Healing Resources 

Natural healing sources are used for therapeutic procedures. The cold hypotonic acidulous water is used for drinking cures, inhalations and for the preparation of carbonic and mineral baths. Furthermore, peat, mud and natural healing gas, so called Mary gas, are also employed for the procedures, not to mention the benefits of the unique climate of the hills around.
