Naturally Carbonated Mineral Baths of Marienbad
What is a naturally carbonated mineral bath
This is a signature treatment, exclusively provided in the spa resort of Marienbad using the naturally carbonated mineral waters that spring out from the ground locally. The mineral water with dissolved gaseous CO2 is heated to temperatures between 32-34°C to preserve as much CO2 as possible and to ensure acceptable bath temperatures. After heating, the mineral water flows into an individual bathtub. The carbon dioxide fizzes onto the skin, producing a relaxing, tickling sensation and a reddening of the submerged skin. The bath is followed by a relaxing dry wrap, to ensure maximum benefit from the treatment.
How a naturally carbonated mineral bath helps
The gas is absorbed through the skin into the body, where it widens the blood capillaries, thus reducing blood pressure and improving heart pump function. It also suppresses feelings of pain and cold, so after a while you will feel warm in the bath despite a relative perception of cold at the beginning. Several treatments will result in more efficient blood circulation all over your body, improving the function of all your inner organs (including the heart, kidneys and reproductive organs) as well as reducing stiffness and pain in the muscles and joints. Moreover, the carbonated bath relieves stress and anxiety.
