Besides the features mentioned above, the bath with a view located on a raised floor of the refurbished building awaits the guests in marvellous surroundings. The roof can be opened up so the guests can enjoy the sunshine while in the effervescent or the jakuzzi ponds.
Sauna, steam room
Through dilating the veins, the circulation is improved in the muscles and the skin. As a result of increased sweating, waste materials are excreted, which strengthens the immune system. A Finnish-type sauna can be found in both the open-air section and within the building; it is recommended for our healthy, adult visitors, who will want to dip in the pool of cold water, too.
Effervescent bath, jakuzzi
These pools filled with water of 32–330C may be a real treat for all age groups. The water jets spouting all over the pool massage every part of the body. At the edge of the effervescent bath, the two water jets of high intensity serve as neck showers: the forceful massage of the upper parts cause the muscles to relax and the neck and shoulder pains to abate. The experience is further enhanced by four bubbly beds. The intensive flow of water and air together make for an unforgettable experience.
Cellulite (fat burning) massage
Cellulite massage is performed in order to ease and stop the symptoms of cellulite. Cellulite - which slows down blood supply and circulation in the lymphatic system - is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests topographically as skin dimpling and nodularity, often on the pelvic region, lower limbs and abdomen. The massage improves blood and lymphatic circulation and the oxygen supply and freshness of the tissue. It also helps the lymph to reach the bloodstream through the lymph nodes and eventually leave the system. This effect is further assisted by a special cream used during the massage. The desired effect can be achieved with regular massage and a reconsidered diet and lifestyle.
Cellulite is usually caused by an insufficient lymphatic system, but hereditary factors, the lack of physical activity, incorrect diet, consuming the wrong quality and quantity of beverages, stress or contraceptives have also been known to further the condition.
The lymphatic system’s task is to remove and transport the waste from the cells and the intercellular space. If its operation is improper, waste piles up and hampers the cells’ metabolism.
Natural nails need not only looking after but also nutrition in order to secure the right way of growth and prevent cracking and fracturing.
Japanese manicure is a method of nail treatment which was reserved for the Japanese upper class in the past but has been available in Hungary since 2003.
Japanese manicure brings out the natural beauty and shine of the nails, while at the same time enhances its healthy growth. With the help of the treatment our nails provide brilliant comfort during our everyday life. Beeswax is used to make the nails stronger and to provide durable shine (it does not wear off since the substance is embedded to the nail plates), while their colour is set to be more and more vivid with every treatment. The substances are completely free of chemical materials!
In developed countries several women has problems with their shape and skin. This is caused mainly by the lack of physical activity, incorrect diet and overeating. Regular inactive occupation such as standing or sitting in one place for hours can cause the swelling of the legs and the deformation of the body, which can eventually lead to depression or unhealthiness.
Negative effects which thus affect our lives include organ diseases, varicose veins, edema and cellulite, which all stem from inefficient lymphatic circulation. However, with the help of modern technology there is a new method which performs the massage through a device. We call this method wave massage or lymph massage. During the treatment compression covers are attached to the body, which are connected to the machine with air tubes. The machine pumps air to the covers, creating light, rhythmic pressure waves which flow through the body from the sole through the ankle, thigh and buttocks up to the hip. The waves follow each other in a periodic, rhythmic fashion. The number of waves per minute and the level of pressure are adjustable.
Even after the first, roughly 20 minute treatment we realize with surprise that our legs feel lighter. A sense of release can be perceived and it feels like our shoes became a size too big. As a result of the treatment the volume of the thigh, buttocks and hip decreases, the skin becomes more beautiful, cellulite starts to disappear and lymphic circulation returns to ideal.
Paraffin wax treatment
Paraffin wax possesses extraordinary heat storing characteristics, opens the pores, improves blood circulation, strengthens the connective tissues and therefore allows the absorption of moisturizing products. As a result of the treatment dry, rough and cracked skin becomes soft, smooth and flexible. It has beneficial effects to the upper as well as the lower limbs. The paraffin wax therapy of the hand include the disinfection, peeling and vitamin-rich cream treatment of the skin of the hands.
The protection of the hands is even more important during the cold winter days. One of the most efficient solutions at times like that is regular paraffin wax treatment. The warm, covered surface enhances the deeper absorption of medicinal lotions and the inner improvement of the skin. In addition to its healing and moisturizing effects it prevents the visible signs of ageing from appearing on the hand. Paraffin wax has been used in medicine to physiotherapy purposes for years. It is also used for treating the hand, the foot and the face in cosmetics.
The paraffin wax treatment has to be used regularly, depending on the dryness of the skin of the hand. Usually during the first two weeks two sessions, then for another two weeks one session, and later every two weeks one session is recommended to reach the desired condition.
