Treatment in Russia
There is a special category of travelers who prefer Russian sanatoriums to any exotic vacation abroad and annually go along the same routes to local health resorts. For such tourists, there are no other attachments, because at home, as you know, and walls help. For the sake of objectivity, it should be noted that treatment in Russia is not limited to walls, and the healing factors of each health resort are fully consistent with world ideas about the advisability of choosing a spa treatment as a way to spend a vacation..
What are the resorts?
There is a conditional division of all Russian resorts into three types, each of which includes health resorts with special methods and treatment programs:
- The list of therapeutic factors in climatic resorts is headed, as it is not difficult to guess, by the climate. Health resorts are being built in an area where there are no strong weather changes, where the indicators of atmospheric pressure, humidity and temperature do not jump. The climatic resorts of Russia are an ideal vacation spot for the elderly and allergy sufferers, patients with pathologies of the heart, blood vessels and respiratory organs. When treating in such resorts, it will not take time for acclimatization, getting used to high humidity or high temperatures. The most popular climatic resorts of the country are Karelian, Kaliningrad and Moscow region health resorts.
- Balneological health resorts base their treatment programs on mineral waters from natural healing springs. This is how many diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, joints and bones are treated. Mineral water regulates and normalizes the activity of the endocrine glands, and therefore treatment in Russia at balneological resorts is indicated for endocrinological patients. The most popular resorts from this list are Kislovodsk, Zheleznovodsk and Essentuki..
- Mud resorts use the healing sludge of natural reservoirs as the main therapeutic agent. Healing mud applications and masks, massage and wrapping courses help to get rid of pain in joints and spine, improve reproductive function, help to forget about inflammations of various localization and etiology. Mud therapy is used in the sanatoriums of Pyatigorsk, Marcial waters and Essentuki.
Russian resorts, as a rule, combine several therapeutic factors at once, and their programs are designed in such a way that patients can receive a varied and versatile treatment..
