Relax your senses with the sulfur baths

In San Vigilio di Marebbe, at the feet of the most wonderful Dolomites of South Tyrol, lies Hotel Aqua Bad Cortina, an idyllic oasis of wellness where you can enjoy the ancient tradition of healing baths. Since this year in the wellness center of the hotel guests can choose a special treatment: a bath in a silver quartzite bathtub, a mixture of precious stones and minerals, enjoying all the beneficial effects of the mineral water of Rio San Vigilio.

The sulfur bath Le Bagn offered by Hotel Aqua Bad Cortina of San Vigilio di Marebbe is a wellness treatment with ancient origins which allegedly helps healing rheumatic and skin diseases, and relieves stress.

The treatment is about 22 minutes long, the time needed to fully enjoy the beneficial effects of steam and essences. It consists in soaking in a silver quartzite bathtub filled with healing water and covered with a pine wood board which leaves your upper body uncovered. After 22 minutes, the water is drained while you remain in the bathtub to breathe in the last beneficial essences. After another 14 minutes the treatment is over and you are offered a glass of mineral water, natural or sparkling.

This special hydropinic treatment, which consists in taking a sulfur bath and drinking spring mineral water, is effective against a number of diseases, especially those of the digestive and nervous systems. Moreover, the combination of pine wood fragrance, essences brought out by the steam, and the sound of running water relaxes all your senses.
