Health

When time becomes health

Spend a relaxing time, escape from the daily hustle and bustle or take a health bath. These are good enough reasons for leaving the city behind and spending a few days in one of the centres of Health and Beauty in the Region of Murcia. If we add to this a climate with temperatures near to 18ºC on average, and nearly 2,800 hours of sun a year, we can understand how these places have become resorts for relaxing at any time of the year.

Our spas. The spas in the Region of Murcia offer the visitor modern installations, hotels which are perfectly equipped for any needs, open air swimming pools with thermal waters, sports facilities and exclusive medical assistance. Backed up by a lengthy experience in the treatment of rheumatic and dermatological problems, they can also count on services specifically designed for physiotherapy and injury rehabilitation. Their mineral-medicinal waters, rich in sulphur, chlorine, sodium and calcium flow out of underground springs and produce beneficial results in the treatment of many ailments. These centres also have at their disposal thermal or peloid mud cures which are produced from the mixing of the organic material from the thermal waters with clayey soils. They cause an increase in local vascularisation and also have analgesic, anti-inflammatory and calming effects.

Our Centres of Thalassotherapy. Thalassotherapy is the treatment of illnesses by means of sea water. In the Mar Menor, the waters have high levels of salt and are rich in magnesium, calcium, sodium, bromide, iodine, and fluoride. This makes them ideal for the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, states of both physical and mental exhaustion, and many, many more. In order to use it, all impurities are removed from the water which is then applied without ever surpassing 40ºC in temperature. The Centres of Thalassotherapy in the Region of Murcia offer technically advanced treatment with these waters by means of ozone bubbles and powdered sea-weeds, pressurised jets of water in heated swimming-pools, and hydromassage bathtubs, all under specialised medical control. Apart from this you can also try the therapeutic treatment which is based on the use of curative mud from the Mar Menor. These sediments contain a high percentage of calcium, magnesium, potassium, fluoride, chlorides and sulphates. Their use is highly recommended for many types of skin complaints, and their powers of heat conductivity also make them recommendable in cases of rheumatism, arthritis, gout and physiotherapy after bone fractures.
