Thermal water and mud: treatment and prevention of diseases

Diseases treated with thermal water and mud

Treatments with thermal water and mud, considered a natural medicine, have beneficial effects on the body due to the presence of active ingredients that have an anti-inflammatory efficacy equal to chemical drugs, but with the advantage of having no side effects. Treatments are given for therapeutic, rehabilitation and preventive purposes.

Mud therapy cycles and thermal therapies are ideal for chronic diseases such as arthrosis, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. When combined with a healthy and balanced diet and an active lifestyle, they lead to definite advantages and benefits, which have been scientifically proven.

If the problem is localised in the respiratory tract, thermal water is nebulized and is particularly suitable due to its antiseptic action, secretion fluidification and normalisation of respiratory mucous.

Bio-thermal clay activates analgesic and pain-relieving processes, and water, with the contribution of ozone, loosens the muscles and restores movement to the joints.
In addition, thermal therapies are particularly suitable for rehabilitation after trauma, fractures and surgery. There are no contraindications and mud can be applied when prostheses and metal plates are present.

Mud therapies are also recommended for sports people, whose joints and muscles are subject to stress and strain. The bio-thermal clay used at Hotel Terme Venezia is ideal for dealing with episodes of inflammation and restoring elasticity and tone to the whole body.
