Massage for pregnant women
Unfortunately, no thermal bath in Budapest offers pregnancy massage in the baths to avoid any potential medical complications. Even if you are in absolutely perfect health condition with your baby, the bath management cannot take the risk of unexpected complications / urgent resolutions to keep you and your baby safe from harm. We are sorry that we cannot spoil you when you would deserve the most.
In a similar vein, there are several pools in the baths which contain hot water (between 33 and 40 degrees Celsius, the upper end of which, is not recommended for pregnant mothers.
In short, massage treatment is not available for pregnant moms in Gellert Spa.
Hot thermal water is not suitable for pregnant moms.
During pregnancy please keep consulting with your doctor whenever you intend to visit public baths, shared pools. Pregnant women are kindly asked to consult with their doctor /OBGYN if they can bathe in the thermal waters in Budapest too, and what – if any – precautions they need to make before entering the pools.
All visits to the baths and its facilities are at the responsibility of visitors, including pregnant mothers. We apologise for any potential inconvenience. You will find that some private spas do offer pregnancy treatments in Budapest, even if not the major thermal baths.
Are you open as normal tomorrow or are there reduced hours for the public holiday?
thank you for your interest. The opening times on August 20 in Gellert Spa: 6 am – 8 pm.
Have a nice day.
My husband and I are coming to Budapest in Aug 2020. I love your hotel and the waters. Will will want a double bed and then tickets for the spa. I am also interested in the massages, but figure that I can do that on a different day or time.
Would you please send me an estimate of what it would cost for Aug 20-22 (check out), 2 tickets to the spa?
I also want to know if you transfer guests to the river boats as we will be starting a cruise on Aug. 22.
Thank you so much for your attention to this.
we have contacted you via email.
In the 45 mins harmony aroma massage, does this treatment include the head and face?
only the 60 min version of the Harmony Massage includes face toner. We recommend you book the 60 mi massage if you prefer the face treatment too.
Hope we can welcome you at Gellert Spa Baths!
Dear Gellért Team, we are 3 ladies coming to visit the spa on Friday 29th November and would like to all have the 60 minute harmony massage at the same time. Please can you help me to arrange this as the booking form only lets me book a double, not a triple massage. We would like it at 12pm or 1pm or even 2pm (as you can accommodate us) but together or as close together as possible please. We would like the changing cabin and bath tickets too please. I look forward to hearing from you by email.
Thank you for your comment. To save some money, we would recommend buying a Double and a Single massage separately (so 3 massages), or 3 Single massages. In the comment section (when booking) please mention that you are together, so we will try our best to accommodate your request.
All massage tickets include entry to the Spa, so you can stay as long as you wish (before and/or after your massage appointment), and also a cabin as well.
I hope this help.
I need a deep tissue massage to help with a painful muscle spasm I have in my back. Which do you recommend
Thank you for your question.
Royal Thermal Massage -either 45 or 60min treatment – would be recommended. In case of the Thermal Massage the therapists apply energetic and dynamic movements to ease the tension in the muscles, and reduce the pain in the body. We also recommend a quick consultation about your condition with the therapist upon arrival.
