Jachymov

  • View more details

    Jáchymov is a wooded spa town in north-west Czech Republic in the Karlovy Vary Region. In the 1520’s the town was briefly occupied by Saxon troops who found the springs to be healing after a long day of battle and pillaging. Austria had control of the town until 1918 when it was reclaimed to the region. The area was rich in silver deposits, combined with the medicinal hot springs, it was a sought after territory which invoked men to wage war for control. Today, the region is not only peaceful, it welcomes travelers from all over the world who come to renew and reawaken their psychological selves and promote physical healing and pain management.

    Jachymov offers a broad range of medical and wellness treatments. Together with top-class physiotherapy, radon baths are the cornerstone of the treatment at Jáchymov. Mineral water containing radon is released into the special hydropathic baths from the bottom and is reminiscent of a spring slowly filling a pond. This ensures the most effective use of the therapeutic radon, which would otherwise be released before reaching the surface if the bath were filled in the usual manner. You will relax for 15 to 20 minutes in a bath at 35 - 37°C with an ideal concentration of radon at 4 - 5 kBq/litre. At the end of the procedure you will be wrapped in a warm blanket or sheet and lie on a couchette. It is necessary to have at least ten baths so that your body can react to the therapy and start the regeneration processes. The regeneration does not, however, stop after the last bath; it carries on for another four to six weeks. So how long will this energy help you with your pain? For some it is more than half a year. In the majority of cases, the use of analgesics and other medicines drops considerably.
