  • Decongestion and improved function of the respiratory system,
  • Stimulation of an impaired olfactory receptor function,
  • Permanent moisturising of the respiratory tract,
  • Stimulation of mucosal gland activity,
  • Restored ease of breathing.

INDIVIDUAL, MEDICINAL AND PNEUMATIC INHALATIONS – HEALTH AND THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS 

The inhalations consist in introducing medicinal substances in the form of an aerosol into the respiratory system.

Results of the inhalations:

  • Decongestion and improved function of the respiratory system,
  • Stimulation of an impaired olfactory receptor function.

  • Stimulating effect – increased blood pressure.

GALVANIC BATH – PAIN RELIEF, IMPROVED WELL-BEING, AND THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS 

This is another electrotherapeutic water treatment. This treatment is very stimulating, as it uses four types of stimuli for the patient's body at the same time: electrical, mechanical, hydrostatic pressure and thermal.

Results of the bath:

  • Reduced pain,
  • Regulated blood pressure,
  • Reduced blood pressure in arterial hypertension,
  • Increased blood pressure in patients with low blood pressure.

SOLLUX LAMP – PAIN RELIEF, THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS, AND IMPROVED WELL-BEING 

The treatment consists of radiation with both infra-red and visible light. Thermal properties are essential characteristics of infra-red radiation. The Sollux lamp is fitted with a set of glass filters. A red filter allows visible red and infra-red light to pass. It is used for soft tissue inflammations, skin damage, difficult to heal wounds, myalgia, neutralising violet light in cases of overdose, and reducing muscular tension before kinaesthetic therapy or massage. A blue or violet filter allows blue light to pass. Light passing through this filter demonstrate analgesic and calming effects, as well as resulting in vasoconstriction. A blue or violet filter is used for neuralgia, post-traumatic conditions, frostbite, hypersensitivity and vasomotor disorders. The choice of filter is determined by the desired therapeutic effect.

Results of the treatment:

  • Improved quality of life,
  • Improved functionality.

LASER THERAPY – THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS AND IMPROVED WELL-BEING
