Heat / cold therapy

Paraffin-ozokerite 
This is a surface heat procedure, used as local wrap for curing chronic joint and muscular diseases, occasionally also as post-traumatic cure or just for softening muscles before massage or physiotherapy. The procedure has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, it improves blood circulation in the skin and in the hypodermic tissues, reflectively expanding subcutaneous capillaries located deeper in muscles and joints. This improves blood circulation, relieves pain and decreases muscle tension. Adding ozocerite i.e. natural mountain wax to paraffin keeps the mixture warm for longer. The essential oils contained in ozocerite have curative effect. Depending on the doctor’s prescription, the temperature of paraffin and ozocerite mixture used for therapy is kept at the following temperature ranges: 39-40°C, 40-42°C or 42-44°C.

Paraffin mask for hands & feet 
This warming skin treatment improves blood circulation and local metabolism. Paraffin mask in this form decreases pain in finger and toe joints and in small acropodium and sole muscles and tendons. The procedure is good for curing the cracked skin on fingers or soles which often appear in older age.

Water therapy

Herbal baths, bubble baths, pressure massage in bath
Water therapy improves blood circulation and muscular tonicity and decreases excess tension. Suitable for curing rheumatism, arthritis, sleep and metabolism disorders, back pains, kidney disorders, migraine and stress, as well as problems with neural and cardiovascular circulation systems. Depending on the nature of the procedure (temperature of water, strength of the air or water jet in the bath, substances added to the water: essential oils, mineral salts), effect of the water is either inhibitory or stimulating, relaxing or invigorating.
We use warm freshwater baths (temperature at 36-38°C) to which appropriate herbal extracts are added. While selecting the procedure, different effects of herbs, making the procedure even more pleasant and effective, are taken into account. The procedure lasts 10 – 15 min.

Pressure massage bath for hands and feet – this therapy improves blood circulation and muscular tone while decreasing tension. This procedure is also suitable in cases where a regular bath would otherwise be inadvisable. These freshwater baths also contain natural herbal extracts, sea salt or peppermint-magnesium additives.

Sole massage
Acupressure or sole massage is a massage that uses fingers to exert pressure on bioactive points on the sole, which nowadays, in the era of shuffling slippers, have become neglected. A 15-minute massage is relaxing and pleasant and has an effect on the whole organism – it helps to relieve stress, cures chronic diseases, improves blood pressure, stimulates metabolism, relieves pain and relaxes the body.

Stone massage
Stone massage is a healing method based on oriental teaching for achieving balance between mind and body. The procedure combines massaging energy centres or chackras with stones and hands and influencing them with semi-precious stones.  Warm lava stones, heated in advance, are placed on the body. When in contact with skin, they start passing heat and energy from sun, thus removing muscle tension, expanding blood vessels, regulating digestion, metabolism and hormonal systems. The heat also opens energy channels and releases energy blocks, as a result of which the tonicity of the whole organism increases and energies become balanced. Lava stone massage is a deeply relaxing procedure. Feelings of harmony and wellbeing are released inside the patient, who starts feeling calmer and breathe deeper, skin tonicity and elasticity are improved and tiredness and stress collected in body disappear. Additionally, tension and worries are also relieved.

Honey massage

In this procedure honey is used as an adhesive substance with the help of which it is possible to remove from the organism “contaminated” energy. By being imbibed through the skin honey passes on its good curative powers. As an end result, physical form and metabolism improves and energy channels become cleansed. Honey massage enhances digestion and absorption of nutrients and also trims the skin. Honey massage is very suitable for persons suffering from pack pain, arthritis, colds, metabolism disorders and cellulite.

Each of the stretching exercises stimulates two organs. The therapy is particularly effective, because it connects the stretching exercises with self-massage, acupressure, breathing and concentrating. Suitable for all.

Nordic Walking
Walking with sticks trains shoulder, arm and breast muscles, helps to release neck and shoulder pain, is good for joint diseases and for persons who spend most of their time sitting, as it employs degenerated muscle groups.

Light theraphy
Light therapy uses a special lamp that mimics daylight (it’s 15 times brighter than regular room lightning). A person should sit about 30 minutes in the lit room and he orshe will start to feel better after the first session. The seats are located at least 50 cm away from the lamp, and reading during the session is allowed. Since the therapy works through the retina, the person should look toward the light about once a minute but not directly into the light.
Light therapy provides relief for many problems, for example, for people who have trouble sleeping or are just tired. It also reduces the signs of ageing on the skin because the influence of a light beam increases collagen production.
Light therapy is not dangerous but people with skin sensative to sunlight and those who have eye problems should be cautious. They should first consult their doctor about the therapy.
Light therapy affects the body and regulates the production of hormone serotonin, which promotes a sense of well-being. Light therapy also inhibits a higher than normal production of the sleep hormone melatonin during the day and makes one feel more positive.

Blood Pressure Holter Monitor

24 h blood pressure measurement. For the measurement of blood pressure a cuff is attached to the arm of the patient and a measuring device with an automatic system that measures the blood pressure night and day at certain intervals is attached to a lap belt. The frequency of measurement is defined by a program that the doctor has chosen. In order to achieve the best result, it is important to mark down your activities with their time in the notebook given to you by your doctor The result is shown graphically and numerically. We can see the time when the blood pressure was higher and how much it exceeded the normal values and for how long the blood pressure remained high. At the end of the test the stored information is transferred to a computer and the results are printed along with thedoctor’s summary.

The indications for which we recommend the monitoring:

  • Subjectively perceived rhythm disturbances
  • Identification of the nature and frequency of an arrhythmia that is previously registered in ECG
  • Arrhythmias after a heart attack
  • Determination of the efficiency of antiarrhythmic treatment
  • Unclear weakness or unconsciousness

The patient is not suitable for monitoring, if:

  • The heart rate is lower than 40 bpm (beats per minute)
  • There are atrial or ventricular arrhythmias
  • The pulse is too weak
  • The hand is too thick or thin
  • Inability to stand still during the measurement

  Not recommended for use:

  • In children and infants
  • In pregnant women
  • Patients who easily bruise, etc., including diabetics
