As far back as in the end of the 18th century there were rumors spreading about the “miraculous” waters that soften skin and heal wounds, about the healers Sūručiai, ordinary peasants, who began using mineral water for treatment purposes.
Calcium and sodium chloride waters of different mineralization, containing more of magnesium and bromine, with chemical composition similar to the well-known European mineral waters, used for treatment, are found in the resort.
Mineral spring waters are efficient in healing stomach, intestine, muscles, joints, spine, peripheral nervous system, cardiovascular, gynecological, skin, as well as endocrine system diseases.
Is there anyone who hasn’t heard about Druskininkai mud that “works wonders”? The resort is rich in curative peaty mud deposits. Peaty mud treatment distinguishes for the thermal, mechanical, and chemical effect.
Remedial mud is used for treatment of connective tissue and skeleton, muscles, digestive system, joints, nerves, urogenital, and respiratory system diseases.
Mild climate and ionized air is another remedial factor of the resort. Because of the pine forests and dozens of water bodies surrounding Druskininkai, as well as absence of industry, the air is very clean here, and abundant negative (light) ions are the fundamental evidence of clean air.
