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

Flower Power

Those who do not only like their food delicious-looking but also healthy, should definitely include flowers in their recipes. Not only are the colorful accessories good for our immune system, they can even lower your cholesterol level. Try yoghurt with flaxseed and fresh lavender flowers the next time.


From A to Zink

The micronutrient zinc helps against anxiety and depression. Your diet usually covers the daily requirement, though it is also available as a dietary supplement in the form of tablets. Food that contains particularly much zink is red meat and grain.

Fascination Fascias

Back pain and immobility are symptoms of glued fasciae. To prevent this from happening, you should exercise sufficiently every day and avoid permanent stress. Fitness studios offer fascia training for this purpose. However, you can also roll off comfortably at home with a so-called fascia roll.
