The Nalpharam fatigue-relieving centre on Chongchun Street in Pyongyang is a comprehensive welfare service base which is provided with rooms for foot reflective therapy and pelotherapy, hot bath by sulphur and ultrasonic waves and massage, and high- and low-temperature saunas.

The centre in a building area of 980 square metres offers fatigue-relieving services for instructors of the Korean Taekwon-Do Committee and players and coaches of Taekwon-Do clubs on a regular basis from January this year.

“As sportspersons often do physical training, they have too many physical exhaustion and fatigue. In particular, Taekwon-Doists often hurt their waist, cervical vertebrae and ankle. Our centre pays special attention to lessening their physical fatigue and improving the treatment efficacy on the parts injured in the training session,” said keeper Song Song Hui.

The hot bath by sulphur and ultrasonic waves is the most favourite haunt of sportspersons.

The hot bath, whose temperature is some 40℃, promotes the blood circulation of whole body, raises the elasticity of skin and softens skin. It is also effective for relieving the rigidity of joints including rheumatoid arthritis and curing the contracture of skin, chronic inflammatory diseases of muscles, tendons and bones and traumatic and operation sequela.

Players unanimously say when they expose themselves to ultrasonic waves while sweating as they soak their body in the hot water, the fatigue which has accumulated on muscles and nerves by heavy physical exhaustion disappears completely and they feel light.

Besides, the high-temperature sauna furnished with natural halite and agate is particularly popular with women players who are willing to preserve beautiful skins. The halite and agate generate anions to remove waste materials in the body, relieve fatigue and make skin glossy. They are effective for the treatment of arthropathy.

The centre offers pelotherapy, massage and high-frequency treatment.

“Once, I wrenched my ankle in the middle of training. So I took pelotherapy and massage treatment at the fatigue-relieving centre, which took the swelling ankle down in a few hours. The fatigue-relieving centre is good, indeed,” said Ro Kuk Hwa, a Taekwon-Do player.

The centre now renders service to citizens, as well as Taekwon-Do players.
