Whirlpool Bath

What is a whirlpool bath

This treatment is taken in a warm bath at the temperature of 33-36°C with currents of whirling water. The whirlpool bath lasts between 15-20 minutes and is followed by a dry wrap and bed rest for another 10-15 minutes. It is an individual procedure.


How a whirlpool bath helps

The effects of whirling and warm water currents are multiple: the vigorous water massage improves blood circulation and metabolism, relaxes stiff muscles, joints and a stressed mind, and stimulates nerve receptors in the skin and dermis to facilitate body awareness.

Whirlpool bath for limbs

Some of our spa hotels also offer a partial whirlpool bath either for the upper or lower limbs. This means that you sit comfortably in a chair and either your arms or your legs are immersed in two separate tubs with whirling water. The whirlpool bath is suitable for the treatment of conditions such as trauma, chronic inflammation and nervous disorders. It helps to improve the blood circulation, relieve muscle and joint stiffness, and enhance body awareness. Also, it is a good overall regeneration treatment after an excessive physical exertion or an athletic performance.

Musculoskeletal diseases, orthopaedic and accident rehabilitation, stress, fatigue, some digestive problems, metabolic and circulatory diseases, some neurological diseases, convalescence after oncological treatment
