Euronews' Sergio Cantone says: "Visitors, locals and the health-conscious can experience a very peculiar therapy based on a special kind of oil, the Naftalan oil."
The oil contains physiologically active substances and is used for health treatments.
Dilber Kazimova, head doctor Garabag Hotal, says: "Naftalan is a special kind of oil that comes naturally from the earth. Unlike regular oil, it is not combustible. It is rich with Naftene carbohydrates, which produces a painkiller, an anti-inflammatory and it also treats musculoskeletal and skin diseases.
This particular oil is very difficult to find elsewhere, so Naftalan is the only place where one can find this treatment.
