It is easy to feel good when one is healthy.
If you are healthy, wellness is at your fingertips. Just turn a tap on and let hot water massage your body, like in several wellness centres recently set up in many Italian cities. However forget about wellness centres, if you are looking for an effective therapy for your diseases: choose true thermal baths with true thermal treatments, that is what Romans called Salus Per Aquam
A 2000 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN THERMAL TREATMENTS.
True Salus Per Aquam (hence the acronym “SPA”) is based on thermal water. More than 2000 years ago the Romans already knew the healing effects of Euganean Hills’ thermal water and attributed them to Aponus, the god of thermal water and cure. The first evidence of the use of thermal water for therapy in the area dates back to Neolithic, when Venetians, an Illiric people, settled in the Euganean Hills area and started to venerate the god of thermal water. In Roman times, Roman aristocracy used to go to Abano Montegrotto for thermal holidays. The greatest success for the destination was reached in the Augustan Age (27 b.C. – 14 AD), when elegant thermal centres with mosaics and hot, warm and cold pools were built and where massages with scented oils were available. The thermal rituals were also mentioned in literature in Titus Livius’, Pliny the Elder’s and many other authors’ works.
WE ARE THE BIGGEST THERMAL RESORT IN EUROPE: EVERY HOTEL HAS ITS OWN THERMAL CENTRE.
All hotels in the Euganean thermal area have its own thermal spring. And this because the Euganean Hills hydrologic basin is the biggest in Europe and big streams of water flow in the whole area. After drawing water directly from the thermal springs, all hotels have tanks where the mud is soaked with thermal water for 2 months. This process enables the development of the biological components that gives Thermae Abano Montegrotto’s mud its healing properties. Everybody is focusing on one’s wellness… who is looking for a solution to one’s diseases?
In this moment when everyone is talking about wellness who will take care of your desease?
OUR THERMAL MUD IS AS EFFECTIVE AS CORTISONE, BUT IT IS 100% NATURAL AND HAS NO SIDE EFFECTS. ITS PROPERTIES ARE CERTIFIED BY A EUROPEAN PATENT.
Thermae Abano Montegrotto are the biggest thermal centre in Europe with a hundred hotels equipped with thermal spa, but it is also a centre of excellence for thermal mud treatments. Thermal mud is a unique resource containing special components as monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG), that cures cartilage inflammation. Scientific research has proved that MGDG is more effective than no steroidal drugs like indomethacin, and it does not have its side effects. The uniqueness and the properties of thermal mud components, a gift made by Mother Nature to our land, are protected by European patent n°0001355006.
THERMAL MUD IS BETTER THAN CORTISONE. OUR THERMAL BATHS ARE THE BIGGEST LAB IN THE WORLD: THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TREATMENTS ARE CERTIFIED BY RESEARCH.
The Euganean Hills hydrothermal basin can be seen as a huge open air lab where nature creates one of its strongest anti-inflammatory principles: it is the place where mud is enriched by the therapeutic components of thermal water. Over the past 20 years, the research carried out by Pietro d’Abano Thermal Studies Centre in collaboration with CNR and Padua University has proved that Thermae Abano Montegrotto mud benefits cartilage cells by alleviating pain, curing inflammation and stimulating bone remodeling.
