Thermal bathing cure
Try the original cure with thermal water, which reaches our hotel directly from the spring with about 40°C!
The thermal water – our central spa therapy – is weakly mineralised and enriched with natural radon. Tests have show that precipitation water at an altitude of about 1,800 metres seeps to a depth of 2,000 metres, heats up at that depth and again rises to the surface at an altitude of about 1,000 metres – from 16 different springs and at a volume of five million litres per day.
What is radon and how does this radioactive substance work?
Mild, natural radioactivity is thoroughly positive for the body when taken as a part of a cure. The radon inert gas escapes from the thermal water and enters the body through the respiratory tract and the skin. It unfolds its healing effect there before it completely disintegrates after about three hours. The defence mechanism in the organism is stimulated and the natural warmth fosters circulation.
Healing success is enhanced by the altitude of the Gastein spa region. Our organism adapts to the height, more red blood corpuscles are produced and the capacity of providing the tissue with oxygen in increased.
