The Natural Methods


The Natural Methods Centre combines the principles of Eastern and Western medicine to restore the mind-body harmony on which your overall wellbeing depends.
To this end, we use various holistic and natural treatments, some applied with the help of medicinal herbs, essential oils, fine clay, hay, spring water and mud from Terme di Riolo.
We also offer programmes that include moderate physical activity and dedicated nutritional regimes, essential to purify and revitalise the body.
Before proceeding, the team of doctors and spa operators will analyse your physical and mental health in order to create a personalised course of treatment and obtain the desired results.

Intestinal health

Our gut is home to a series of microorganisms called the microbiota. Some are beneficial, others are harmful.

When an imbalance arises between these, intestinal function is compromised, leading in time to the development of disease.

Colon hydrotherapy and rectal douching help you take care of your intestinal health.

They restore correct and regular functioning, to the benefit of the entire body.

Colon hydrotherapy

This consists of painless cleansing with purified Breta thermal water. Its pH of 8 helps combat body acidity and detoxify the liver.
It also contains sulphur, a trace element that facilitates the cleansing of vital organs. The treatment is useful for purifying and stimulating both the colon and the small intestine. It acts on constipation and abdominal swelling, in cases where no other pathologies are present. It is also useful for diverticulosis, in the absence of acute inflammation. Following treatment, we recommend taking fermented milk products to restore the bacterial flora, and detoxifying herbal teas created by our specialists, which you can find in the herbalist department at our spa centre.
Colon hydrotherapy can also be combined with hydropinic treatment with Breta water, to complete the purifying action.

Rectal douche

Ideal to combat constipation. Its use must be carefully considered in the event of specific clinical problems. The treatment can be accessed through an agreement with the National Health Service.
