  • The viscosity of the frictional resistance counteracts the movement of the human body. The muscles are strengthened by training in therapies in the water (swimming fins, WetVest-aqua jogging) and the movement harmonized.

Thermal effects

  • The thermal effects relax the muscles, improve the elasticity of the connective tissue and liquefy the synovial fluid - the latter has on arthritic joints a positive impact.

Chemical effects of the thermal water
The water uptake and release through the skin and ions are exchanged.
