A five-star Czech health spa hotel in Karlovy Vary is tapping local mineral-rich spring water to help aid people recovering after COVID-19.

The Life after COVID-19 programme is offered at The Hotel Savoy Westend and lasts seven days, but in-house doctors recommend participants spend at least a minimum of a week on the protocol.

Hydrotherapy using Karlovy Vary water anchors the schedule, including electrotherapy treatments, bathing and ultrasonic water inhalation to cleanse the respiratory tract.

This is complemented by hot mineral water being drunk three times daily before meals and peloid wraps and massages.

Specialists at the spa claim the therapy combination will help guests recover by positively contributing to functions that support immunity – including neutralising the acidity of stomach acid, increasing the excretion of bile, regenerating hepatic cells and rebalancing disturbed intestinal microflora.

The mineral water is enriched 2,500 metres below the Earth’s surface and is accessible at 15 different springs in the spa town of Karlovy Vary – each with a unique temperature and mineral composition.

The package costs €414 (£366, US$502) per day per person, excluding accommodation and food.

All guests’ journeys will begin with an initial check-up examining their antibody and iron levels, along with a liver scan and lung function test. This is repeated again two weeks after guests complete the treatment to assess progress.
