Setting and special features

Located in the heart of the Alps far from city pollution, the Leukerbad Clinic is set in spectacular mountain scenery, the source of thermal water whose therapeutic properties have been acknowledged since Roman times. The thermal water of the Leukerbad Clinic is particularly beneficial in that its chemical composition soothes rheumatism. Its natural warmth relaxes muscles and promotes healthy joints.

 

The mountain environment has always been renowned for its qualities, due to the lack of pollen at altitude, the unpolluted air, and long hours of sunshine. The latter not only encourages the production of vitamin D in the skin, but also helps to prevent cancer and slows down the aging process.

 

The AMAS 2000 study (Austrian Moderate Altitude Study) carried out between 1998 and 2000 demonstrated that a stay at altitude offers many health benefits, such as:

  • Improved operation of the cardiovascular system;
  • Stimulation of the metabolism;
  • Reduction of body fat;
  • Increase in the number of red blood cells and improved oxygenation of body tissue as a result;
  • Reduction of free radicals;
  • Enhanced sense of wellbeing. 

 

The thermal water and pure air of the mountains help to eliminate toxins and improve rest.

The ideal altitude stimulates the production of red blood cells, encouraging more oxygen into your body. These elements provide optimal conditions for recharging your batteries.
