The thermal baths
For more than 3000 years, a gift of nature
The thermal waters that flow from the Euganean Hills and the muds-left to mature directly in the Eliseo's pools-are our most precious ancestral asset.
We have combined the Thermae of Abano Montegrotto's thousands of years of tradition and the healing properties of mud and water with our skills, to create a spa devoted to preventive health. A real temple of well-being for guests.
Rheumatism, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and respiratory diseases: our medical health team will prescribe treatments and therapies for you and will be by your side to ensure that the therapies are as effective as possible.
Fabulous Thermal baths
The thermal waters
Of primordial origins, appreciated and known already by the ancient Romans, our thermal waters filter into the healthy river basins of the Prealps. They are unique in the world, rich in sodium, potassium, magnesium, iodine, bromine and silicon: they are naturally hot, so they are cooled and then used for the treatments that make the Thermae of Abano Montegrotto a perfect destination for getting back into shape.
Above all, our waters are essential for the process of maturation and conservation of thermal muds, which have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. The Eliseo Hotel's mud has been classified by the Ministry of Health as1st Superior Category for its quality and its confirmed therapeutic characteristics. Furthermore, our thermal baths are included in the monitoring network of the University of Padua and of the CNR (Italian National Research Council) to maintain control over the maturation process and the quality of the thermal muds.
Medical examination for admission
For admission to the treatments, the doctor-health director at the spa-will give you a check-up, after looking at your documentation, in order to generate a personal file that will include the most appropriate treatments for you. The medical examination is mandatory and preparatory for the mud therapy cycle.
Our thermal mud is a happy combination of clay, mineral waters, active ingredients and algae, which make it a powerful anti-inflammatory treatment with relaxing properties for the muscles and the nervous system. The mud therapy takes place in cubicles at the Hotel Eliseo and involves the application of mud at a temperature of between 40° and 42° C for 15-20 minutes, after which it is rinsed off with thermal water showers and then immersion.
Balneotherapy with ozone
During balneotherapy with ozone, which is a therapeutic treatment that can also be performed without mud therapy, you immerse yourself in thermal water pools for 15 minutes-with a temperature of between 37° C and 38° C-to enhance the effects of the mud therapy and to assimilate the vasodilatory, relaxing and analgesic properties of the waters. The addition of the very delicate ozone hydromassage multiplies the benefits of the treatment by stimulating blood circulation. The resulting sweating reaction will take place in your room.
A rare privilege reserved for our guests is the thermal grotto, an evocative 12 m² space filled with hot, humid thermal air. The temperature is around 55-60° C and the humidity is around 85-90%. The grotto is perfect for the vasodilatory process, muscle relaxation and skin purification.
Inhalations and Aerosol
The aerosols and nebulisers at the Hotel Eliseo's spa centre will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of the thermal water, resolve bronchial problems, including chronic ones, and assist in the treatment of respiratory diseases, such as rhinitis and sinusitis.
Synergistic and preventive treatments
Hydrokinesis in thermal water
A natural and regenerating treatment: with water gymnastics you will combine the properties of water with movement. We recommend one treatment per day for 1-2 weeks.
At the Hotel Eliseo you will find physiotherapists for physiotherapy massages and kinesitherapy.
Manual osteopathic therapy
Osteopathy is recommended for neck and lower back pain, cervicalgia neck pain, lower back sciatica and herniated discs. This is recommended every 2-3 days.
Manual treatment with fibrolysers for those suffering from chronic back problems, or longstanding stiffness and contractures, herniated discs, osteophytes, paraesthesia, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome. It is recommended every 3-4 days.
Therapeutic reaction massage
To complete the thermal cycle, we recommend a traditional western tension relieving and muscle relaxant massage, based on touching and applying more or less intense pressure on the skin and muscles. It improves muscle tone by acting on blood and lymphatic circulation.
Foot reflexology is an excellent natural health check-up for the feet: it consists of acupressure on the feet to stimulate the functionality of the internal organs.
Tension relieving massage
A treatment dedicated to those suffering from localised muscle tension in the back, greatly appreciated by sportspeople and by those who are compelled to maintain incorrect positions for a long time.
Cervical spine massage
Excellent therapy for those who suffer from neck pain. It consists of a gentile massage useful for preventing and treating neck pain.
Connective tissue massage
It acts on changes in the condition of the connective tissues responsible for the most common imperfections, such as cellulitis and wrinkles, improving vascularisation. We recommend it together with lymphatic drainage.
Therapeutic lymphatic drainage
It is a manual massage practiced to promote lymph circulation and the elimination of stagnant organic fluids and toxins, promoting their reabsorption and relaxing the muscle fibres. Also recommended for women who have undergone a mastectomy.
Abdominal massage with the Adamski method and stretching of the arteries
It consists of manipulating the abdomen, the femoral artery and the saphenous vein, unblocking the duodenum combined with plant compresses for swollen abdomen with constipation and heavy legs. We recommend it once a week.
