Tips and hints

Classic terrain treatment is a special form of spa movement therapy. It is characterized by adequate intensity, full body workout in the fresh mountain air and nature. It is performed by normal or faster walking. Terrain therapy normalizes the vegetative functions of the organism: the cardiovascular system works more efficiently, breathing is stimulated, muscles and joints are strengthened and the whole metabolism is positively affected.
