Sanatorium “Laba” was built near the springs at the foot of the Caucasus mountains.
Initially, oil prospecting was carried out at the site of the sanatorium. It was back in 1959. However, instead of water, a hot water geyser hit from the ground. At first, the miracle attracted only local residents. They quickly arranged spontaneous balneological baths on a year-round basis at the site of the geyser eruption. However, soon the fame of the healing water spread far beyond the small town of Labinsk.
At the Institute of Physiotherapy, located in Sochi, an analysis of the composition of the waters was carried out. We found out that the water coming out of the ground is chloride-sodium iodine-bromine ortho-boric siliceous, has high salinity. The closest “relative” to Labin water will be a source located in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Sanatorium “Laba” began to function in 1971. Initially, it was quite small, specialized in mud-balneotherapy and could not boast of a wide range of different procedures. However, as people learned about the sanatorium and came to it from all over Russia, not only the territory grew, but also the services of Laba. Scientists studied the composition of water in more detail, expanding the recommendations for its use, which made it possible to add more procedures to the list. And all this in order to restore the health of people, to restore their efficiency, strength and vitality.
Today “Laba” is a full-fledged sanatorium that can accommodate up to 430 people at a time. On the territory of the resort, they use not only mud-balneotherapy, but also modern procedures, devices to restore health. On the basis of the sanatorium, you can not only swim in natural thermal springs, but also visit a bath complex, a water park. The sanatorium has its own diagnostic complex, so it can carry out not only treatment, but also diagnostics.
The sanatorium has two swimming pools – two indoor and one open. The total area of the pools is 4764 square meters.
Not only thermal springs are included in the health-improving base of the sanatorium, but also:
• mud therapy, based on the use of the Tambukan mud of the silt-sulphide type (mud has an anti-inflammatory, resorbing effect);
• climatotherapy – the climate at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains is delightful, ranging from mild winters to excellent weather conditions throughout the year (the number of sunny days reaches 280 per year);
• physiotherapy treatments, including various types of massage, physiotherapy exercises, laser therapy and many other procedures.
Treatment at the Laba sanatorium will be useful for people suffering from cardiovascular, neurological, respiratory (excluding tuberculosis), gastroenterological diseases. The waters of thermal springs also help in the treatment of skin pathologies, diseases of the urological and gynecological spectrum, endocrinological diseases, and lesions of the musculoskeletal system.
Indoor pools: 300 rubles / hour
Outdoor pool and water park “Labushka”: 500 rubles per day
