Treatment and the tradition

Guests arrive at Karlovy Vary to have, to see and to try the traditional treatment, which is based on using natural medicinal sources - mineral springs, peat, natural gas CO2 and very good local climatic conditions.

At Spa Hotel Schlosspark you will find:

  • Combination of traditional treatment and modern procedures.
  • Administration of special  treatments (baths, dry carbon-dioxide gas bath and carbon-dioxide gas application), completely unique in the world.
  • Individual approach to the every spa guests, professional team specialists, who are at the guests' disposal during the whole length of their stay.

To make the treatment maximally effective, it must take at least 14 days, or, on a physician's recommendation, even longer. Apart from the treatment programmes, we also offer short-term relaxation and freely purchasable procedures, which can regenerate the whole body and mind even during a short stay.

The curative plan is the most important parameter of the treatment quality, it should always contain an entry and exit examination by a specialist, continuous examinations are also common. Based on the entry examination and the information of  the patient  brings the physician determines a specific curative plan, which includes drinking cure pursuant to physician's recommendation, entry, checkup, and leaving physician examination, laboratory examination as recommended by the physician, possibility of dietary food, 15 procedures in a week pursuant to physician´s recommendation and free entry to the pool and fitness.

Positive effects on a body are certainly not limited to the time you actually spend in spas. The result of spa care is not only a global "tuning" of your body, but also the feeling of relief and freshness. These effects positively and on a long-term basis intervene in the course of a disease or for prevention; this change usually persists for 6 months in the case of a chronic illness. In general, the treatment is an ideal prevention of health problems, but also works  like the great therapy and plays the major part in the recovery of the human body. The spa care after operations ensures suitable and appropriate rehabilitation, but we recommend you to consult  the suitability and effect of the certain treatment with your doctor prior to booking your stay  at our hotel.

Mineral springs

Thirteen mineral springs with a temperature of 30 °C to 72 °C are used by the spa facilities in Karlovy Vary, as for chemistry, the hot spring water belongs to the bicarbonate-chloride-sulfate-sodium water group, i.e. thermal water. Individual springs have practically the same mineral content, but they differ only  in the temperature and amount of carbon dioxide. The creation, formation, and release of the hot spring water and gas towards the surface represent very complex and long-term natural processes. The mineral water´s composition is unique worldwide, along with its beneficial effects upon the human body. It is used both for exterior balneotherapy (baths, etc.) and for drinking programs. In addition to mineral water and gas, the spa therapy also makes use of peloids (mud, fen, peat).

The drinking cure is the most important part of Karlovy Vary  treatment. The thermal water should be drunk in sips, preferably while taking a walk – a cup with content of 200 ml you should drink during 3 – 10 minutes, in between individual cups is recommended a break of 5 – 10 minutes. There are 47 elements necessary for the body in the Karlovy Vary springs  and it has been proven that it has beneficial effects for the entire digestive tract, metabolism, periodontal disease, the overall improvement of health condition and the improvement of imunity towards genetic disposition and civilization diseases.
