Benessere & Salute! Relaxing comes naturally in Italy: a country with many health and wellbeing options. Surrender yourself to the practice of Dolce far niente – the art of doing nothing. Enjoying whatever life brings; living in the moment. Italy is home to many thermal water springs, which have been used for their therapeutic properties for centuries. One of the most famous thermal water springs in Italy is located in the town of Abano Terme, Montegrotto or Saturnia. The thermal water is known for its high mineral content and is believed to have healing properties for a variety of ailments such as arthritis, respiratory problems and skin conditions. The spa resorts developed specialised treatments using the unique fango or mud. Take your health and wellbeing holiday at beautiful nature destinations, or close to major cities like Verona, Rome or Venice. Italy offers huge diversity when it comes to health and relaxation. The Mediterranean climate and health-promoting effects of the sea – and all it brings with it, such as algae extracts, therapeutic clay and of course, the famous Fango – help to alleviate various health issues. Italy has it all!
Italy is home to many thermal water springs, as the country is located on the boundary between the African and Eurasian tectonic plates, which has led to the formation of many thermal springs throughout the country. Each spring has its own unique properties and minerals and offer a range of health benefits. Thermal water springs are a great way to relax and unwind while enjoying the therapeutic benefits of the natural mineral-rich water. Italy is home to numerous mineral springs that are centuries old. Northern Italy features well known destinations such as the Euganean Hills, with Abano Terme and Montegrotto Terme. A little less known but just as charming are spa resorts and mineral springs in Tuscany, including Montecatini or Terme di Saturnia. Another region, Emilia-Romagna, has Levico Terme, Monteortone Terme and Bagno di Romagna.
Given all of those natural springs, it isn’t surprising that Italy has a long tradition of Fango therapy. Fango combats inflammation and aids conditions affecting the joints. Fango (or mud) promotes good circulation, relaxes the muscles and relieves joint pain. The Italian word Fango translates as ‘mud’. The mud itself is a mixture of clay and organic matter, such as algae, which is heated by thermal waters from volcanic springs under the ground, the reason why the mud is so full of minerals. The Fango is unique to Italy, and the mineral composition differs per thermal spring. In a traditional Fango treatment, hot fango (approx. 38 – 42°C) is applied to the skin. The mud feels pleasant and is relaxing. It is rinsed off after 30 – 45 minutes and is followed by a hydrotherapy bath. A massage could be the finishing touch or a dip in the thermal pools.

A medical spa is a hotel or resort that combines traditional spa services with medical procedures to provide a comprehensive approach to health, wellbeing and beauty. The difference between a ‘normal’ health resort and a medical spa, is that a medical spa is supervised by a medical director. Medical spas typically offer a variety of treatments and services, including impressive, technology-based treatments to get a true understanding of your health and wellbeing, through a variety of medical tests that can reveal which treatments, activities and nutrition would be most beneficial for you. Apart from those medical tests, a medi-spa also offers a wide range of traditional spa treatments such as massages or facials. Some medi-spas offer cosmetic treatments, such as injectables, laser treatments and other cosmetic treatments. A medical spa is always supervised by a medical director who is a licensed physician. The director is responsible for overseeing the medical and spa treatments, ensuring that all treatments are performed safely and that all staff members are properly trained and licensed. The medical director may also be involved in developing treatment plans, performing medical consultations and overseeing the use of medical-grade equipment.
Some resorts specialises in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Centuries old, this health philosophy addresses the root cause of ailments and disease instead of tackling the symptoms alone. In addition, the doctors and therapists draw on western knowledge, methods and medicines.TCM is one of the oldest forms of medicine or medical science in the world. Despite its age, TCM has always acknowledged the role of stress. TCM considers stress to be the main cause of many illnesses. This makes TCM a particularly apt method for resolving modern-day stress-related issues and problems, such as tension, anxiety, sleep problems, digestive issues, obesity, etc. Examining these from a Chinese medicine perspective, they can be eliminated at the deepest level. And what better time for it than on a health holiday? You’ll stay at a luxury health or wellness resort, swathed in peace and quiet, relaxation and comfort. This gives you the time and space you need to focus on the treatment of your complaints and ailments. A Traditional Chinese Medicine wellness holiday will give your health a great boost.
