Thermal Centers

Turkey is one of the rare countries having underground healing water sources in addition to its beauties. The health resorts and hot springs are established near healing water sources. Their healing traits have been known for thousands of years. Hot springs gushing from underground used for the treatment of various diseases is called şifalı su (healing water). These healing waters are used either as bath or içme (hot spring) depending on their temperature. The spring where they come out to earth are called kaynarca (thermal spring). The springs used for bathing and on open air are called Ilıca and mostly there are artificial lakes where the water is collected. The general opinion of scientific world is that thermal springs are effective, however they will be more useful if the physical and chemical characteristics are known better, for every healing water has different chemical and heat characteristics. May and September are the most suitable months for those health resorts. However we recommend you not to attend one before consulting your doctor.

Important points on spa treatment:

You should not chill your body and wear thick socks during the treatment.
Bath should be taken one hour after a light breakfast or two hours before dinner.
Resting is essential after the bath.
The meals should be light and will mostly be composed of vegetables and fruits.
It is disadvantageous to take hot baths just after meals and only two baths are recommended in a day.
The duration of the first bath should not exceed 10 minutes.
Don't forget too hot spring does not mean a very well spa.
The excellent bath temperature should be 36-38 degrees C.
