MEDICAL & HEALTH CONCEPTS
This category is aimed not only at outstanding beauty and mind concepts offered by medical & health resorts, but also at holistic therapies and non-invasive treatments on the threshold of medicine.
MEDICAL & HEALTH CONCEPTS – as body treatments
The awards are given to treatments that offer balanced healing and/or optimise beauty. The goal is to transport the skin, the mind and the entire body into a more aesthetic and healthy state, both visually and energetically. The treatment should be in the tradition of proven therapeutic treatments, or should boast an innovative, pioneering approach, appropriate ingredients and a particularly advanced technology that offers lasting support for the proper functioning of mind and body.
Effectiveness: The treatment can be for the face or body, and is distinguished by the selection of products and/or their innovative use. The objective is not only to provide noticeable relaxation, but also to solve problems related to different skin requirements. This includes, for example, improving the skin’s radiance, tightening the skin and delivering special revitalisation.
Holistic approach: The concept must correspond to the holistic approach of the spa philosophy. With their appealing aromas, texture and professional usage, the luxurious spa products offer an extraordinary spa experience.
Welcome and relaxation ritual in the spa: Here too, it is important that there be a distinctive approach, characterised for example by the provision of healthy snacks (such as tea or fruit) or by starting off with an indulgent gesture (e.g. a foot bath or massage) that is instantly recognisable.
MEDICAL & HEALTH CONCEPTS – as a resort and institute
Location: Be it an extraordinary medical day-spa concept or a luxurious health resort, this category is aimed at exclusive and holistic health concepts that take a life-changing approach. In addition to professional check-ups, analyses and individual medical support, there should also be a programme of coaching and inspirational workshops, readings and courses to help keep mind and body in balance. The aim is to actively fashion practical lifestyles that are both aware and sustainable, in order to bring health, well-being and performance into harmony.
Design and philosophy: The five-star establishment features modern architecture that is also practical, making use of high-quality materials and excellent contemporary design. The medical treatments are provided in an ambience that is far removed from the clinical atmosphere found in a hospital. The feel-good character is reinforced by appealing lighting, music and scent concepts that help guests staying there to leave their everyday lives behind and undertake a (shorter or longer) journey into a world of calm, inspiration, healing and relaxation.
Spa & medical area: In addition to a range of relaxation, massage and beauty booths, there are also medical examination rooms and inviting quiet zones. Outdoor and fitness areas would be an ideal supplement to this.
Medical & health programme: Medical diagnostics and therapies supplement the extraordinary programme on offer for the body and mind and the range of holistic coaching opportunities. These offer new stimuli that have a sustainable impact on everyday life. Holistic treatments and a portfolio of problem-solving programmes (including anti-ageing, detox, sleep therapy and anti-cellulite) should be part of the standard range of services, while a team of excellently trained doctors and specialists and the use of special product lines is also a must. Furthermore, the resort should offer exclusive retreats and guest experts from the fields of yoga, nutrition, lifestyle, meditation, energy work and anti-burnout.
Spa cuisine: This should satisfy the highest gourmet standards. Furthermore, the menu and cuisine should feature modern nutrition concepts with whole foods and personalised diets that take individual dietary needs and intolerances into account.
