Emeritus senior consultant of hotel Nové Lázně
The spa industry is an important part of modern medicine, which uses natural healing sources.
The spa industry in the 21st century has changed its character. In addition to the classical spa treatments in spas there has now started to be provided, what I would call ‘spa rehabilitation’. There are more and more guests with locomotive system problems. The highest increase is with guests after surgeries of locomotive apparatus. You know, when somebody has surgery of endoprosthesis of the hip or knee joint, he or she thinks that they can start to run like when they were young. It is not completely like that. The surgery is the most important part, but then the second step must follow – rehabilitation. And right here the potential of our spas are immense. So the 21st century is for spas the period of ‘spa rehabilitation’.
