Bal­neother­apy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

This is es­sen­tially a min­eral wa­ter treat­ment. Hot or cold wa­ter, rich in min­er­als such as sil­ica, sul­phur, se­le­nium and ra­dium, is used. Mas­sages through mov­ing wa­ter also form an es­sen­tial part of this ther­apy. Al­though mod­ern tech­nol­ogy en­ables one to ben­e­fit from bal­neother­apy in a con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment, it is tra­di­tion­ally done out­doors. Since this ther­apy helps in re­duc­ing swelling as well as stiff­ness of mus­cles, it is also well­suited for arthri­tis pa­tients.
