Carbonic acid bath is performed with the use of water that is saturated with CO2 in a saturation device. The bath is performed at the temperature of 31-340C. It initially causes the feeling of cold, and then after ca.40-60 seconds the feeling of warmth arrives. On the patient's skin, some bubbles of carbon dioxide appear, which burst after they reach a certain size. The process creates a delicate feeling of being tickled. While being treated, the patient should avoid making any movements.
