Gastein Valley attracts visitors with all kinds of mountain sports, such as skiing, hiking, mountain biking and much more. Your constant companion: delectable enjoyment!

As for your soul, the mere sight of the Hohe Tauern peaks and their white glaciers will likely suffice.
In a nutshell - Gastein radon therapy stimulates the cells inside your body to repair themselves. While you lie in the , sweat in the or relax completely in the , the radon makes its way through your respiratory passages and skin into your body. In the process, this noble gas emits mild alpha radiation within your body. This radiation activates a special messenger substance, one which reduces inflammation and promotes the natural healing process. The result: The number of free radicals in your body is reduced and you have significantly less pain.
If you are pregnant, dealing with untreated hyperthyroidism, severe claustrophobia or cancer conditions in the first year after conclusion of therapy, you should not participate in radon therapy. If you are living with severe cardiovascular or renal complaints, always consult your physician first.
