Health promotion & Wellness

Health is our most important asset. Many of us have long been convinced of this. But while we have long regarded health as something given, a major rethink is now taking place. More and more people suddenly no longer take their health for granted. It is becoming something that we want to actively protect and promote.

So much for the intention. Implementation usually comes to a halt when it involves effort and inconvenience. When it comes to health, this obstacle can be avoided. Wellness in its definition as “being well and enjoying” is the answer. Here too, it is a matter of becoming active and changing habits. But this with enjoyment. No sporting peak performances, strict nutritional plans or hours of meditation are required. Rather, wellness is a lifestyle that supports body, mind and soul in the best possible way. 

What is health promotion? What is prevention?

Prevention means the measures that are intended to prevent the occurrence of another, undesirable condition. Prevention can be found in very different areas. Health promotion includes all measures aimed at maintaining health and averting illness. True to the motto: 

Better prevent than cure!

Prevention is always better than cure - this was the principle of Ayurveda doctors centuries ago. They were even only paid if their patients remained healthy - and not for curing the sick.

While it has been somewhat neglected in the meantime, today the concept of prevention to maintain health is becoming more popular again. More and more people are realising that ultimately only they can take responsibility for their own health. The Wellness lifestyle shows how this can be done with fun and enjoyment.

Health & Healing in the Wellness Hotel

If you want to lay the foundation stone for your health during your holiday, then a wellness hotel from the Wellness Hotels & Resorts is just the right place for you. Depending on the focus of the hotel, offers for health promotion are

  • Ayurveda
  • Kneipp
  • Thalasso
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM
  • Massage & Physiotherapy
  • Medical Wellness
  • Felke-Therapy
  • Detox
  • and others


All these concepts promise wellness with effect. It is important to get involved and to continue the new insights and habits in everyday life. The preparations in the wellness hotel make this easier. 

What can I do to promote my health?

Anyone who wants to promote their health will at best always do something equally well in the four wellness areas of nutrition, exercise, relaxation and social emotional support. The hotel staff are happy to help with the concrete implementation.

Our Health & Healing-Tips for you

Honestly healthy

If you tell fewer lies, you will feel better stay healthy. This was the result of a US study. Honest people that also stay away from smaller lies have less psychological and physical symptoms and on top of that have more social contacts and a better self-perception.

Long Life

A Taiwan study shows that moving for just fifteen minutes a day will rise your life expectancy up to three years. This low level of activity even is enough to decrease the risk of getting a heart attack, cancer and diabetes. So: Lots of activity for a long life!

Holiday at home

Sometimes a holiday trip is simply not possible, but spending the holiday at home can be just as beautiful and relaxing as spending it abroad. To enable your body to switch to recovery mode in the best possible way, it is important that your days are different from your everyday life. Get a good night's sleep, treat yourself to an extensive and cosy breakfast and think about programme points for the day. Of course, you can also record these with your camera, because at home you can collect just as many wonderful moments that you will gladly remember later.
