Natural resources with medicinal effects, like mineral springs, the peloids (i.e. peat, mud and moor), or climatic conditions, you won't find just anywhere. They are found only in a few areas in the world, among others in Central Europe and mostly just in the Czech Republic. The place of their occurrence is always unique and crucial for the composition of the natural resources. Czech Spa medicine, balneal therapy, is an integral part of the European cultural heritage, and thanks to the high quality of the natural medicinal resources, has an extraordinary reputation and gravity in Europe and overseas as well.
All of the springs rising on the territory of Mariánské Lázně yield slightly mineralised and cold acidulous water with temperatures between 7 and 10 degrees Celsius. They rise from low depths and differ only in their chemical composition, which mostly consists of water, carbon dioxide, and dissolved rock. The local mineral springs offer up to six different chemical compositions.
Acidulous waters are the result of precipitation that penetrates into the soil and gradually descends further down through fissures in the bedrock. The flow of groundwater mixes with rising carbon dioxide present in the subsoil to create a slightly acidic environment in which minerals from the surrounding rocks dissolve. The strength and rate of the flow of the acidulous water rising to the surface is augmented by the gas released as a result of reduced surrounding pressure.
The different chemical composition of the local springs facilitates the treatment of a great variety of diseases. Thanks to their diversity, patients suffering with kidney or urinary tract diseases, respiratory, digestive, or skin disorders come to Mariánské Lázně. The mineral springs also aid in the treatment of metabolic and endocrine gland disorders, as well as diseases affecting the nervous or the musculoskeletal system.
