Features of natural healing factors

The basis of treatment at the resort is the use of healing properties of local mineral waters and mud. Mineral water comes from two springs, Josef I and Josef II, with a surface temperature of 12 °C. In 1 liter of mineral water 3400 mg of mineral substances are dissolved (sodium, magnesium and calcium prevail) and up to 680 mg of hydrogen sulfide are dissolved, which gives the water a characteristic sharpish smell.

Features of natural healing factors

Therapeutic sulphuric muds are formed in the process of seepage of hydrogen sulphide mineral water through wood soils. The mud is removed and sent for "maturation" in special pools for at least one year in hydrogen sulfide layer water. During this year the mud acquires a special consistency and thermal stability, which allows you to keep warm for 4 times longer than water, and to warm even the deepest parts of the body.

Therapeutic sulfuric muds

Procedures based on hydrogen sulphide water and mud

Mineral baths are based on water heated to 36-38 °C. The duration of the procedure is 10-15 minutes. After the procedure a short rest is required. Both general baths and local baths for upper and lower limbs are carried out. Smrdaky mineral water has anti-inflammatory and healing properties, has a beneficial effect on immunological changes in the body, soothes irritated skin and improves its elasticity. Water also prevents loss of elastin and collagen in cartilage, tendons and connective tissue.

Mineral baths

For partial and general mud applications, a thin layer of mud with a temperature of 43-45 °C is applied to the affected body parts. The duration of the procedure is 20 minutes. Muds help to reduce local edema around the joints, relieve muscle tension and improve nutrition of intervertebral discs, cartilage and connective tissues by improving blood circulation, as well as increase anti-inflammatory activity of the body.
