Sulphide baths


Sulphide baths

Only in Raspberry Hotels can you bathe in the world’s most powerful healing, sulphurous water! This is proven by erythema on the skin during bathing and immediately after it.

Healing sulphurous water from the “Raspberry” source.

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.

Spring location % mineralization sulphur compounds per 1L
Swoszowice 2,64% 70,04 mg H2S/1L
Krzeszowice 0,28% 6,00 mg H2S/1L
Horyniec 0,75% 23,00 mg H2S/1L
Busko-Zdrój 1,40% 50,00 mg H2S/1L
Solec-Zdrój „Malina” 3,10% 788,2 mg H2S/1L

Sulphur and the human body

Sulphur, which is a non-metallic chemical element, is found in all cells of the human body, especially as an important component of the protein structure. An adult person’s body contains about 100 g of sulphur. Sulphur is one of the macronutrients necessary for life and occupies a leading position on the list of mineral macronutrients needed by the human body.

Note that sulphur deficiency can be very harmful to the health

The easiest way to recognize it is by the following symptoms: hair become brittle and fall out, the skin loses its firmness and becomes pale, psoriasis and brittle nails. However, sulphur deficiency also affects our emotional states. When this element is lacking in the body there may be feelings of anxiety, fatigue, problems with vision and joint discomfort.

Sulphur can be very easily and effectively delivered to the body through baths

Sulphur can be supplemented by consuming food products, and most of it contains, among others, meat, giblets, poultry, fish, eggs, milk and dairy products, horseradish, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress.It is also found in: asparagus, avocado, broccoli, celeriac, black and red currants, pumpkin, corn, figs, peas, beans, lettuce, marjoram, onion, oats, parsnip, pears, potatoes, radishes, turnips, soy and tomatoes.

Treatment with sulphide healing waters is widely known and has been used in spas for centuries. Balneology applies, among others in the treatment of rheumatic diseases and post-traumatic motor organs, gastrointestinal and respiratory tract, metabolism, industrial poisoning and the nervous system.

Sulphide baths

We use classic balneological treatments. The leading ones are the unique sulphide baths in water with the highest concentration of sulphur compounds that can be found in spas in Poland and beyond.

The strength of treatment effects depends on the concentration of active compounds in the bathing water and the size of the surface of absorption, i.e. the surface of the body. It is assumed that 10% of the sulphur contained in the sulphurous hydrogen sulphide water is absorbed. The higher the concentration of the solution, the greater its absorbability. Use in the treatment of springs of medicinal waters containing high concentrations of active sulphur compounds may provide better spa treatment effects. Like any stimulus treatment, it requires a series of treatments, and the therapeutic effects last about a year after the end of treatment. The sulphide water has a multidirectional effect. It works locally and generally.

Local effect:

The effect of bathing on the body starts from the moment the skin comes into contact with the sulphide water through gentle exfoliation of the epidermis and then stimulation of renewal processes. This activity is supported by the bactericidal and fungicidal properties of sulphide water. The local effect also involves the stimulation of microcirculation, better blood circulation and metabolism of the skin, expressed by vasomotor reaction – redness, lasting up to about 2 hours.

General effects:

After penetration through the skin layers, hydrogen sulphide forms polysulphides, a physiological component of the connective tissue and a substrate for the synthesis of chondroitin-sulphuric acid (a component of articular cartilage) and amino acids (cystine and methionine). Sulphide baths have an anti-inflammatory effect by participating in the body’s antioxidant defence processes. The effect is reduced pain and oedema as well as improved joint mobility. Sulphide baths also positively influence metabolism and lower cholesterol and triglycerides, uric acid and glucose.

The strongest sulphide water in the world is used to treat, among others, the following diseases:

  • joint and spine degeneration
  • discopathy
  • sciatica
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • post-traumatic and overloading organs of the musculoskeletal system
  • chronic skin diseases: psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis
  • peripheral arterial circulation disorders
  • diabetes
  • gout
  • atherosclerosis
  • diseases of a neurological origin: neuralgia, neuropathy, radiculopathy, paresis

Sulphide water with a concentration of ca. 150 mg of sulphur compounds per litre is used for the treatments. Thanks to modern, efficient mechanical ventilation, the concentration of hydrogen sulphide in the treatment room does not exceed 4-6 mg H2S in 1 m3 of air, and is also constantly monitored with sensors. Therefore, during the treatment, we ensure the complete safety and comfort of our guests.

Contraindications for sulphide baths:

  • significant cardiac failure
  • recognized cardiac arrhythmia
  • conditions following myocardial infarction
  • unstable coronary heart disease
  • unstable arterial hypertension
  • conditions following cancer
  • chronic liver and pancreas inflammation
  • recurrent phlebitis
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding

If erythema occurs on your body after bathing, it is a natural testimony that the water has a high sulphur concentration. This happens as a result of the penetration of active compounds through the skin. During the bath, capillaries previously unused are now widened and open, resulting in erythema of the regions in contact with the water.

In other spa towns, achieving similar therapeutic effects resulting in the appearance of vascular reaction (erythema) is impossible due to much lower concentrations of active sulphur compounds in the water.
