Balneotherapy has a long tradition in many European countries, and is an integral part of the health care system

Balneotherapy, which uses local natural resources such as natural healing water, peloids, gases, and climatic conditions for treatment, is only available at medical spa facilities that are recognized and regulated by state authorities. The treatments offered at these facilities have been thoroughly researched and approved by scientists and medical doctors.

Our members offer a wide range of services: physical activity and rehabilitation, healthy nutrition, relaxation and personal mental activities that enrich the traditional tourist experience in green destinations or in historical spa towns.
