Balneotherapy for therapeutic purposes has been used since ancient times, and was based on empirical experience carried forward from generation to generation. There is scientific evidence about the positive effects of the thermal water on the skin and on body weight, but studies with the mineral water from a borehole are missing. Objective: To investigate the effect of high mineralization geothermal water on the skin and body fat. Methods: The study included 50 women who received geothermal…

The effect of geothermal water on skinfold and body circumferences
20-minute baths of geothermal water are more effective than tap water for lowering of hypodermic fat content in the body and cholesterol level in serum, and 20–40 g/l geothermalWater is appropriate for an antilipidemic effect.

The effect of balneotherapy on body mass index, adipokine levels, sleep disturbances, and quality of life of women with morbid obesity
Balneotherapy improves sleep and quality of life of women with morbid obesity and, after balneotherapy, glucose, leptin, adiponectin, and visfatin levels may change positively.


Impact of Different Spa Waters on Inflammation Parameters in Human Keratinocyte HaCaT Cells
It is shown that spa waters, and particularly those derived from thermal springs, reduce parameters associated with inflammation, and it seems likely that trace elements such as selenium and zinc are critical for the observed effects.
A Dead Sea Water-Enriched Body Cream Improves Skin Severity Scores in Children with Atopic Dermatitis
The results clearly show the benefits of TP as a leave on-skin emulsion enrich with DS water in terms of skin barrier function, and can serve as an effective adjuvant treatment for AD skin as well as for its maintenance.
Effects of thermal water on skin regeneration.
It is proposed that the results of the topical treatment with the thermal water could be due to the favourable combination of a local wet environment with an anti-inflammatory action and that the regenerative properties of Comano thermal water observed in rabbits could be applied for human use.
Effect of Spa Spring Water on Cytokine Expression in Human Keratinocyte HaCaT Cells and on Differentiation of CD4+ T Cells
Spa spring water treatment suppressed the inflammatory cytokines production and also modulated the differentiation of CD4+ T cells into Th1, Th2, and Th17 cells, but not the Tregs cells, to evaluate the efficacy of spa spring water in Korea, in terms of the immune modulatory effect.
Evidence-based hydro- and balneotherapy in Hungary—a systematic review and meta-analysis
