Before entering the bath

Before you start for thermal baths, be calm, rested, in a good mood, having left behind problems and sorrows.

The doctor of the baths will give treatment advice and inform you about any contraindications in case of any health problem that does not allow the use of thermal baths. If any reaction or malaise occurs during the hydrotherapy (baths-inhalations), it must be reported immediately to the doctor of the baths.

Bath therapy should be done on an empty stomach or after digestion, after three hours have passed since the last meal.

During the bath therapy

Immerse your whole body in the water up to the neck doing exercises that help to relax the muscles, but being careful not to get tired during the bath.
