“A getaway, a change of pace, a stay in the country – for some people with chronic conditions, these can be powerful curative means, especially when complimented by the calm of the sky, the coolness of the water, the softness of the shadows, and the shelter of the surrounding mountains. This is certainly a reality at Vals-les-Bains thermal baths.“ Dr Lafosse, 1882

    • Vaporium
    • Hydromassage and carbogas bath (individual treatment)

      Action décontractante et relaxante d’un hydromassage doux dans un bain d’eau thermale. Effet antalgique sur les douleurs abdominales.

      Selon la prescription médicale, on peut y adjoindre la diffusion de microbulles de gaz carbonique sous pression qui permet une diminution sensible de la pression artérielle.

      Une douche sous-marine locale (abdominale ou hépatique) peut compléter ce soin.

      Son action est décongestionnante.

    • Jet shower (individual treatment)

      Douche manuelle chaude réalisée par un hydrothérapeute à l’aide d’un jet d’eau thermale dont la pression peut être modulée selon les indications médicales. Elle active la circulation sanguine, tonifie les masses musculaires et assouplit les tissus. En localisation hépatique, elle améliore le transit intestinal.

    • Douche pénétrante (soin individuel)

      Une rampe en pluie chaude (36-40°) réalise un massage sur le curiste couché à plat ventre sur une table de massage.

      Les effets combinés de l’eau et de la chaleur favorisent la relaxation musculaire et une sédation générale.

    • General shower

      De multiples jets d’eau chaude permettent un effet de massage décontractant, antalgique et tonifiant sur tout le corps, le curiste étant debout.

    • Cataplasm, application of thermal silt on 3 locations

      Application de boue sur 3 localisations :

      • rachis,
      • hépatique,
      • cadre colique

      Cette boue est réalisée à partir d’argile et de boue de la source Dominique mélangées avec de l’eau thermale. Son action antalgique et relaxante est due à sa composition et à ses propriétés thermiques.

      Le soin est effectué entre 43° et 46°C, ce qui permet d’agir sur les douleurs articulaires et musculaires.

      En application digestive, il décongestionne la région hépatique et atténue les douleurs abdominales.

    • Massage sous eaux thermale

      Massage manuel pratiqué par un kinésithérapeute sous une rampe d’eau chaude, associant les bienfaits de l’eau à l’action du massage.

      Particulièrement relaxant et sédatif, il permet :

      • d’assouplir des tissus,
      • d’améliorer la circulation veineuse,
      • de favoriser la détente musculaire.

      Au niveau hépatique, il active le transit intestinal et diminue les douleurs abdominales.

    • Frigitherapy

      Application d’eau thermale gélifiée au niveau des jambes ayant un effet stimulant et tonifiant sur la circulation veineuse.
