Whirlpool Baths

Hydropathical procedures are considered to be one of the best combinations of physiotherapeutic procedures, especially when it comes to treating joint and spine disorders.

The positive effect of underwater massage treatment is caused by thermal and mechanical factors. A hot bath relaxes muscles, increases their contractility and lessens muscle ache, which allows making an active massage and influencing deeper tissues.

Water jet massage causes redistribution of blood, improves blood and lymph circulation, stimulates metabolism and recovery processes in tissues, contributes to quicker resolution of inflammations, increases joint and lumbar-spine mobility. Protracted treatment increases efficiency and normalizes sleep. Shower massage improves respiratory function, removes peripheral arterial vasospasms, alters systemic hemodynamics, especially in case of cardiovascular diseases.
