Recommended for rheumatic and neurological conditions, recovery from bone surgery and breathing problems, the high sulphur water in Yverdon has therapeutic biochemical effects as well as beneficial minerals.
We have doctors specialising in rheumatology and sports medicine, as well as qualified physiotherapists to ensure that you are in the best possible hands.
The treatments on offer in our thermal centre must be tailored to each guest, as some conditions mean that some treatments cannot be used. This is why we require you to undertake a medical examination upon entry. This allows us to adapt your treatments according to your needs. This examination will be more effective and better tailored to your specific needs if we have a letter from the doctor in charge of your care, medical reports, recent blood test results and your x-ray history. Contact us for more information.

DIAfit centre: for diabetics
The Centre Thermal is a DIAfit centre. There is an onsite DIAfit accredited doctor and a monitor (a physiotherapist or sports trainer), as well as a diabetes medicine team.
DIAfit is a programme for patients with type 2 diabetes. It aims to allow them to start a physical activity while being monitored by a specialised multi-disciplinary team. It is designed both for those currently in work and retirees. An evaluation must be carried out by the DIAfit doctor before starting the programme. Encouraging physical activity forms part of comprehensive treatment of diabetes patients. Regular physical activity has beneficial effects on cardiovascular health and general well-being.
The DIAfit programme is offered under the supervision of the Swiss Society for Endocrinology and Diabetology (SSED) and is supported by the Swiss Diabetes Association (ASD).
