Combining the benefits of thermal spa water, nutritional guidance and targeted physical activity, the personalised 18-day course of spa treatments offered in the thermal resort of Brides-les-Bains will help you to find your dietary balance and a healthy lifestyle leading to sustainable weight loss.

The recently refurbished 2,400m² thermal spa centre welcomes you this year between March 25th to November 02nd 2024.

Slimming spa treatments

To help you lose a few pounds and keep them off, courses of slimming spa treatments approach weight loss from multiple angles: the treatments themselves (with increased benefits due to the use of thermal water), physical activity, and healthy eating.


Reimbursed by your Health Insurance Provider when prescribed by a GP, the 18-day course of slimming spa treatments (DT: Digestive Tract) in Brides-les-Bains will be a significant boost to help you achieve your weight loss goal.

The “Slimming programme” – which will also help you to adopt new, healthy lifestyle habits – comprises 72 treatments (4 per day) as well as a spa water drink treatment using Brides-les-Bains thermal water.

The springs at Brides-les-Bains and in the village of Salins-les-Thermes a short distance away, have been renowned for centuries for their ability to combat excess weight.

In addition to their slimming properties, thermal waters provide other benefits to those following a course of spa treatments. Prescribed as a spa water drink treatment for their laxative, diuretic and appetite-suppressing effects, they have a direct impact on the hepatic and digestive systems and on intestinal transit. Used as part of balneotherapy treatments, thermal waters energise the body and stimulate blood circulation and the lymphatic system.

Draining massages firm up and refine the silhouette by helping to eliminate cellulite frequently found around the hip and thigh area.

To get you heading towards your ideal weight in the right way, in Brides-les-Bains, slimming treatments are combined with gentle sports activity, conferences and cookery workshops offering nutritional advice.
