From the ancient traditions of mountain farmers comes the warmth released by Alpine grasses in a cutting-edge medical treatment: grass baths against joint pain and rheumatisms.
WHERE TO FIND US
The town of Garniga Terme is located at an altitude of 810 metres above sea level on the south-eastern slope of Monte Bondone, just a few kilometres from Trento and Rovereto. The fine air and the sunny position make this town the ideal venue for unforgettable and relaxing getaways, immersed in a pristine natural landscape abounding in Alpine vegetation and genuine hospitality.
GRASS BATHS: PHYTO-BATH THERAPY
From the ancient traditions of mountain farmers comes a unique cure that is one of its kind in Italy and that has scientifically validated the evolution of hay baths into "phyto-bath therapy", the scientific name now given to grass baths. This thermal method uses freshly harvested grasses coming from selected pastures located on Monte Bondone, where a rich mixture of officinal plants and flowers grows, unique in Trentino. Among the many species of plants used for the bath, of special significance are gentian, mountain arnica, hypericum, thyme, taraxacum, carline thistle and alpine anemone.
Nature always has a remedy for every physical problem. The medicinal plants at Garniga are effective in curing (by means of packs and baths) pain and rigidity of the bones, joints and muscles.
The main ailments treated are:
• primary and secondary osteoarthrosis
• diffused and localised extra-articular rheumatism (periarthritis of the shoulder and hip,
insertional tendonitis, bursitis)
• lower back pain and spondiloarthritis
• lumbar sciatalgia
• carpal tunnel syndrome
• muscle spasms, joint rigidity and post-trauma pain.
A cosy habitat and a very welcoming wellness centre help guests find the right balance between mind and body: a luminous indoor pool with large Jacuzzi tub; a wellness area with sauna and steam bath, mood-setting showers and ice fall; a spacious area dedicated to rest and relaxation; beauty area for aesthetic and remise-en-forme treatments.
