Balneo Physiotherapy – Apollo Wellness Club

Balneo Physiotherapy – Apollo Wellness Club

A relaxation oasis in the heart of Transylvania!

Salt Baths balneo resort in Mureş county is renowned for the highest concentration of minerals and it offers its patients a wide range of procedures performed with high end equipment.

The exceptional mineralization, which is due to the concentration (135,586 mg/l) and its content (iodine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, nitrates), confer true therapeutic virtues to these waters. The waters have the highest iodine content in Transylvania and iodine is the ion of human longevity. The beneficial effects are widened by the existence of therapeutic mineral mud that has a 50-70% mineral charge.

The mineral waters from the Salt Baths balneo resort act upon the body through:

  • The thermal factor: The temperature of the sodium chloride water from Sângeorgiu de Mureş Baths, both in the tub and in the pool, ranges between 34-36ºC, while in the swimming pools it ranges between 24-31ºC.

The salt water temperature acts upon the body’s thermal equilibrium.

  • The chemical factor: The waters, through the direct action of the mineral salts upon the integument, modify the mineral equilibrium of the skin while the sodium chloride crystals excite the peripheral receptors triggering some neurovegetative reactions with trophic effects, the ph. of the skin is changed and the absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus ions is facilitated.

In the Apollo Balneo balneo-physiotherapy facility our clients benefit from qualified personnel and high-end equipment for the treatment of various diseases of the osteoarticular, nervous, cardiovascular and endocrine systems, genital, digestive, respiratory and renal urinary systems, as well as dermatological, otorhinolaryngologic, neuropsychiatric rheumatic conditions, etc.

Doctor Simona Szasz – Primary Physician in Recovery, physical medicine and balneology, is ready to provide the highest quality of care to our patients with an emphasis on disease prevention and health management.
