Bormio Terme is affiliated to the Italian National Health Service (level 1 super) for its inhalation treatments: therefore showing the prescription of your GP, or private specialist, every Italian citizen is entitled to a round of thermal treatments by simply paying the standard 'ticket'.
Inhalation treatments adopt a range of techniques and involve the introduction within the respiratory system of thermal waters in a vaporised state with all the gases contained within.
The process doesn't involve just the major respiratory system because through the mucous membranes, the lymphatics and bloodstream, the salutary effect reaches out other organs within the body promoting a strengthening of the whole defense system.
Inhalation techniques adopted within the Bormio Terme complex take advantage of the earthy waters containing sulfates, bicarbonates, alkalines that springs out naturally warm (36-41°C) from the mountain standing over the town.
Micronized showers: in this case the thermal water particles are larger than those of traditional aerosols and are driven under pressure directly into the nostrils. The result is an instant liquefaction of secretions in the nasal, post-nasal and throat regions. A cure directed towards all catarrhal ailments of nose, throat and sinusitis. The inhalations cure department provides 48 stations capable of supplying 1.000 cures per day.
Inhalations: a direct stream of hot pressurised water targeting possible ailments in the upper respiratory tract such as: rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, tracheitis.
Aerosol using flowing water: Thermal waters particularly finely broken down and thus capable of reaching the pulmonary alveolus. It's directed towards the cure of ailments within the lower respiratory tracts such as bronchitis.
Sonic Aerosol: an intermittent stream of sound waves at a frequency of 100 Hz gives the thermal water particles a very particular movement that allows them to reach the sinuses and the middle ear.
Ionic Aerosol: the thermal water particles, negatively charged, repel each other and thus remain particularly small. This allows them to penetrate to the lower airways, improving the resulting absorption in the mucosa and realising a potent anti-allergy effect.
