The five-star Hotel President Terme is just over 20 miles from Venice Marco Polo Airport, in the centre of Abano Terme in the Veneto region, at the foot of the Euganean Hills. Here, the Hotel President Terme sits in the heart of one the oldest health spa destinations in Europe.

Thermal treatment is a genuine source of wellbeing. The combination of local thermal water and the clay originating from the lakes of Lispida and Arquà creates the thermal mud, which is applied during the mud therapy sessions.

The mud therapy session takes place in four distinct stages: the guest is made comfortable in a quiet room where the thermal mud is applied to the areas of the body that have been recommended by the doctor. They’re then covered and left to relax. The mud has an average temperature of 38C to 40C and remains on the body for 15-20 minutes, depending on the medical prescription. The mud is then removed. This is followed by a thermal shower and a hot thermal bath enriched with ozone. The thermal water is almost body temperature — between 36C and 38C — and the relaxing bath lasts for about 10 minutes. The treatment is completed with a revitalising massage aimed at stimulating muscular and nervous activity.

The conditions for which mud therapy is recommended and prescribed are increasingly numerous; the most frequent are the various types of arthropathies — arthrosis, arthritis, rheumatism — and osteo-arthropathies caused by ageing, eating disorders and trauma. Excellent results can also be seen during the recovery period after injuries or fractures. It has also been found that mud therapy can have significant effects on problems occurring before and after pregnancy, allergic and auto-immune inflammatory diseases, and skin alterations.

The spa team is coordinated by a medical director, a thermal-doctor who specialises in sports medicine, with the support of a dietitian or nutritionist. And for those wishing to get in shape, there are diet detox and reshape programmes, together with activities such as fitness, Nordic walking, golf, gym and biking.
