Thermal Baths

Salso-iodine and Breta waters are used for balneotherapy, a thermal treatment method that can prevent and treat various chronic diseases by alleviating their symptoms.
Bathing in the Terme di Riolo pool consists of the complete immersion of the body in thermal water at a temperature of between 34 and 37°C depending on medical advice, for a period of 15-20 minutes, followed by a reasonable period of rest on a bed.
The temperature, the hydrostatic effect and the therapeutic properties of the water contribute to the beneficial effects of the therapy: anti-inflammatory action and relief of muscle contractures and tension, vasodilation and epidermal cell renewal.
Balneotherapy is useful for disorders of the musculoskeletal system such as osteoarthritis, extra-articular rheumatism, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, cervicalgia and lower back pain.

Hydromassage is particularly effective in circulatory problems of the lower limbs, from functional disorders to chronic phlebopathies and edematous alterations of the subcutaneous tissue, and cellulite. Hydromassage improves microcirculation and facilitates venous return, with a consequent decrease in heaviness and improved tone in the legs.
As an alternative to the hydromassage bath, you can choose the vascular pathway adjoining the thermal pool. The vascular pathway at Terme di Riolo consists of two channels of salso-iodine water at different temperatures, differing by approximately 10°C, hydromassage jets and an uneven floor. Walking in the channel activates the plantar venous pump and gives the feet a real vascular workout.

Vaginal irrigation

Salso-iodine and Breta are also the thermal waters used to carry out vaginal irrigations.
The treatment is provided by health professionals on the prescription of the spa doctor, and is useful in cases of chronic or recurrent inflammation of the genitourinary system, to prevent or treat vaginal dryness, irritation or itching and to combat sterility.
Vaginal irrigation can be combined with thermal baths to enhance its beneficial effects.
