Every vacationer must have a steam in the Carpathian baths. They are filled with mineral or spring water, which is heated on a bonfire to 35-40 degrees Celsius. This procedure effectively helps with various diseases. Several guests are allowed to pass through it at the same time. Having absorbed the healing power of the liquid, they intensify its effect by immersing themselves in ice water. Such a striking contrast quickly activates blood circulation and helps to remove toxins from the body. As a result, a person sleeps better, feels more energetic, and his mood improves. Many note that their symptoms of musculoskeletal and neurological diseases have weakened, rheumatic attacks have become less frequent, and osteochondrosis has passed. According to tourists, the procedure also strengthens the immune system and improves the condition of the skin.
