Gastein works. That's what guests say who come to our valley every year for therapy.
And this is supported by countless scientific studies. Which is very much the focus of the Gastein Research Institute, affiliated with Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg. Under the leadership of institute director Prof. Dr. Markus Ritter, the Gastein Research Institute conducts primary clinical and fundamental studies examining the various forms of natural therapy available in Gastein.
The studies involve close cooperation with other Austrian and international research institutions. At the very top of the list of research themes are rheumatic disorders and degenerative joint diseases. Much is already known about the benefits of Gastein radon therapy. Yet many of the mechanisms involved have still to be investigated. The independence of this research institution is yet another important guarantee of the quality and objectivity of their findings.
