Inahlations, aerosol and nasal showers are held in the morning, as well as wraps, numerous external applications (medicate, hot, cold, etc), intravenous therapy, ozone therapy and hyperthermia.
After lunch, usually around 14.00, a yarrow wrap on the liver is brought into the room; it aids digestion and rest.
