The advantage of the Połczyn Spa Resort Grupa PGU SA is not only the possession of own deposits of peat, but also the Połczyn brine extracted from the depth of about 1200 m. Thanks to the unique composition and high concentration of natural mineral components such as sodium, calcium, magnesium, iodine, chlorides and sulphates, brine has unique healing qualities, which were already appreciated over 320 years ago. Today, the beneficial effects of Połczyn brine in the form of inhalation and healing baths can be experienced only in the facilities of the Połczyn Health Resort.
Brine stimulates the nerve endings of the skin, which increases its blood supply and improves the processes of local metabolism. Between the skin and saline water ion exchange takes place - in this way, the body is purified of toxins and deposits and absorbs life-giving elements. In addition, saline bath softens the epidermis, relaxes tense muscles, has analgesic, bacteriostatic, anti-inflammatory and relaxation effects. The use of saline baths is indicated in diseases of the musculoskeletal system, ischemic disease of the lower limbs and in dermatological diseases.
