The basis of all the success achieved at this spa is a thick deposit of peat, which gave rise to the Anenské mud spa.

Today adults and children are treated here for muscular-skeletal disease as well as neurological, gynaecological and skin complaints.

This is a guarantee that you’ll be receiving the highest standard of care in a special atmosphere of comfort and tranquillity. Lázně Bělohrad has focused for many years on the treatment of children. The children’s department deals with muscular-skeletal issues using special methods such as sensomotoric stimulation, the Vojta reflex method, breathing exercises and yoga. The staff at Lázně Bělohrad have also come up with some truly delightful wellness treats. For instance, let yourself be pampered with oriental procedures invented for Indonesian princesses – your body and face coated in exclusive creams containing 24-carat gold or with a caviar mix.
