One of our best medical spa destination is Hajdúszoboszló, mecca for rheumatism. A popular destination for rheumatism sufferers, this resort of superlatives, is situated in the north-east of the Great Plains (Puszta), about 200 kilometres from Budapest. The town on the edge of the Hortobágy National Park is blessed with approximately 2,000 hours of sunshine per year and is also home to Hungary’s largest bathing and rehabilitation complex, employing no fewer than eight rheumatologists.
A total of 30 giant pools of healing brown water are scattered over 30 hectares of land. The effectiveness of the water in treating rheumatism lies in its high iodine and bromine content. The concentration of salt in the water here is five times more than that found in seawater. This is complemented by oestrogen and a range of trace elements, including titanium, copper and lead; ingredients employed in 40 different treatments with proven results. And it goes without saying that the many departments in the complex meet the latest medical standards. Recent research has shown that the likelihood of a successful cure for a wide range of diseases is considerably higher here than it had been previously thought. The weight bath treatment developed in Hungary has proved particularly beneficial.
