Thermal healing water
In the classical texts, tub baths are cited as a particularly effective type of overheating therapy (Svedana). Our thermal water, which has stored thousands of years of warmth and tranquillity at a depth of 2000m, is a special highlight of deep relaxation for most Pancha Karma guests.
Stages of Ayurvedic purification therapy
The following sequence is traditionally followed in Ayurvedic purification therapy:
Snehana (internal and external oiling), Svedana (overheating), Shodana (purging).
After the oiling, heat is applied either to the whole body or only to a specific part of the body. The oils used in the incredibly soothing and ordering Ayurvedic massages loosen hardening and tense tissues. They dissolve toxins that have been deposited for years and other stressful substances that can lead to illness and premature ageing.
Effect of heat therapy
These dissolved waste products can best be removed from the affected tissues via the blood and lymph. The application of heat dilates the blood and lymph vessels so that this removal can take place without blockages.
Many of these waste products are acidic and cause an over-acidification of our body environment. This over-acidification impedes normal metabolic processes.
Thermal water with "buffer effect
According to balneochemical research, soma´s thermal water is a sodium hydrogen carbonate chloride mineral thermal water. Due to this composition, our thermal water has a deacidifying effect. The sodium bicarbonate contained has a so-called "buffer effect", it neutralises acids.
After the Ayurvedic oil synchronous massage, which dissolves the acid metabolic waste products from the tissues, our patients are given a tub bath with our thermal water. This causes the required overheating to take place. In addition, the minerals naturally present in the thermal water are absorbed through the skin and can render the acidic metabolic waste products harmless.
Scientifically recognised effects of our healing waters
Bathing cures with mineral thermal waters can be carried out for the following illnesses:
- Chronic inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system;
- Post-traumatic damage to the musculoskeletal system;
- Paralysis of various origins;
- Neurovegetative regulatory disorders;
- Functional cardiovascular diseases;
- Ailments of old age;
In 2003 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Maharishi Ayurveda, initiated the purchase of the land for soma. The soma property not only meets the requirements of Vedic architecture (Sthapatya Veda), it has land-registered access to the thermal waters of the "Haager Drei-Königs-Quelle".
Maharishi's intention at the time was to combine the known effects of thermal water with the traditional effects of Ayurvedic medicine into an even more effective whole.
The thermal water was examined in the course of a "large healing water analysis" by the balneological department of the Federal Institute for Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research in Vienna. The water from the Drei-Königs-Quelle Haag meets the requirements for the declaration of spring water as healing water.
