Our Spa Center, in the heart of Abano Terme, is the true treasure chest of health. There, the magical encounter between the healing hyperthermal water of our spring and the thermal clay takes place and, through a 100% natural process, it turns into mature mud to soothe osteo-articular pain and slow down structural aging. In our Spa Center, hyperthermal water is transformed into beneficial steam to heal and protect the upper airways.

Hyperthermal water: nature's beneficial gift

The thermal water of the Euganean basin begins its journey at approx. 1,500 m above sea level in the Lessini Mountains, in the Venetian Pre-Alps. From those mountains, water drains into the subsoil and starts a patient journey of 80 km, lasting one hundred years, during which the water gets enriched with precious mineral salts. The journey ends when the water reaches the Euganean area and gushes back to the surface at temperatures over 80° C. Thermal water of the Euganean Spa is unique in the world for its abundant, chemical-physical quality and beneficial power.

European Patent

Anti-inflammatory active ingredients in Euganean thermal mud

European Patent No. 1571203 protects and guarantees the presence of numerous active ingredients in thermal mud, naturally produced during the maturing process when implemented correctly.
The scientific research carried out by the Centro Studi Termali Pietro d’Abano (Thermal Research Centre), the patent holder, has identified them and demonstrated their effectiveness in the treatment of chronic degenerative and inflammatory diseases, particularly of Osteoarticular origin.

Maturation of the mud

The Italian Ministry of Health has classified our Thermal Centre at Superior Level 1 for thermal mud-balneotherapy.
The Hotel Europa is part of the O.T.P network (Permanent Thermal Observatory) at the University of Padua, for controls on the mud maturing process and quality of the mud baths.

The mud matures in special vats at our Thermal Center over a period of approximately 3 months, due to constant contact with thermal water and exposure to sunlight, turning into a veritable natural medication, anti-inflammatory and analgesic, without potentially harmful side effects. This maturation process, which creates the cyanobacteria responsible for the beneficial actions of the mud, obtained a European patent for the therapeutic properties of thermal treatments.

It is actually one of the cyanobacteria isolated for the first time in our mature mud, ETS-05, which produces glycolipids with anti-inflammatory properties and stimulating properties that regenerate cartilage, rendering the mature mud unique.
In addition, the hormonal stimulation induced by thermal treatments, and particularly the production of endorphins, helps to relieve pain.
