What is medical Spa & Wellness Management?
Medical Spa's combine medical applications, which are normally conducted in a medical practice, with the experience of a day spa.
While Western medicine primarily treats symptoms, it is complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that has helped connect medicine with spa or wellness providers. CAM treatments and cures can include chiropractic, acupuncture, herbal teas and lotions, dietary changes, water cures, as well as meditation.
Some hotel operators are establishing themselves as spa destinations that are primarily medically oriented and have the best specialist staff. The guests stay there for some time, in order to recover for instance after a cancer treatment, to detoxify the body, to optimize the metabolism or to strive for a medical weight loss. To properly integrate these medical applications into spa settings, well-trained professionals and managers are needed.
