It is a unique hydropathic treatment that improves cardiovascular function, supplies tissues with higher levels of oxygen, normalises blood pressure and helps train the heart muscle. During the treatment, the body is covered with tiny bubbles of CO2, and the carbon dioxide penetrates through the skin (the penetration is proved to be 100 times better than that of water). Due to certain biochemical reactions, CO2 causes haemoglobin to release more oxygen. The small blood vessels expand, the body gets more oxygen, and the heart muscle can enjoy an easier work regime. The treatment has a thermoregulatory effect as well.
Carbon dioxide baths reduce the symptoms of heart failure such as shortness of breath, fatigue, palpitations, swelling of the legs, stimulates mechanisms of cardiac muscle recovery, improves cardiac muscle nutrition, and facilitates the adaptation of cardiovascular system to exercise. In addition, these baths are suitable for the treatment of various metabolic disorders and circulatory disorders of the limbs.
