European Quartet One Melody

Water and air – these are two elements essential to life, with boundless possibilities for exerting a positive impact on our health. In Poland we make the most of these natural attributes. There is an abundance of natural mineral water spring in Poland, including thermal waters, whose role as a medicinal remedy cannot be overestimated.

As a result, Poland’s health resorts, regeneration centres, and health and beauty clinics widely use hydrotherapy treatments. Indeed drinking the mineral waters is one of the oldest therapies on offer. Systematic drinking of the water can help to treat the digestive system by supplementing any shortages of macro and microelements.
Types of hydrotherapy that guarantee excellent results include:
• Algae therapy
• Aqua
• Aqua-gym
Balneotherapy (bathing treatments), alongside peloidotherapy (treatments using medicinal mud) and climate therapy are the three main therapy methods used at Polish health resorts. These methods use mud, seawater and gases, with treatments including baths in carbonic acid, carbonic acid gas in carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, and even baths in an oxygen-ozone mixture.
