Slovakia Spas

Slovakia Spas in Piešťany offer a centuries old alternative treatment for Arthritis and Rheumatism. Based on the curative effects of the sulphurous natural springs. Our Medical Spas are staffed with highly qualified Rheumatologists who speak multiple languages, including English. Thousands of healed visitors, doctors as well as scientists have been trying to uncover the secrets of the healing power of Piešťany Spa for more than 600 years.

Piestany Thermal Waters

The primary factor in healing is the thermal water rising from a depth of 2,000 meters and bringing certain specific compounds and the energy of the Earth’s magma. This is the main element for creating a unique local product healing sulphur mud. It is a special peloid whose composition is the result of a long term reaction between the thermal water, local soft rocks and specific bacterial micro flora. These effects of the thermal water and sulphuric mud are supported by optimal climatic conditions with the most number of sunny days in this part of Europe, the richness of the greenery and location of the spa on the Spa Island, which is an oasis of tranquility and safety. And furthermore, there is the long-term tradition of proven healing procedures, where the most important factor is a comprehensive spa stay. These factors favorably cooperate in healing or reducing the effects of chronic disabilities of the locomotive apparatus, various forms of rheumatic arthritis, scoliosis, and post-accident states of the locomotive apparatus and spine as well as a wide range of specific problems including certain diseases of civilization and the impact of stress.

There are ten springs in Piestany with 1,500 mg mineral substances per liter of mineral water, hydrogen sulphide and other free gases. The water springs from tectonic breaks at a depth of about 2,000 meters and is trapped at a depth of 60 m, which guarantees its constant chemical composition and temperature. The water temperature of the springs is 67 to 69 ºC. It is a medium mineralized hot water containing sulphates, hydrogen carbonate, calcium, sodium, and sulphur compounds. It is suitable both for bathing as well as a drinking cure.

The sulphur mud is a product from Slovak Healing Spa Piešťany produced from peloid extracted from the bed of a side channel of the River Váh. It is used for partial and full-body packs, producing extraordinarily positive healing effects.

Location

The spa and the town of Piešťany are situated in the valley of the River Váh, 162 meters above sea level. The valley is open to the south and extremely sunny. The sun shines an average of 265 days a year. However, large areas of water in the surroundings of the spa produce a pleasant feeling of freshness, even on the hottest days, while the dense greenery of spa and town parks offers an attractive place for relaxation.

The main flow of the River Váh that flows behind the area of the Spa to Sĺňava Lake and its side channel where some of the thermal springs are located creates the river island where the first spa facility was established in 1800. This island is protected against floods, traffic noise, dust and exhalants as well as against anything that would affect the tranquility or safety of its visitors. The main accommodation complexes of the spa are located here, as well as balneotherapy centers, swimming pools, social clubs, sport facilities, all surrounded by the greenery of the spa parks. Owing to its position and the care of spa personnel, the Spa Island is one of the safest places at this time when the world has become a more dangerous place.
