My spa treatment

Remember that a well-tolerated spa treatment has no side effects and should help reduce the use of medication.

The patient’s active participation, necessary for their treatment, allows us to ensure another health policy : health education through multi-disciplinary care (physical activities, diet and psychology)..

*Metabolic syndrome : what is it ?

This is a set of physiological signs that increase the risk of type-2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself, but a warning sign of health problems – sometimes serious – of which the sufferer may not always be aware. These warning signs include abdominal obesity, high blood triglycerides, chronic hypertension, low HDL cholesterol and high blood sugar. Metabolic syndrome is diagnosed when at least three of these risk factors are present, according to well-defined criteria. Although there may be hereditary causes at times, metabolic syndrome is normally linked, in the majority of cases, to living conditions (sedentary lifestyle, stress, unbalanced diet).

Metabolic syndrome is widespread, particularly in the United States, present in nearly one in two people over the age of 60.
It is on the rise and constitutes a real public health issue because it often opens the door to much more serious pathologies, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or strokes. It is also suspected to be linked to certain cancers: breast, prostate and colon. As a result of the therapeutic virtues of the thermal waters, but also through the opportunity it represents to break away from routine and the therapeutic education offered to the guests, Aulus’ spa therapy presents a crucial answer to this major public-health issue.

Through medical follow-ups, thermal treatments, the organisation of adapted physical activities and dietary education, Aulus spa therapies can be prescribed to overweight children and teenagers or those undergoing weight changes, with or without metabolic complications.
