Wellness tourism is an activity which involves travelling with the specific goal of making one’s health better through various activities, either physical or spiritual, through the practice of alternative and complementary medicine. This is an extremely large market, bringing billions of dollars worldwide and it is expected to grow even further in the following years.
Our potential clients have a large choice of places that they can visit for wellness tourism; however, some countries have been working their way to the top of the wellness industry, and here they are.
India has always been a place of mysticism and exploration of one’s inner self. It is no surprise then that their most popular branch of medicine is ayurvedic medicine. This kind of medicine believes in the holistic approach to your body and well-being, meaning that you have to keep everything in balance for your health to be optimal. Mind, body and soul. With this in mind, their approach to medicine relies on relaxation, massages, yoga sessions and specific medicines and remedies, usually made of herbs and minerals.
Aside from the treatments, you will be able to enjoy the beauty and variety of India. From ancient temples palaces over crowded bazaars to modern, high-tech skyscrapers, India has it all.
Having a history that goes back as far as the Western civilizations, the Chinese have always sought to respect tradition and their ancestors, and this is what they bring to medicine, as well. Chinese traditional medicine is a group of various practices which are, just like ayurveda, holistic in its approach. These practices include, but are not limited to, different forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture practices, massages, exercises and various diets. The Chinese believe in the flow of qi, which, when interrupted, causes illness to occur. These practices are oriented towards restoring the flow of qi through the body’s meridians, thus restoring one’s health.
Medicine with over 2,000 years of tradition is not the only thing that will make you love China, though. There are numerous things to visit and experience while you are there. China has completely opened its doors to the world, and with its rich history, there are a lot of new experiences to be had here.
Czech Republic, or Czechia as it has become known in the last few years, is a country that is widely known for its spas and wellness centers. One of the must-visit spa centers in the world is in Karlovy Vary, perhaps the most famous one in the world. It, and all the other spas in Czechia, is known for its beautiful architecture, lovely gardens, thrilling nature surrounding it and peace and quiet that is not disturbed even by flocks of visitors and tourists pouring in throughout the year, as it is beautiful throughout the year.
The Czech people have been in the wellness resort business for a long time and know very well how to treat people who choose to come here for a retreat. The overall beauty of this country is only a part of the reason why you should come here. Personalized wellness programs, staff available throughout the day, as well as a number of natural springs with various minerals should be the rest of it.
Croatia is a relative new-comer to the world of medical and wellness tourism. However, with its wondrous beaches (some claim them to be the most beautiful in all of Europe), its new health facilities, and the relatively cheap service, Croatia is staking a claim to be among the top destinations in Europe.
Croatia offers a wide range of medical services to its tourists; however, they are mostly famous for their rehabilitation centers. If you have a need of therapies for bone and joint problems, therapies for muscle rehabilitation, and even for immobility, then you should look no farther than Croatia. These therapies, along with spas scattered around the country, make it ideal for injury rehabilitation.
Aside from rehabilitation, Croatia offers a variety of choices when it comes to sight-seeing and fun. The country is a combination of beautiful beaches and intriguing country-side, while Zagreb, Split and historic Dubrovnik are the urban centers of the country.
Choosing a wellness pack that is good for you does not only come down to what type of treatment you need and what kind of problems you have. It’s much more than that. It’s about the hospitality, quality service and infrastructure, natural beauty of the place you are visiting and the amount of new experiences that you can have. In all of these, the countries listed above are the cream of the crop.
