Thermal Baths of Piešt’any

Balneotherapy, Thermal and Mineral Baths

What is a thermal bath
Rich in minerals and warmed by the heat of the Earth’s interior, thermal water is the basis of our natural treatments in the Slovak spa of Piešťany. As the natural temperature of our thermal springs is around 68°C, the water has to be cooled down to a temperature suitable for bathing, which is usually between 36-39°C. It contains various useful salts and trace elements as well as a small amount of hydrogen sulphide. Traditionally, clients bathe naked in large indoor common pools, called Mirror Pools (men and women separately). Your thermal bathing treatment will conclude with a 15-minute full body dry wrap.

How a thermal bath helps

The heat of still thermal water widens the blood vessels, thus improving blood circulation and relaxing the muscles. Further it alleviates stiffness and pain in chronic joint and spine disorders. Thanks to the content of sulphur, the elasticity of the connective tissues is enhanced as well.

Individual Thermal Bath

In case you prefer a private bath tub over common pools, you may indulge in an individual thermal bath. It is as effective as bathing in the Mirror Pool, only you do not get distracted by other clients.

Individual Thermal Bubble Bath

The fizziness of this bath is caused by small bubbles of normal air pumped into the still thermal water. During the treatment you lie relaxed as small air bubbles gently caress and coat your skin. The treatment is ideal for general relaxation, as there is a pleasant soothing feeling of general tickling from the bubbles. During the treatment, the heat from the thermal water helps the blood vessels dilate, reducing blood pressure and relaxing the muscles.
