Do you know, that there is a unique place where you can recover after major surgery a serious surgery? A place where without surgery or medications you can get rid of your pains caused by arthritis, gastrointestinal diseases or psychiatric issues? This place is called the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The standard of Balneology (treatment with thermal waters, mud, clay or peat) achieved by Czech and Slovak doctors is unsurpassed anywhere in the world. I know that German, French, Italian or Hungarian physicians may get insulted by this statement.
They will have to forgive me. I am convinced that their level of expertise in Natural Therapy do not match those achieved by the Czech or Slovak doctors. Balneological schools in the first three mentioned countries have the disadvantage of being in a rich country. Their population can afford to buy medications or go to the seaside to relax and warm up their joints. The Hungarians for centuries used specific heat of warm water to warm up their bodies in the thermal springs occurring in abundance around them. They did not need to (wonder) wander how to improve balneotherapy.
On the other hand the Czechs and Slovaks for a long time lived in relative poverty and could not afford medications or (to) pay physicians. They were more dependent on natural therapy for their problems and even now they prefer to use it whenever possible. Almost half the 15 million population have very little money and still take advantage of spa therapy, fully covered by medical insurance. Over the past few years an increasing numbers of well off foreign visitors are discovering the (wonders) wanders of Czech and Slovak Spas. Three weeks of therapy with full board on average costs around $ 3000 US (depending on the level of accommodation).
Now you should start studying the map and get familiar with the locations of the Czech and Slovak Spas. Find out which of them is best suited to treat and rehabilitate your specific problems. When you are finished reviewing the material you will complete your first and most important lesson about our spa therapy.
I am looking forward giving you further information of the most interesting Spa and Wellness Centers located in our countries.
