A sensational path for bare-foot walking and a fitness park is now open in Dudince spa in the vicinity of the Smaragd spa house. These are not meant only for spa visitors but to the wider public for free.

“The sensational path for bare-foot walkers is a relaxing activity with a positive impact on people’s health,” said Andrea Petrušová, spokesperson of the spa, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Walking with bare feet on a particular surface of the path, such as sand, stones, wood, cones, grass or bark gives the body a feeling of balance and has a positive impact.

Fitness park, too

“Thanks to bare-foot walking and contact with particular parts of the path, the stimulation of many nerve-endings occur and the body gains many positive perceptions and experiences,” Petrušová said, as quoted by TASR.

Bare-foot walking is indicated for patients with sudden brain stroke, disease of the locomotor system, flat feet, stability disorders, cardiovascular diseases or as prevention against these diseases.

There is also a fitness park with eight exercise machines to strengthen muscles and improve motor activity with easy exercises.
