Spa Piešťany - "Health and relaxation for everyone”

Dear friends,

You have certainly experience with how much we love our cars. At least once a year we take them to a garage to let them inspect thoroughly, we regularly clean them and buy for them more or less useful accessories. This is because we know that thanks to a proper care and early intervention in case of a technical problem the car can reliably serve us for a long time and without loosing its value. Many of us, however, do not have such an attitude toward our own health. We are not willing to invest into something that is not reimbursed by the health insurance companies.

Unhealthy lifestyle, too much technology in the world starting with comfortable means of transport, equipment to facilitate any manual work, elevators, escalators and ubiquitous electronic entertainment leave us less and less room for physical exercise. Research shows that many children cannot even walk backwards without falling – so poorly are their motor skills developed.

If we add to it the unhealthy nutrition, stress and hustle and bustle we will come to a conclusion that it all has such an impact upon our health as the salt and rust has on the body of our car. Therefore, if we want to maintain good health and increase quality of our life for a long period, we have to develop our personal initiative – responsibly live a healthy life, but also take care of prevention even though that its coverage on the part the health insurance companies is decreasing.

For all those who would like to do something for their health “on their own”, i.e. without prescriptions and vouchers from the health insurance company, spa and spa facilities in Slovakia and abroad provide their services. In contrast to the rapidly growing market of wellness stays, you can find there relax, comprehensive professional medical and physiotherapeutic care.

For example, the spa stays can help people with musculoskeletal problems and rheumatism with managing their problems and can contribute to a long-term stabilisation of their health. During their stay in the spa, such clients discover joy from their exercises and get healthy eating habits.

Spa Piešťany confirmed the high quality of its services

The European Spas Association (ESPA) represents interests of over 1200 spa cities in Europe. The European mark of quality in spa industry is particularly important for better orientation of foreign clients because in each country exist different requirements on hygiene, safety and infrastructure. Since 2006, common evaluation criteria for obtaining of the EuropeSpa Med certificate are applied on the whole European continent.

Spa Piešťany belong among the biggest providers of spa services in Europe and in 2011 they decided to undergo this extensive inspection. Experts from ESPA examined more than 1000 points in catering, accommodation, spa treatments, swimming pools, human resources and management. It turned out that the Hotel Thermia Palace is one of the best European spa service providers.

On 7th February 2013, Spa Piešťany passed inspection audit during which the ESPA auditors again recorded improvement in quality of provided services. Spa Piešťany again confirmed their traditionally high level of quality and good motivation of employees. „If this goes on, Spa Piešťany are on the best way to become leaders in the quality in Europe”, stated Dr. Kurt von Storch, EuropeSpa chief auditor.

Mrs. Urbanková, Quality Manager of the Spa Piešťany: „Audit of EuropeSpa is one of the most detailed tests of quality in which I participated so far. It moved us closer to our objective to become the leader in the international market.“

The luxurious natural soap Sulthera also retains all therapeutical effects of the Piešťany sulphur mud. The rich sulphuruous content stimulates the skin, considerably reduces inflammation of the skin, does not dry it and has a healing effect.
