How therapy in Gastein improves your health and alleviates pain

In a nutshell - Gastein radon therapy stimulates the cells inside your body to repair themselves. While you lie in the <link kur heilmittel thermalwasser internal-link>radon-therapy bath, sweat in the radon vapor bath or relax completely in the <link kur heilmittel heilstollen internal-link>Gastein Healing Gallery, 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
