Live pain-free - naturally

The Heilstollen therapy will help you in a purely natural way. The effectiveness of Heilstollen treatment is scientifically proven. 80-90% of our patients with certain indications benefit from the radon-hyperthermia treatment. The body’s own healing messenger substances and anti-inflammatory defenses are activated.

The exceptional effect is attributed to the naturally occurring combination of the following three healing factors or active agents:

• Natural radon content of 44 kBq/m³ in the Heilstollen air (on average)
Warmth with an air temperature of 37.0 to 41.5° Celsius
Relative humidity of 70 to almost 100 %

The Heilstollen train takes you ca. 2.5 km into the depths of the mountain. The heat and high humidity heat the body up to a temperature of 38o Celsius, which in turn increases the absorption of radon. The natural noble gas, radon, stimulates cell metabolism with its short-duration emissions. The varying temperatures and levels of humidity in the individual therapy stations allow treatments to be individually customized according to the patient’s symptomology and heat tolerance.

It has been shown that patients with diseases of the loco-motor apparatus (such as Bechterew’s disease) can expect pain alleviation for up to 9 months and reduced need for medication lasting as much as 1 year after the treatment. Skin disorders and respiratory diseases are also responsive to immune stabilization.
