Underground Rehabilitation and Treatment Centre in Wieliczka Salt Mines
In the health of the Wieliczka salt mines the method subterraneotherapy - belneologic method of treating inflammation of the upper and lower respiratory tract symptoms and allergic diseases. This is particularly true of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic epifaringithus, sinusitis, hay fever. Therapy process is carried through many hours stay in the salt chamber in mines under the professional supervision of medical staff.
How Does It Work
Fundamental role in the mechanism of treatment plays a unique microclimate which is characterized by exceptional bacteriological purity, high humidity (relative humidity between 74 - 90%) and a high content of sodium chloride (24 mg/m3), and elements such as magnesium, manganese and calcium.
Mine air does not contain harmful impurities which abound in the environment on the surface. High humidity reduces the evaporation of water from the upper respiratory tract and prevents adverse drying mucosa of the upper respiratory tract.
Biodynamics in underground space play value volume difference of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the composition of the air, as well as new elements and compounds, such as radon, methane, hydrogen sulfide, and aerosols, in particular hydrochloric, sodium, magnesium and calcium.
Value can also have features such as a constant temperature of 10 - 12 degrees, the pressure, the movement of air ionization, light irradiation and other physico-chemical factors and the concentration of positive ions hydrogen.
Treatment in salt chambers "Wessel Lake" and "Eastern Mountains" at the III level (135 meters below ground level) is the active form of rehabilitation based on the modern breathing exercises, which includes exercises to control and correct breathing, learning respiratory diaphragm respiratory muscle training, as well as purification procedures bronchi.

In underground space biodynamics great play value difference volume of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the composition of ambient air, as well as new elements and compounds, such as radon, methane, hydrogen sulfide, and aerosols, in particular hydrochloric, sodium, magnesium and calcium.
Also have value features such as constant temperature of 9 - 12 ° C, pressure, air movement, ionization, light irradiation and other physical and chemical factors, as well as the concentration of positive hydrogen ions.
At Underground Rehabilitation - treatment centers for the treatment of respiratory diseases method of subterraneotherapy is used. This method has in particular the impact on patients incentives physical, chemical and biological origin, occurring only in the depths of the earth with a complex natural structure and biodynamics.
Help Your Breathing
Underground Rehabilitation and Treatment Centre only one in Poland and one of the few in the world realizes the active rehabilitation program based on modern breathing exercises in special microclimate of salt mines, which provides exercises breath control, correct breathing, abdominal breathing training diaphragm, respiratory muscle training, and procedures for cleansing the bronchi.
Treatment is carried out on the third level of the mine, at a depth of 135m below ground in the chamber "Wessel Lake." leading role in the mechanism of treatment plays a unique microclimate, which is characterized by exceptional bacteriological cleanliness, constant air temperature 10C - 12C, high humidity (c. 80%) and a high content of sodium chloride (24mg/m3) as well as elements such as magnesium, manganese and calcium.
Effect in breathing is increased activity of the cilia of respiratory epithelium, which enables increased efficiency of muco-resnichkovoy purification airways. The brine spray also has anti-inflammatory effects - general and local. Air contains trace elements present in the rock salt mainly in ionized form.
In this air pollution and no allergen acting in today's environment on the earth. Much humidity reduces the evaporation of moisture in the respiratory tract and prevents harmful dryness of mucous membranes of the respiratory tract.
Biodynamics great importance in underground spaces are: the volume concentration of gases other than air (oxygen and carbon dioxide, as well as new aerosol components: sodium chloride, magnesium calcium), a constant air temperature 10C - 12C, pressure, air movement, ionization, thermal radiation, and pH = 4.5 - with bacteriostatic properties.
healing microclimate dignity cameras depend on the natural properties of salt blocks corresponding to constantly observed ventilation and humidity as well as a large area of medical cameras.
Of considerable importance is also momentum which provides a daily change of climate during the descent to the level III 135 meters below the surface and leaving the surface.
