The secret to why Hungarian thermal waters have such remarkable healing properties lies in the unique geological features of the region. Here the earth’s crust is thinner, so waters absorb beneficial minerals more effectively as they journey to the surface. The magic of the healing waters come from their unique mix of minerals and trace elements. Empirical observations of miraculous healing led to the building of more than 1,000 thermal baths in Hungary.
Much is already understood about the beneficial effects of thermal waters on bathers due to the messaging of minerals “sticking” to the skin in the baths. Less well known is the fact that they do not absorb into the skin – they are not “bio-available”.
