The spa water of Casciana is officially named Acqua Mathelda. It comes from a spring at a constant natural temperature of 35.7°C.
The waters belong to the family of the calcium sodium bicarbonates, with a natural content of mineral salts so combined as to be distinguished by their particular effectiveness. Used since time immemorial to combat arthrosis, rheumatism and sciatica, in the course of time its uses have been extended to modern motor rehabilitation therapies and cardiovascular and respiratory problems. The therapeutic mud, when soaked for a long time in the thermal waters, in fact acquires its contents and curative powers.
Its composition, particularly rich in salts and carbon dioxide, promote the dilation of the blood vessels, speeding up the passage of blood through the veins and improving the circulation in general. If inhaled, it improves the breathing and is especially effective in the treatment of sinusitis, rhinosinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis and tracheitis. Furthermore, it reinforces the immune system in children.
Finally, there are the beneficent effects of drinking the spa water. A glass of it stimulates the gastro-enteric apparatus, which is to say the intestine, aiding digestion and combating liver-poisoning.
A hydro-massage or a manual massage form the natural completion of a correct, complete thermal treatment. When the body, heated to 45° in the thermal mud, has exceeded the 36 degrees of the immersion in the Roman bath, it is ready to receive the jet of water which stimulates the circulation. At the Terme di Casciana the force of the jet is combined with the skill of a masseur to ensure a truly special therapy.
The result is an extremely relaxing and natural action which must appeal to those seeking relief from the problems arising from everyday life. The natural colour, particularly appreciable by immersion in the thermal pools, together with the treatments carried out on the face and body, make it possible to retrieve personal equilibrium and the taste for new pleasures after even a short stay at the baths.
A genuine miracle of nature, a gift that comes to us from those parts of her that are never completely examined and from possibilities that will never be completely discovered and explored.
The large outdoor spa pool possesses a wealth of the most prodigious technologies which enable one to spend entire days between immersions and the pleasure of lying out on the soft turf of the surrounding gardens.
500 square metres of continually renewed spa water and its constant depth of 1.3 metres makes it the ideal place for single persons, couples or whole families, not least because the mild climate of Casciana and the light summer breeze make it easy to relax completely, or simply get a tan while using the comfortable deck-chairs.
What is offered is a genuine balneotherapy which in addition to the possibility of enjoying a relaxing environment serves also to prevent the maladies typical of advancing age while creating a better relationship both with your body and mind.
The covered indoor spa pool is used chiefly for highly professional activities concerned with motor rehabilitation, organized in small groups and under the vigilant eye of the rehabilitation therapists.
Persons who have suffered injuries of various kinds, or who have undergone surgery for the replacement of a joint, find that the spa water helps to speed up the full recovery of their motor functions.
In the evening hours this pool is also used for wellbeing and prevention activities such as water gymnastics, muscular activity in water etc.
Especially exciting is the watercourse at Terme Villa Borri, a thermal stream running in the open air as far as the old farm of that name.
