Healing resource

Our curative radon water has an anti-inflammatory effect, alleviates pain, and heals. 

Radon is a naturally occurring noble gas which has always been present in the rocks and waters of the Fichtelgebirge. Yet the concentration of radon required to medicinal purposes is only available in a small number of places. A high concentration of the gas was identified in the Weißenstadt granite reserves.

It is used to treat chronic inflammatory, rheumatic diseases and particular forms of fibromyalgia syndrome (soft-tissue rheumatism). In addition, radon therapies improve the complexion, increase physical performance and strengthen the immune system. 

Something noble

The noble gas, found in the bedrock around Weißenstadt, exhibits a multitude of effects. Symptoms treatable with radon therapy range from problems of a rheumatic nature or degenerative spinal and joint problems, right through to diseases of...

 Even today, we are indebted to the wealth of experience transmitted through many generations of German doctors, who employed radon-bearing natural spring water in order to alleviate pain during the climacteric period, strengthen the immune system and generally revitalise the body.

The Weißenstadt radon resource allows us to offer a unique range of radon therapies, which alleviate pain, successfully treat illnesses of the musculoskeletal system, speed up certain healing process, and can reduce the intake of conventional medicines.

In radon spa therapy, radon is said to stimulate the human immune system and thereby alleviate illnesses. Radon is transmitted through the skin into the human organism by way of inhaling highly active air containing radon, or by bathing in baths or exercise pools. The medical healing properties of radon have been scientifically investigated and exploited for over a century, as a result of which three types of usage have been distinguished: 

  • Radon baths, whereby radon is transmitted through the skin
  • Radon inhalation, whereby patients breathe in air containing radon
  • Radon water as a liquid treatment, whereby the substance is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract

Here in our health hotel we employ all three forms of radon therapy. In a specially designed therapy area we have baths, inhalation rooms and an exercise pool which is supplied with radon. The effects produced can last for a period of several months.
