The towns of Abano, Montegrotto, Battaglia, Teolo and Galzignano represent the largest spa centre in Europe, specialised in mud balneotherapy and spa treatments. Since all the hotels in this town have an agreement with the Italian health service, they are excellent places for spa treatments in Veneto thanks to the wide variety of therapies offered under the supervision and responsibility of specialised medical staff.
The natural wealth of these spas in Veneto includes Fango Maturo D.O.C. and the spa water of the Terme Euganee, two very precious resources that allow the treatment and prevention of a wide range of ailments.
Fango Maturo D.O.C. is a real natural form of medicine, studied and researched for at least two centuries in collaboration with the University of Padua. It is currently used as a compress for therapeutic purposes. Its healing action is due to a mixture of at least 3 components:
A compress created with this mixture acquires therapeutic properties after a period of “maturation” lasting 50-60 days, when the mud is kept in special tanks called “fangaie” and remains in contact with spa water that flows at a temperature of 60°C.
In close contact, mud and spa water help to develop a non-pathogenic thermophilic microbial community, which causes chemical and physical changes, thus enhancing both with valuable therapeutic active ingredients.
The therapeutic benefits of these wellness centres in Veneto are used to treat a number of diseases, especially those of a rheumatic and articular nature such as arthritis, discopathy, cervicalgia (neck pain), hernias, periarthritis, articular rheumatism, osteoporosis and other degenerative conditions, fibrosis and fibromyositis, bronchitis, pharyngitis and rhinitis, ear infections as well as many other ailments. The benefits of a cycle of spa treatments last for a long time and do not cause the gastrolesive effects of anti-inflammatory drugs.
