Our SPA: the best place for a new body feeling

For its organization and structure, the Hotel Continental Terme has all the features of a small thermal park in the centre of Ischia Porto, boasting 5 thermal swimming pools with different temperatures and a first-class SPA and Beauty Center, complemented by the beneficial effect of the surrounding lush park.

In Italy and abroad, the name of Ischia is associated with SPAs and thermal waters, which are its most special attraction. The therapeutic qualities of this water and of the relevant treatments were already known to both Greeks and Romans. There are thermal springs in almost every town of the island. A particularly interesting basin of thermal-mineral water is the one found nearby the Hotel Continental Terme. The waters drawn from the spring “Tifeo”, pumped from a depth of 39 meters, are at the same time hyper-thermal (naturally warm, at temperatures ranging from 55° to 72°C) and saline-alkaline-earthy (rich in sodium, chlorine, calcium and magnesium).

Balneotherapy (bath therapy) is one of the best known thermal treatments. The mineral waters with active therapeutic effect have special components favouring cures and healing. The most common treatment consists in bathing in the warm water of the thermal pools, with a temperature between 30° and 40 °C. After this, it is necessary to rest for 30 - 40 minutes in order to enhance the beneficial effect of the treatment. Balneotherapy provides an effective support to the treatment of diseases affecting the locomotor system, post-traumatic and post-surgical recovery and for cases of weak vascular and lymphatic system. In addition, it helps regaining the natural physical wellbeing, as the warmth of the water favours muscle relaxation.

Thermal water is also employed for aereosol therapy, which allows the beneficial thermal particles to reach even the thinnest ramifications of the respiratory system, thus curing acute diseases and providing relief in case of chronic affections, from a common cold to chronic bronchitis and bronchial asthma.

Another widespread use of thermal water is in thermal mud therapy (fangotherapy), which consists in the application of thermal mud on the interested areas of the body. The natural clay macerates for a long time in thermal water, thus absorbing their beneficial properties. Afterwards the thermal mud is applied in form of masks or bandages at a temperature and for a duration as recommended by the doctor responsible for the thermal center during the medical pre-examination.
