Hévíz's Natural Resources

Efficient thermal water and unique healing mud for locomotor disorders

Lake Hévíz is a geological rarity. It is Europe’s largest biologically active natural thermal lake and disposes of more valuable qualities for balneotherapy than almost any other body of water in the world.

It is also the source of both famous healing resources of the destination – the thermal mineral water and the unique and deservedly famous healing mud.

Thermal Mineral Water

The warm lake water hovers between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius, an ideal temperature for keeping body systems in balance. The blend of dissolved and gaseous substances: mainly calcium, magnesium, sulphur, hydrogen carbonate and carbonic acid makes the water rich in health-giving bacteria. This mix also keeps it unusually physically heavy, causing hydrostatic pressure on limbs to boost blood and lymph circulation. The gas bubbles in the water penetrate skin to support the nervous system, and they evaporate, mixing with oxygen in the air, to create natural inhalation therapy.

Healing Mud

Hévíz peat mud carpets the bottom of the lake, in places 7 metres thick, after millennia of geological and biological processes. This soft, dark grey mud is packed onto body parts, acting as local heat therapy for easing swollen joints and muscular tension while also supplying nutrients to cartilage and connective tissue. Experiments with Hévíz mud have proved its anti-ageing effects on skin: stimulating cell metabolism and generating collagen for a soft and renewed complexion.
