Therapy for children

Health preserving and musculoskeletal treatments, developmental therapy for children. Therapy packages with special diet, therapeutic gymnastics, physiotherapy treatments, drinking cure… and with the beneficial effects of the medicinal water of Kehida.

We can assist children’s recovery with our immensely experienced team of medical specialists, qualified medicinal water, well-equipped therapy facilities and physiotherapists.

In the Adventure bath and spa of Kehida Termál, the radon-free medicinal water can also be used for curing and developing the youngest. The launch of our children’s therapy, which is unique in Hungary, was preceded by lengthy professional negotiations. Our programme, which has already helped 150 ill children, started in July 2013 following the medical specialists’ and special needs teachers’ reports and after creating the therapy packages. The therapy consists of three pillars: the medicinal water of Kehidakustány, conductive pedagogy based on the Pető-method, and the family-friendly, peaceful environment.

Conductive pedagogy deals primarily with those whose central nervous system damaged before or during childbirth, as well as later, in childhood or adulthood. We try to attract kids’ attention, develop their motor and mental skills and encourage the acquisition of skills for self-sufficiency.

Our aim is to teach handicapped children the movements required for basic life-style, or at least make them a little easier. We set up a personalised therapy for every child. The sessions performed in thermal water and the massages help relax the muscles; therefore, exercises carried out on the ground will be easier to do. Usually, children with CP come to us, but the therapy can help in case of scoliosis, flatfeet, muscular dystrophy and behavioural disorders. In the hotel’s family-friendly environment, the whole family can feel like being on a holiday and have positive experiences, which can promote development.
