Answers to questions

1. I’m too busy with work, is it worth it to take just one week of spa treatment?
The optimum length of a comprehensive Carlsbad spa treatment with proven effects is three weeks, and four weeks gives the effects greater longevity.
It is possible to shorten treatment to one week, if there is no alternative. You are sure to achieve deep relaxation and you to feel well.
In case of weekly treatment, it is recommended to attend several times a year for one week (3x-4x) so the treatment takes effect.
We recommend at least a 14-day course of treatment without interruption. In this time you will feel the results in your body and your test results will improve.
2. Do I need any medical recommendation to undergo spa treatment?
Medical referrals or diagnostic records are not a condition for admission to the spa treatment.
However, if you have these documents, it would be a welcome help to create a customized plan for your treatment.
It is important to have a supply of your own medications for a whole spa stay.

4. How long will the effects of the spa treatment last?
We can say that the effects of the spa treatments are directly proportional to the length of stay.
If you undergo treatment for 3 weeks without interruption, the positive effects persist for a period of 7 months to 1 year.
After that it is advisable to repeat the treatment.
In most cases the patient can feel that it is time to repeat the treatment, since a cleansed body is not a sustainable state.
5. How do I properly use mineral water during the drinking cure?
During the initial examination the physician determines the type of mineral water and drinking routine of specific springs. The drinking cure is prescribed 3-4 times daily for 20 to 40 minutes before meals, on average 250-400 ml.

  1. Mineral water is drunk in small sips, best during a slow walk (siting for a long time is not recommended).
  2. Hold sips of mineral water inside your mouth, as healing effects already begin through the oral mucosa.
  3. Drink the cup of 250 ml over a 3 to 10 minutes period (so the water does not cool down and maintains the right temperature and quantity of gaseous carbon dioxide).
  4. It is recommended to take a break of approximately 5 to 10 minutes between individual cups.
6. Is a spa diet necessary?
You have a choice to sign up for full board (breakfast + lunch + dinner) or half-board (breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner).
