baths). Natural CO2 has the ability to stimulate the synthesis of hormones testosterone and estradiol, due to which gas procedures improve sexual function in men and weaken menopausal syndrome in women.

Mud procedures

Additional treatment methods

Diet therapy. Diet therapy is a mandatory attribute for the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases, metabolic disorders and kidney stones. Many spa hotels offer nutritionists, restaurants offer meals based on a numbered diet system, as well as individual meals for diabetics, vegetarians, guests with food allergies, lactose intolerance and other intolerances.

Electrotherapy. It is aimed at removing inflammatory processes, eliminating pain, accelerating healing processes, regenerating muscle tissue, reducing edema.


Massage, individual and group gymnastics in the gym and swimming pool. Aimed at eliminating pain, restoring muscle tone and motor functions, especially after injuries and operations.


Breathing exercises. Special breathing exercises improve blood circulation in the lungs, strengthen the respiratory muscles, increase lung ventilation. Respiratory practices, in particular, are the most effective treatment for asthma.

Mud procedures

Oxygen inhalations (oxygen therapy). They are used for allergic reactions, edema, respiratory diseases. Oxygen therapy helps to increase the oxygen content in the blood, reduce hypoxia, activates the pulmonary alveoli.

Mud procedures

Halotherapy and speleotherapy. Staying in a salt cave has an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory effect on the respiratory tract, and promotes sputum production. Visiting the salt cave is recommended for allergic and chronic respiratory diseases.
