Thermal Water and balneotherapy

Thermal water and balneotherapy


The waters of the Abano and Montegrotto basin fall into the category of deep underground waters, unique because of the long distances they travel.

The waters derive from the foothills of the Alps, passing through calcareous rock and into the subsoil at a depth of approximately 2000-3000 meters.

They are held at high temperatures and under strong pressures over the approximately 80 kilometer route that takes an average of 25/30 years.

During this time they take on mineral salts and finally reach the Euganean Spas where they spring forth at a temperature of 87°C.


Balneotherapy: wellbeing experience.

Balneotherapy involves submerging the body in a tank containing hot, ozone-enriched thermal water.

Water is an extraordinary element because it facilitates all activities of the body joints: movements are looser, the muscles relax, pain decreases..

Balneotherapy is performed in individual tubs using sodiobromidiodic thermal waters at a temperature of 36-38°C.

Treatments involve 15 minute cycles for a total of 12 baths (1 a day) and nearly always they follow the fangotherapy.


Thanks to the pressure exerted by the water, thermal baths are ideal for:

  • joints
  • treatment of pain
  • muscular atrophy
  • rehabilitation after traumas
  • fractures and surgery
  • to cure chronic inflammatory processes
  • to cure many types of dermatosis
