Who benefits from the Medical Spa?

The Medical Spa is aimed at patients with ailments of the musculoskeletal system.

  • Inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions
  • Abrasion indicators of joints and spine
  • Rheumatism (joint and cartilage)
  • Painful conditions after orthopedic surgery or osteoporosis

The Medical Spa therapy is based on the natural healing resources, healing mud and healing moor. These healing resources have scientifically proven effects on defined diseases.


The aim of the Medical Spa is to improve physical and psychological health. In addition to restoring and strengthening your well-being, a medical spa therapy plays an important role in the prevention of ill-health.

A medical spa strengthens the body's own reactionary and regulatory capabilities, which help the body to maintain a healthy state. The recovery effect and the detachment from the stress of everyday life are two important success factors. The medical spa should be the impetus for life style changes. You can begin to change your normal behaviour outside your usual environment in how you deal with stress, adapting a healthy diet and integrating more physical activity into your everyday life.


After your check-in at the admission desk, you will receive your time of the medical entry examination. Based on the diagnosis, test results and your physical needs, your doctor will develop an individual treatment plan for the duration of your stay.

Each medical spa offers a mixture of active and passive therapies. An example of an active application is group gymnastics while passive applications include healing baths, massages and mud packs. An important factor for a successful therapy are the theoretical training and lectures which we constantly provide here.

Moreover, we educate and advise our patients about a healthy diet to help them make the right choices.
