Spa treatments:

How do our medicinal waters work?

In addition to the physical properties of water, the chemical effect of substances dissolved in water also prevails. The components of medicinal waters enter the body through our skin and exert specific effects according to their chemical properties. While bathing, we also inhale the solutes in the steam above the water.

Spa treatments can improve the body's regenerative ability and strengthen healthy living. As a result of a successful spa treatment, our patients will be able to return to their previous lives, regain their ability to work and their self-confidence. For our healthy guests, the annual spa physiotherapy treatment plays a big role in maintaining good general condition and ability to work. This can be especially important for those who move too little or unilaterally.

Professionals all over the world agree on the role of swimming as one of the most effective forms of exercise. The beneficial effects of thermal baths on muscle relaxation, circulation improvement and articular cartilage metabolism are also clear.

The magical power of the medicinal water of Cserke:

Due to the high alkali chloride and bicarbonate content of the medicinal water, it has an extremely positive effect on many health problems. Thanks to its beneficial effects, chronic musculoskeletal and rheumatic diseases, as well as gynaecological ailments can also be effectively cured.

Water composition:

Based on the results of the chemical tests (OKI V. 1345/99), the water of the thermal water well No. I of the beach is sodium bicarbonate, fluoride (2.5 mg / l) met silicic acid (68 mg / l H2SiO3) mineral water with a total salt content of 229 mg / l.

Based on the results of chemical tests (OKI V. 1347/99.), the water of the thermal water well number II on the beach is sodium bicarbonate mineral water with a total salt content of 1675 mg / l.

The chemical nature of the water of wells II and III on the beach is the same, their composition can be said to be the same within the limits of natural fluctuations based on the tests.

Geophysical and hydrodynamic measurements and hydrogeological expertise prove the uniformity of the reservoir and the identity of the genetics of the waters. According to the official opinion of the National Directorate General of Spas and Spa of the Office of the National Chief Medical Officer, alkaline chloride, bicarbonate medicinal water belongs to the group of brown, iodine medicinal waters.

Weight bath treatment

The development of the weight bath treatment belongs to a Hungarian rheumatologist, Károly Moll. Pulling treatment can only be applied to the spine or the spine and the larger weight-bearing joints of the lower limb - the hips and knees. The aim of the treatment is to relax the nerves under pressure leaving the spinal canal, to reduce the tone of the muscles next to the spine, and to reduce the movement of the spine, hips and knees. The pull can be a single point through a Glisson pendant placed on the neck. May be two-point when the suspension is provided by two armpit supports; and three-point when realized through the suspension and the two armpit supports. Pulling can be done with the patient's own weight or with lead weights placed on the waist or ankles. We usually use lead weights of 2-3-5 kg ​​for pulling, following the principle of gradation. The principle of gradation also applies to the choice of treatment time, which can be increased from 10 minutes to 20 minutes.

Carbonic acid bath

There are several beneficial effects of using carbon dioxide for medical purposes:

  • the oxygen supply to the tissues is improved
  • the viscosity of the blood decreases
  • the capillaries dilate, circulation improves
  • the coronary arteries of the heart dilate, the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle increases
  • the permeability of occluded or constricted capillaries is enhanced
  • blood pressure decreases - urination increases, venous outflow improves, aquifers are emptied
  • wound healing improves
  • has an antiseptic effect
  • the breathing deepens, the performance of the circulation increases
  • blood distribution to the limbs improves
  • blood circulation in the brain is increased.

The carbonated bath is especially effective in promoting healing after fractures. It is also an excellent supplement for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Due to its circulatory enhancing effect, it can be especially beneficial in the treatment of various lower limb and lumbar sports injuries - sprains, wricks, fractures and muscle injuries - in accelerating healing. It is also worthwhile for athletes to take advantage of the treatment's deepening breathing and lung capacity-increasing effects.

Carbonic acid bath treatment was already known in Roman bath culture. It has been used in Transylvania since the 14th century. It has been used in domestic medicine for a few decades, mainly in the rehabilitation treatment of peripheral vascular diseases and in the treatment of post-infarction conditions.

Underwater hydro massage (Tangentor treatment)

The beneficial physiological effect of the underwater hydro massage treatment is mainly caused by the massaging, pressing effect of the water jet. The jet massage presses on the skin and then reactive blood flow develops when the pressure is released. Improved local blood supply also increases metabolism. The mechanical effect also affects the lymphatic circulation, eliminating lymphatic stagnation. Important effects are muscle tone improvement and pain relief.

Underwater hydro massage is especially recommended:

  • to increase muscle strength, metabolism and flexibility
  • for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders
  • for the treatment of degenerative lesions requiring increased muscle strength,
  • to treat painful muscle nodules
  • circulatory disorders 
  • in case of sports injuries.

It can also be used in traumatological and neurological diseases.


Group underwater Physiotherapy

Group underwater physiotherapy can be used to treat patients with the same or similar conditions who do not need manual control and are able to perform a series of exercises with verbal guidance and correction. Movement therapy in water - underwater physiotherapy - is now a very popular and extremely effective method of treatment. In land movement, gravity as well as external resistance affect the force required for movement and muscle work. There is a much smaller gravitational force in the water (depending on the depth of the water). Movement in water is fundamentally influenced by the hydrodynamic effects of water, i.e. buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, vortices, ripples, flows, friction, and the relative specific gravity of water. The temperature of the water affects the heat production of our body and fundamentally affects muscle tone in terms of movement. The buoyant force acts on the body or body part immersed in water, which moves the relaxed body and body part towards the surface of the water, so it even creates a passive movement, but also helps active movements towards the surface, depending on the speed of movement. The buoyancy facilitates upward movements. This effect can be enhanced by using floating devices that are lighter than water.

These devices can be used to facilitate or make it harder to move (e.g. if pressed down in the water), to lie in the water, to help float. During the movement in the water, waves and vortices are created around the body / part of the body, which make the movement more difficult and require stronger muscle function. Walking and moving in water is definitely good if the lower limbs can be less pressured or unloaded. Water of sufficient depth supports the body from all directions, so there is less risk of falling and resulting injury. Movement in water affects different parts of the locomotor system, the circulatory and respiratory systems, the nervous system. It can be used in all areas of rehabilitation and at all ages for a variety of therapeutic purposes. The goal of underwater gymnastics is to relieve the load on the spine and lower extremities, reduce the load, increase the range of movements, muscle strength, coordinate movement, and improve balance. In water of sufficient depth, walking instruction can be started early without the use of a crutch; by consciously choosing the depth of the water, the load on the lower limbs can be gradually increased, facilitating the transition to full lower limb pressure.

Physiotherapy exercises (dry)

Mc Kenzie exercises:

McKenzie therapy is a special method of examination and treatment of disc herniation and other degenerative diseases of the spine, which is specifically the responsibility of doctors and physiotherapists.

Who is advised to take part in the McKenzie exercises?

Nowadays, in many cases, we are forced into sedentary work. Take as a basis the computer, which is already slowly replacing people, or, for example, driving with various vehicles, in which case the spine is even exposed to vibration. A sedentary lifestyle can lead to disc herniation, lumbago, sciatica, or other degenerative spinal diseases.

The McKenzie method deals with the special examination and treatment of different sections of the spine (neck, back, waist). The goal of treatment is to release the nerve root under pressure. As a result of the McKenzie gymnastics, the disc is pressed back between the vertebrae, which causes the pain to be reduced or eliminated, thus preventing a possible operation.


Physiotherapy is a treatment with natural energies, one of the important areas of which is physical therapy. Physical therapy uses only physical energies for healing, including electro-, photo-, hydro-, thermo- and mechanotherapy procedures.

Physiotherapy treatments at the Spa:


Electricity is applied to the patient's body for therapeutic purposes.

1. Iontophoresis:

A drug solution is delivered to the body through the skin in a direct current.

As a local effect, the administered drug accumulates at the site of entry and has a concentrated, long-lasting, strong effect on local pathological processes.

Indications for iontophoresis:

  • local analgesia,
  • local inflammation reduction,
  • local vasodilation,
  • local muscle spasm release,
  • local tissue softening.

2. Tens treatment:

Through the skin, we use electrical impulses to relieve pain, thereby activating the body’s own pain-relieving mechanisms.

Indications for Tens treatment:

  • sports injuries,
  • lumbago,
  • epicondylitis (golf, tennis elbows),
  • arthrosis (wear and tear),
  • neuralgic pains,
  • bruise, wrick, sprain.

3. Selective stimulus current:

With an electrical stimulus, it induces a physiologically similar contraction of the paralyzed or intact nerve, atrophied muscle, without stimulating the intact muscle.

Purpose of treatment:

  • improving muscle tissue metabolism,
  • atrophy prevention,
  • restoration of muscle strength,
  • stimulation of damaged nerve regeneration.

Indications of selective stimulus current therapy

  • restoration of atrophied muscle strength after surgery,
  • treatment of inactivity atrophy.


A special rhythmic current form between 4 electrodes, which also reaches the deeper structures, has a circulatory-improving and relaxing effect - thus having an analgesic and oedema-reducing effect in the deeper layers.


1. Bioptron:

The radiator generates polarized light with which to perform the treatment.

Therapeutic effects of polarized light:

  • bio stimulating effect (stimulates the body's self-healing processes),
  • enhances cell regeneration,
  • analgesic

Indications for polarized light treatment:

  • surgical or other wounds,
  • burns,
  • arthritis and pain
  • superficial epithelial injuries.

2. Laser

During physical therapy we use low power soft lasers.


  • improves microcirculation (improves blood circulation in the treated area),
  • enhances wound healing,
  • stimulates the formation of new blood vessels,
  • stimulates cells with reduced function,
  • has an anti-inflammatory effect.

3. Ultrasound:

During the treatment, the therapeutic device conducts a current of a certain frequency value on a crystal, which enters a forced motion and releases mechanical energy at the same frequency value.

Effects of ultrasound treatment:

  • anti-inflammatory,
  • muscle relaxant effect,
  • softening effect,
  • analgesic effect.

Indications for ultrasound treatment:

  • discopathy (disc degeneration),
  • chronic arthritis
  • tendonitis,
  • inflammation around the shoulder joint.

Magnetic therapy:

Magnetic therapy is a physical therapy method that uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate the regeneration of severely damaged tissues to support self-healing processes. It can help reduce complaints, especially if the bones, joints and cartilage are damaged. I recommend its use in fractures, osteoporosis, arthrosis, rheumatism, arthritis, spurs, spinal hernia, lumbago and many other conditions, but also in the case of beneficial lymphedema.

Hydro galvanic treatment:

During hydro galvanic treatment, the mechanical factor of the water and the analgesic effect of the current are preferably combined. Methods of application: the so-called compartment galvanic (for treating hands and feet) or electric tub bath (for treating whole body). In the case of a compartment galvanic, the patient places both hands or both feet, possibly all 4 limbs, in cells filled with water. The current sensitivity is individual. The treatment lasts 15 minutes.

Therapeutic massage

Therapeutic massage within physiotherapy is a treatment performed by a medical masseur, which is always provided on a medical indication. Its purpose is rehabilitation, most of the time it focuses only on the diseased part of the body. Therapeutic massage - a form of massage performed for medical purposes, on the instructions and in accordance with the instructions of a doctor, based on the dishes of Swedish massage.

Therapeutic massage includes Swedish, segmental, connective tissue and periosteal (bone) massage. After the massage, the masseur uses the appropriate movements and mobilization techniques.

These techniques also relieve pain by causing joint regeneration, loosening of adhering muscles, and blood flow.

Swedish - Refreshing massage

The most common type of Western massage. Its original form is a combination of massage and exercise. The masseur refreshes the body with smoothing, rubbing, vibrating and kneading movements. The physical and neurohormonal effects of massage promote the healing of any diseases. Swedish massage reduces pain (e.g., stress headaches), accelerates recovery from injuries, prevents atrophy of unused muscles, relieves insomnia, increases alertness, but above all, promotes relaxation and reduces the effects of stress.

This treatment is one of the best known massages because it covers the whole body and is aimed at massaging the muscles, tendons and joints. It promotes the proper functioning of movement functions, relaxes painfully tense, spasmodic muscles. The most common tricks of Swedish massage are kneading, rubbing, smoothing and vibrating movements. With the help of smoothing movements, it evenly distributes the massage oil on the body, thus causing general relaxation of the body. Subsequent deep touches are always directed towards the heart, which stimulates blood circulation and warms the muscles. Then the kneading continues on the back, upper chest, legs and buttocks. It relaxes the muscles, separates the rigid muscle fibres, increases the blood supply to the muscles. We use different forms of tapping to tone the muscles, which can be strong, light, slow and fast. Rubbing is done with two fingers on special points on the body. During the massage, we use a cream or oil according to the guest's requirements.
