The healing waters of mineral spas are sought the world over. People have travelled long distances at great expense to enjoy their blissful relaxation and anti-aging effects. In modern medicine, mineral spa treatment is known to aid healing and has actually become a recognised speciality: Balneotherapy.

Our thermal spas in their mineral composition, temperature and other properties are essentially identical to those offered in the best European health resorts.
Health Point Balneotherapy extends beyond relaxation and anti-ageing. Your program is created by a qualified physiotherapist from an array of treatments to help you reach your health goals sooner.

How Does Balneotherapy Work?
By boosting cell oxygen levels and the blood circulation rate, Balneotherapy improves the flow of oxygen-rich blood to vital organs and tissues. These and other restorative processes help to rid the body of toxins, reduce pain & inflammation and restore health. Over the treatment period mineral spas in combination with other therapeutic modalities and dietary modification improve the immune, nerve and gland functions, so important to health. Your body boosts its resistance to illness, promotes calmness and feels totally rejuvenated.
Relaxing and beneficial treatment
"I recently had a mineral bath and the Scenar blanket at Health Point Physiotherapy. I am just writing to say what a wonderful relaxing time I had and a big thank you. The mineral bath was so relaxing and healing and then to top it off with the Scenar blanket I felt like all my cells were whole again and healthy to fall asleep cuddled up that is how amazing it was. So once again, thank you to Margarita at Health Point Physiotherapy I look forward to having another session to top me up again with health and healing" — Joann Colless
