This technique consists of body immersion, in a bath or pool, in Thermal Water for a specific period of time and temperature.
The body immersion in the pool is complemented by physical exercise supervised by a hydrotherapist.

Calmness, muscle relaxation and a deep and stimulating tonic effect are the benefits of the Massage Shower. The technique combines massages and abundant jets of Thermal Water, in which the hydrotherapist uses the force of water in movement on the patient's body, using all the active principles of this element.
As the name suggests, the Jet Shower projects one or more jets of Mineral-Medical Water. Temperature and pressure may vary.
It activates blood circulation by applying Thermal Water at low pressure, allowing the water to exit through perforated tubes arranged in a circle. The result is a head-to-toe massage effect.

Using Thermal Water in particles, gas, vapour, or aerosol helps to improve the respiratory and hearing system. Eliminating secretions and treating respiratory tract infections are the primary purposes of ENT/respiratory tract techniques.
The technique uses the benefits of Chaves Thermal Water, as water is poured into one nostril, runs through the nasal passages and drains out of the other nostril due to the pressure of gravity.
