Radon galleries - a unique natural healing health center, situated in the Gastein Valley, 100 km from Salzburg. The power of nature relieves the pain and restores the body in a natural way. Every year, tourists from all over the world come here to experience the healing power of radon treatments.
Therapeutic effects of radon on the human body
Radon is an inert gas that is odorless and colorless. It enters the human body through the skin or respiratory tract. Radon improves metabolism and the cells’ self healing ability. With its help, begins the production of autogenous painkillers that have a positive effect on the whole body. After three hours radon is eliminated from the body.

Radon is especially effective in relieving the pain in patients with ankylosing spondylitis and significantly reduces their need for medication.

The uniqueness of Gastein's radon galleries
The unique combination of radon gas, air humidity and elevated temperature in the galleries contributes to the body's natural recovery. The goal of radon therapy is to activate the body's natural healing. After radon treatments, a significant improvement is visible in 80% of patients. Radon activates autogenous neurotransmitters that are responsible for suppressing inflammatory processes and encouraging the self-healing process.

As a result of gently dosed alpha radiation, a change occurs in the intensity and direction of the biochemical processes that trigger the mechanism for restoring damaged human tissues and organs. It is this radiation that contributes to the activation of the apoptosis process, which results in the release of TGF-Beta conductive substances that suppress inflammation.

Depending on the nature of the disease, it is recommended to have 8 - 12 visits to the healing galleries, within 2-3 weeks. After the therapy completion, pains are naturally relieved, the immune system is visibly boosted and the need for medication is reduced.
