Gyógykezelések foglaltsága

At Hungarospa’ Medical Spa you can choose from more than 40 kinds of treatment.. These treatments can have the best effect if they are combined with each other. Among other therapies, we use massage, mud treatments, weight baths, underwater jet massage, underwater physiotherapies, various electro therapies, and the most modern soft-laser treatments.

Nowadays, the emphasis is on complex physiotherapies which combine bathing therapies with other treatments such as: physiotherapy, mechanotherapy, electrotherapy. Mud treatments are carried out using mud wraps made from our own mud which is obtained from drillings and from the sediment of the thermal water.

About the thermal water >>

Our medical research >>

The balneotherapy treatments work only if it is done in the form of a longer therapy, lasting for at least two weeks.

At the beginning of the treatment, a specialist rheumatologist physiotherapist will carry out an examination and the treatments will be given at the time and in the quantities prescribed by the doctor.

The rheumatologists of the spa carry out their daily work under the direction of Dr. Judit Fehér, the head physician.
Spa and sauna use is not recommended for children under the age of 14! Both put a strain on the circulation and heart function.

Medical treatments

Hydro-balneotherapy treatments: – Every hydrotherapy in our facility is done by using thermal water

  • Weight-bath therapy: we apply a pulling force on the body in a specially constructed pool; in the case of the patients being suspended from their necks in the pool, we also implement the usage of an electric tool which vibrates, thus relieving the pressure from the intervertebral discs and nerve roots, mitigating the shrinkage of nerves and muscles, relieving muscle-cramps.
  • Underwater jet massage: besides the water’s chemical and physical parameters, the massage has a muscle tone reducing effect, increasing blood flow in the peripheral blood vessels. We recommend these therapies in the case of myalgies, muscle spasms, contractures, circulatory problems, and in the case of balance disorders in the autonomic nervous system.
  • Carbonated baths: during treatments carbon dioxide makes the skin visibly red and even after 2 or 3 minutes after the treatment the dilation of blood vessels can be felt. Its blood-pressure reducing effect is long lasting only after multiple therapies. It is beneficial for people suffering from chronic artery and circulatory problems, while also speeding up the healing process of wounds. It reduces blood viscosity, which is important in the case of post-heart attack rehabilitation.
  • Underwater physiotherapy: belongs to the group of hydrotherapies, producing its effect directly through the water’s physical and thermal stimuli. Its advantage is that the exercises require less muscle power, making it doable for people, who otherwise would not be able to do it.

Mud treatment

Mud treatments are carried out using mud wraps made from our own mud which is obtained from drillings and from the sediment of the thermal water. Wrappings can be done on the whole body or just on individual parts of the body. The mud is usually applied on the body at a temperature of 42°C, creating a 2-3 cm thick layer, which is then covered with sheets, rubber-sheets, and blankets. From a gynecological point of view mud treatment is beneficial in the case of inflammations, adnexitis, parametritis, menstrual problems, underdevelopment of the genitalia or sterility. After two or three therapies a year, infertile women reported conception on several occasions.


  • Massages: our professional masseurs perform Swedish massage and reflexology massage. These massages have painkilling, muscle tone regulating, circulation improving, fatigue reducing effects, while also improving the mental state of the patient. Reflexology massages can help in the healing of some diseases of internal organs.
  • Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy means the execution of therapeutic exercises based on precise clinical examination. These therapies are carried out either in groups or individually. Our physiotherapists keep an eye on every patient during group therapies, correcting bad execution of exercises and demonstrating them if necessary. With physiotherapy, diseases can be prevented or treated on the level of the whole body or on the level of individual organs.

Electrotherapy, ultrasound therapy, light therapy

Our spa is equipped with modern devices operated by professionals. In the case of nerve, muscle, and joint pain, we use low-frequency treatments, which reduces pain and improves circulation. We often use galvan therapy to deliver the medicine into the body of the patient in the form of iontophoresis. Hydrogalvan therapies combine the benefits of hydrotherapy and electricity really well. We use this type of treatment in the case of diseases affecting multiple joints and parts of the body: rheumatoid, arthritis, soft tissue rheumatism, fibromyalgia. We use certain electric impulses (TENS, dynamic electricity) to reduce pain while other types are used to stimulate muscles. Mid-frequency therapies (interference), magnotherapy, and high-frequency therapies (short wave-length, decimeter wave, microwave) are used to reduce pain and inflammations, improving blood circulation as well. Because of the physical and biological characteristics of ultrasound therapy, it has multiple uses: pain and inflammation reduction, antispasmodic use, fibrolytic and exfoliating effects. Because of these effects, this therapy type is often used in the treatment of locomotive diseases during physiotherapy.

From the available light therapies, the infrared light therapy reduces pain, stiffness, and edema, while improving blood circulation and the healing of wounds. We have achieved good results in the treatment of psoriasis, using the photobiological characteristics of ultraviolet radiation. The soft laser treatment increases metabolism, blood circulation, and helps with tissue regeneration, while also reducing inflammation and pain. This is why we primarily use it in the treatment of degenerative, inflammatory locomotive diseases, or in the process of follow-up treatments after injuries and operations.

Water drinking and inhalation therapy

According to new research, water from deep wells, which is optimal for bathing therapies, is not recommended to be consumed as part of a water drinking therapy because of its high metaboric-acid content. However, water from the upper layers, enriched with carbon dioxide, is perfect for water therapy. The Pávai Vajna mineral water is high in hydrogen carbonate, which makes it effective in the treatment of digestive diseases, acid related conditions, catarrh and ulcer related diseases. Because of the mineral water’s inflammation reducing possibility, it is effective against bronchial disorders, in which case it is used as part of an inhalation therapy, improving breathing problems.


The newest treatment available in the Hungarospa Medical Spa is mofetta (i.e. carbon dioxide medical gas therapy). Before the usage of mofetta, a medical examination is obligatory. Therapies are prescribed by our own rheumatologists. The carbon dioxide gas diffuses through the skin and due to its blood vessel dilating effect, it is beneficial to the peripheral circulation and microcirculation, and indirectly influences the cardiovascular functions by having a hemodynamic effect. The treatments are done in booths, filled with CO2, which is an odorless, invisible gas that is heavier than air. Because of the blood vessel dilating effect the diffusing gas creates a pleasant warmth in the skin.

At the beginning of the therapy, a medical examination takes place, and based on the result, the rheumatologist prescribes the appropriate amount of time the guest can spend in the booth.

The rheumatologists of the spa work under the supervision of our head physician Dr. Judit Fehér.

Specialised cures

„ Lower back pain-STOP” (lumbago, discopoatia, discus hernia)

During their lives, nearly 60-85% of the population suffers from lower back pain. The reason of the vast majority of lower back pain cases are degenerative spine diseases.
Spinal degenerative diseases are abrasive deformations of different spinal structures (intervertebral discs, vertebral bodies, ligaments and articular extensions) occurring with age. The base of degenerative diseases is cartilage degeneration. Osteoporosis is also a common disease and if associated with degenerative spinal diseases, may increase lower back pain.
Balneo-and physiotherapy have a significant role in the treatment of chronic lower back pain. Numerous studies prove the effectiveness and long-term effect of balneotherapy and weight-bath treatment: pain reduction, improvement of mobility functions and life quality. Besidesthe physical complaints of elderly patients, it also has good effects on psychological problems.
A súlyfürdővel elérhető, hogy a meleg vízben az izmok ellazulnak, a gerinc megnyúlik, és ennek következtében a porcsérv visszahúzódik, amit a testre nehezedő hidrosztatikai nyomás is elősegít. A meleg vízben a kellemes érzés következtében jelentősen nő a kezelés hatásfoka, mivel az izomzat ellazul.

Therapeutic treatment of joint abrasion (arthrosis)

The (osteo) arthrosis (osteoarthritis) and spondylosis belong to the degenerative musculoskeletal diseases which, as the most common joint disease group, cause severe pain and restricted mobility for the concerned and significant financial burden for society. The clinical picture becomes increasingly frequent with age, causing complaints from third to quarter of the age group above 65.
Primarily, the disease affects the weight-bearing joints of lower extremities, also affecting the knees the hips and the spine.
The disease is degenerative in nature, but secondary inflammatory processes can also occur as a complication, in which case the pain is significantly increased.
The initial symptom of arthrosis is pain, which is occasional at first but later becomes permanent. Pain increases with movement and exertion, decreases at rest, but persists for hours after increased physical activity.

Therapeutic treatment of Bechterew syndrome (Spondylitis ankylopoetica)

Bechterew syndrome is a hereditary inflammatory spinal disease leading to increasingly severe mobility restriction and gradual calcification of the joints and ligaments between the spinal vertebrae. In advanced stages, the complete spinal column becomes ossificated. Our medicinal water and therapeutic mud supplemented with exercise and massagefacilitates the dissolution of the reduced spinal columnmobility.

Medical cures for treating joint inflammations (RA, SNSA, gout)

The most common autoimmune inflammation of multiple joints is rheumatoid arthritis, occurring to 1% of the adult population, three times moreconcerning women. It includes chronic joint inflammation, pain and restricted mobility, causing significant deformities and movement constriction in the long run.
Among metabolic diseases, the best-known clinical picture causing joint inflammation is gout, caused by precipitated uric acid crystals in the joints. 1.6% of the population is affected and it is seven times more common in men. Chronic gout may lead to permanent joint deformities, causing damage to other organs too (kidneys, arteriosclerosis).
The heterogenic disease group called serogenetive spondylarthropathy commonly causes joint inflammation. Joint inflammations associated with certain bowel (Crohn, colitis ulcerosa) or skin diseases (psoriasis) or those appearing after certain infections (reactive arthritis) belong to this category. The most common member of the disease group is the Bechterew-disease (SPA), being the chronic inflammation of spinal joints.
In every disease group, the application of modern medical treatments (biological treatment) is very important, supplemented with balneotherapy.

Medical cures for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis (osteoporosis)

Osteoporosis is the systemic, progressive metabolic disease of the skeletal system, characterized by decrease in bone mass and increased risk of bone fracture, due to the weakening of the bone structure. This affects approx. 10% of the population, but after the age of 50, this proportion is 30%. Fractures resulting from the disease (hip, vertebra, forearm) have serious effects regarding mobility function and life quality.e.
Osteoporosis can be an associated symptom of numerous diseases, e.g. endocrine disorders, malabsorption, renal diseases, diabetes, prolonged steroid treatment.
Nowadays, the market offers numerous medications with bone-building effect, forming the base of therapy with appropriate calcium and vitamin-D supplementation. The prevention of fracture and falling is very important, by maintaining appropriate muscular force and using therapeutic equipment.

Therapeutic treatment of circulatory disorders (arteriosclerosis)

Heart and vascular diseases have been leading the statistics concerning diseases and death causes in developed countries for decades. Arteriosclerosis is the sum of disease processes that cause the thickening of vessel walls and loss of their elasticity, thus the circulation in the limbs deteriorates. Increasing with age, its occurrence is more frequent and certain risk factors (smoking, hypertonia, elevated lipid levels) may exacerbate it.
Long term internal medical disorders are often accompanied by vessel complications; the best-known scenario (pain, sensory loss, wounds, eye and kidney disorders) is diabetes. As for autoimmune diseases (SLE, scleroderma), the rapid discoloration of the limbs may also be present (Raynaud syndrome).

Therapeutic treatment of gynecological diseases (sterile II chr.adnexitis)

It is estimated that every 7th couple have trouble conceiving worldwide, independent from the development level of the country. In 30-40% of the cases, the female or the male is the cause of childlessness, in 20-25% of the cases, both parties. There may be genetic or anatomical reasons, but most commonly hormonal and metabolic disorders (diabetes, thyroid or adrenal gland problems) are in the background, which may be aggravated by environmental factors (toxins, adhesives, organic solvents) and psychological problems.
Acute pelvic inflammation occurs recurrently in some cases, despite antibiotic therapy which significantly increases the risk of infertility. The main cause of inflammation used to be chlamydia and gonorrhea infection, which are now present in one-third of the cases and a myriad of other bacterial pathogens have also appeared that lead to chronic disease due to pharmaceutical therapy often performed for an inadequate period.

Bathing cure to prevent diseases caused by chronic stress (stress prevention)

In today’s performance-oriented world more and more people are exposed to stress regularly, the persistence of which does not only cause psychological but also organic discrepancies. Young, middle-aged men are the most vulnerable. Currently one and a half times more men die aged 35-40 and twice as many man aged 40-50 than in the 70s and 80s.
As a result of chronic stress a variety of symptoms develop, starting with changes in mood (fatigue, irritability) often accompanied by sleep disturbances. Most frequently cardiovascular problemsoccur (increased blood pressure and heart rate) due to the general deterioration of the vascular system metabolic dysfunctions may develop; the blood sugar and blood fat levels increase. Generalized atherosclerosis is the main risk factor of stroke. The occurrence of diabetes types I and II is more frequent, as well as of gastrointestinal and digestive problems due to the rapid, irregular mealtimes. Due to the sedentary lifestyle waist-, back pain, muscle ache, and decreased physical capacity also accompany the internal medical clinical picture.

Cure with individual physiotherapy

By degenerative diseases of the spine and joints we mean age-related, abrasive lesions of the various structures: intervertebral discs, vertebral bodies, ligaments, articular cartilage surfaces. These degenerative changes increase with age and can often only be treated by implantation of a prosthesis.Degenerative diseases are based on cartilage degeneration. Osteoporosis is now a widespread disease and significantly increases the incidence of fractures associated with falls.
Physiotherapy is the basis of treatment for spinal and joint pain and post-operative care. This specialised movement therapy aims to restore function to a specific part of the body or joint, but works on the whole body. Improves coordination, helps breathing and circulation, strengthens muscles.
Balneotherapy and physiotherapy play an important role in the management of chronic pain. Many studies have shown the effectiveness of these treatments in reducing pain, improving mobility and quality of life. In addition to physical complaints in elderly patients, it is also good for mental health problems. The pleasant sensation of warm thermal water significantly increases the effectiveness of the treatment, as the muscles relax and circulation improves.
