TOP 5 WELLNESS RETREATS
1. CO2 Mineral Baths
Bathing in natural mineral water that is rich in carbon dioxide has an invigorating effect on the body: it expands capillaries in the skin, triggers a reflex expansion of veins and increases the blood flow. The drop in peripheral resistance eases the work of the heart and brings more oxygen and other vital substances into the organs. The improved circulation also helps the body to remove waste matter faster and in larger quantities. The functioning of the organs improves and the body is stronger, regenerates faster and has improved resistance. Try it in Radenci Health Resort!
Ayurveda is an Indian holistic method based on the oldest traditions in the world. Ayurvedic treatments are excellent supplementary treatments to Western medicine. The treatments are beneficial if the body is exhausted, if it is adversely affected by the effects of modern civilisation, in the case of joint problems, backache, stress, asthma, hypertonia, stomach complaints and skin problems. In line with its basic principles, it assists in the purification of the body and the activation of self-healing processes through a variety of oil massages, oil infusions, heat therapy, inhalation, bathing and a conscious lifestyle.
