Around your camping, you will have the choice between two high places of hydrotherapy in France, Contrexéville and Vittel.
It is in the middle of the XVIIIrd century that Doctor Bagard has been looking for a mineral water with beneficial properties to treat the Duke of Lorraine. This is how he hears about the spring that gushes out at Contrexéville. In 1774, following his report, the virtues of Contrexéville water were officially recognized. This is how the history of its thermal spa really begins. Contrexéville thermal baths are specialized in the following pathologies: digestive disorders and metabolic diseases, urinary disorders, rheumatology. Calcium and magnesium sulphate waters, rich in minerals, are used in all of our treatments. Treatments can be carried out as part of a medical procedure or during a health stay (not covered).
The thermal baths of Vittel use water from Félicie, a natural, underground spring which is enriched as it travels with minerals. It is a sodium chlorinated water rich in mineral salts, ideal for rheumatological treatments thanks to its analgesic action on the joints. In addition, its high fluorine content contributes to the solidity of the skeleton. It is also calcium and magnesium sulphate water suitable for kidney and digestive treatments.
It is also widely used in the treatment of overweight. To make treatments more pleasant, it is heated to 36°C. The treatments are all carried out with Vittel water, but also with regenerating and revitalizing mud from the Monts du Forez, and turpentine, known for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. You will have access to the various areas of the thermal baths (massages, baths, multi-showers, etc.) and can also take advantage of the spa at preferential rates.
