Water has been used for therapeutic purposes since ancient times, going back to the Egyptians and the Macedonians. It was the Romans who invented thermal baths and built them for hygiene and relaxation purposes as well as for serving as a social meeting point.
Pythagoras established the 4 pillars of health, which are: a vegetarian diet, cold baths, gym and a healthy lifestyle. These 4 principles have remained with us throughout history and still comprise the pillars of a good spa, such as the Gran Hotel Balneario Blancafort.
Mineral-medicinal waters are those whose chemical and physical composition endow them with therapeutic properties. The properties of the spring waters of La Garriga have been well known since the Bronze Age, when they were the object of ritual worship. Since the Roman era these waters have been used for diverse purposes due to their properties of being anti-inflammatory, regulators of the nervous system, effective treatments for arthritis, joint pains, stress or simply relaxing baths to complement a good rest.
The waters of the Gran Hotel Balneario Blancafort Thermal Centre in addition to being mineral-medicinal waters, are alkaline and hyper-thermal since they flow at a temperature of 60° C. Owing to their subterranean and magmatic origin they are replete with sulphate and chloride, the reason for which they are especially indicated as external helping agents in treating skin problems while improving the immune system. Due to their sedative, painkilling effects they are also indicated for stress, muscular hypertonia, increased blood flow as well as problems with the locomotive system like contractions and fractures.
Orally, they are indicated for digestion complaints and gastritis as well as being effective laxatives, diuretics and stimulants in cases of liver disorders.
