Covasna - The resort of 1000 health spring®

Covasna - Balneary treatments all year round

Covasna spa has flourished as a health resort since 1880's.
In 1881 the fundamental regulation of the spa's activity was elaborated when the "Devil Swamp Bath Institute" was opened for the public. The mineral water from Covasna won gold medal at the Trieste mineral water world-exhibition in 1882.
The richness of the mineral (moffete gas, mineral waters) and natural resources (sub alpine climate, strongly ozoned air, rich in negative ions) offers a maximal efficiency treatment, unique in Europe.

Cardiovascular Cures

The therapy programs are monitorised by qualified medical personnel and include 3 or more of the following procedures: warm bath in natural mineral water, moffetes (therapy with natural dry carbon gas), electro-physiotherapy (ultrasounds, ultra waves, diadinamics, magnetodiaflux, galvanic bath), hydro-termotherapy (massage shower, underwater massage, paraffin packing, jacuzzi), inhalations and aerosols, dry massage, rehabilitation gym.

The effective recommended period for the treatment session is 18 days.
Doctors prescribe the procedures according to individual pacients' affections, based on the results of regular analysis (blood, EKG, lung-Röentgen, urine).
On the first day the pacients have a medical examination and another one after 3 days or whenever is necessary.
GEROVITAL cure is also available, by request.

Covasna - Natural Cure Factors

Covasna is one of richest resorts in natural mineral waters in our country with a great variety of its physical-chemical compositions.
The mineral waters here are carbonaceous, bicarbonate, chlorosodic, and iodinated and brominates, ferruginous, arsenical or slightly sulfurous, with a total mineralization of 3,2 - 22,4 g/l, very rich in carbonic acid of volcanic origin (2,5 g/l).
Another natural cure factor peculiar to the resort are the mofettes - emanations of natural gases, mainly carbon dioxide, used especially in the treatment of cardiovascular, locomotors, dermatological, metabolically affections or nervous system.
The natural mofettic gas of Covasna, containing 80 - 98% carbon dioxide, has a vasodilating effect, lowering the arterial tension, being thus salutary for the heart and the peripheral circulation.

The mofettes are to be found in the health center of the hotels. The natural moffetes and the mineral waters offer the unicity of the health product and tourists call them "healing labs".
Another important natural cure factor is sparing bio climate, with a less exciting effect on the central and vegetative nervous system as well as on the glands with internal secretions.

The variety of its natural cure factors combined with other medical methods offers the possibility of simultaneous treatment of more affections, which gives the complexity of Covasna.
