People have known about the healing powers of salt-water for thousands of years. Aussee salt-water, which comes directly from the Altaussee Salzberg mountain (the Sandling), has been used as a traditional remedy for more than 100 years, and has a number of therapeutic properties.
Aussee salt-water helps discomfort in the musculo-skeletal system, metabolism issues, digestive complaints, respiratory problems, illnesses of the heart and circulatory system and with general convalescence. It normalises blood pressure, reduces pain and provides strength.
The salt-water spa and vital resort makes salt-water's healing properties accessible not just to guests following a treatment regime, but also to visitors to the spa, in a particularly appealing way. The illuminated salt crystal containing a salt grotto and salt steam room is unique. This relaxation pool, deliberately designed to be low in stimuli, ensures guests can unwind completely. Many of the medical wellness and treatment options are also based on the properties of Aussee salt-water. It is used in salt and mud packs, salt inhalation, drinkable treatments and baths. The salt-water, with its effect of Glauber's salt, is also used in the Dr. FX-Mayr treatment.
