It is worth visiting to be offered a chance to enjoy fitness again as soon as possible.
The Therapeutic Rehabilitation Facility MEDYK in Jantar is a place where every guest is treated individually. The objective of MEDYK’s personnel is simple – to set the patient on his feet in the most effective way and painlessly. A visitor who crosses the MEDYK threshold is at first directed to a nurse.

Therefore, the entire process of rehabilitation is implemented in the most efficient manner.

The Therapeutic Rehabilitation Facility MEDYK in Jantar proposes a wide range of procedures – namely, kinesiotherapy, hydrotherapy, thermotherapy, ultrasounds, cryotherapy, massages.
The procedures of hydrotherapy include first of all whirlpool massages applied to legs and arms and the spine. In addition, the patients take advantage of an extremely pleasant procedure applied to the whole body performed in a spa tube. The whirlpool massages improve blood circulation, warm the patient up and ventilate, and, finally, improve mobility of their joints. To come back to fitness one should do gymnastics in the pool and take massages in jacuzzi. Finally, hydrojet – a massaging water bed – provides the patient with complete relaxation.
Apart from classic compresses with mud, the Therapeutic Rehabilitation Facility MEDYK in Jantar applies ozokerytotherapy, as well. This method relies on compresses made from natural wax which is known for its richness in minerals (iron, manganese, magnesium). They give pain relief and provide anti-inflammatory effect; they also stimulate the regenerative processes of the skin. Similarly to the mud, they extremely warm up, and that is why the tissues and muscles become relaxed, and – in result thereof – nourished.
Healing massages, individual exercises with a physio-therapist and special procedures are performed in separate treatment rooms, including, among others, boa massage (in the sleeves for the limbs), lymphatic drainage, electrotherapy, magneto-therapy, ultrasounds, local cryotherapy with nitrogen or local laser therapy.
The patients also use a steam bath, dry and infrared saunas and gym room, where they have a possibility to do exercises in a group.
The visitors may also take advantage of a pool, salt cave and cryo-room which are available in Neptun Centre nearby, being the other branch of the facility.
