In the Carpathian Basin in Central Europe, where Hungary is located, the crust of the earth is very thin, so these waters right from the core of the earth rise to the surface very easily.
There are more than 200 thermal spas – most of them are medicinal spas – in the country, in addition to the smaller undeveloped village hot springs. Hot water is so abundant that it is sometimes used for heating spa hotels, greenhouses and for other practical purposes.
Thermal waters in Hungary have been used for curative purposes since the times of Romans who developed and extensive bathing culture around the hot springs. But even before Roman times, according to archeological evidence as early as 600 thousand years ago primate men settled around the hot springs and the Celts, who built their town on the site which is now Budapest, named their settlement: Five Waters or Abundant Waters (Ak –Ink)
Most Hungarian spa resorts use their hot springs complimentary to regular medicinal methods in many type of diseases and conditions like skin diseases, locomotion problems, skeletal problems, gynecological complaints, cardiovascular and digestive disorders, respiratory problems, kidney diseases, neurological problems, etc. depending on the composition of their waters. Hungary spa treatments are covered by the Hungarian medical insurance plan and regularly prescribed by Hungarian doctors as part of natural rehabilitation protocols.
Hungarian spa waters are excellent and widely used for the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism and other locomotor disorder.
