The strongest sulphide brine in the world, which we use for treatment at the Medical Center comes from the “Malina” borehole in Solec Zdrój. According to the classification, it is strongly mineralized sodium chloride (brine) sulphide, bromide, iodine, boric water with the highest content of active sulphur compounds in the world.
The potency of balneological treatments depends on the concentration of active sulphur compounds in water. Use in the treatment of springs of medicinal waters containing high concentrations (over 100 mg / 1L) of sulphur compounds ensures the best therapeutic effects in a spa treatment.
Like any stimulus treatment, it requires a series of treatments, and the therapeutic effects last about a year after the end of treatment.
