A highlight of the Gastein Valley: The Gastein Heilstollen! This was discovered in the 1940s "by chance": The original gold diggers found hot radon water vapor and got rid of their rheumatic complaints.
The University of Innsbruck found in 1951, "... ascribed that treatment in the Gastein Heilstollen has healing values .... which, in a substantial number of illnesses, exceeds that of the most modern methods of treatment." In 1951, the cure was included in the Gastein Heilstollen, finding relief for people with musculoskeletal (Bechterew's disease, rheumatism, gout, sports injuries and more.), respiratory (chronic bronchitis, asthma, COPD and much more.) and skin (psoriasis, eczema) disorders.
The holistic concept of treatment in the Gastein Heilstollen: The air in the 2.5 km long, totally unique Heilstollen has a radon content of 44kBq / m3, the temperature is 37 to 41.5 degrees C and humidity up to 100%. A therapy session lasts about 90 minutes - of which you effectively spend 60 minutes in the "healing" zone - where the optimal limit for you is defined under medical supervision and by recommendation. If you seek treatment in the Gastein Heilstollen - you thereby experience an all-round treatment.
Pain Relief: The combination of radon, heat and high humidity allows significant pain relief in the case of problems with the musculoskeletal system and respiratory diseases - substantial savings in the use of drugs (eg painkillers) are supported by scientific studies. Medical Therapy: An optimised combination of traditional medicine supplemented with naturopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provides an individual treatment approach and personalized treatment plan.
