Managed by certified healthcare practitioners, these specialized centers offer both aesthetic services and more complex health treatments.

Medical spas offer numerous benefits, including the expertise of medical professionals and access to advanced treatments and technology.

Whether you’re looking for a detox or a comprehensive medical check, you need to start by checking if the medical spa actually offers the service(s). You may also want to look at whether it includes an initial consultation, any information on the programme or procedure, the equipment used and how many sessions you may need.


Qualified, experienced practitioners are non-negotiable.The treatments offered at medical spas require specialist knowledge and training and all good spas will share this background information. If you’re thinking about a medical spa experience further afield, speaking to an independent travel agent who specialises in health and medical travel will give you peace of mind and take the stress out of booking.


It’s helpful to have a clear idea of what you’re able to spend before you start looking for a medical spa. It’s always worth asking about options before booking as many spas have payment plans, seasonal discounts or promotional offers.


There’s nothing more restorative than a medical spa experience in a far-flung destination. The change of scenery can work wonders whether you’re happier listening to waves lapping on the shore, or want a treat for the senses with snow capped mountains and crisp, clean air.


Don’t be afraid to ask questions. A good medical spa will be happy to share their hygiene and infection control policy. Knowing that the spa you choose has put proper protocols in place is incredibly reassuring and can make the overall experience a lot more relaxing and enjoyable.


Hearing from other people’s first-hand experience can be vital in gauging whether a Medical Spa is right for you. Check online for reviews which offer an (unfiltered) snapshot of people’s experience, or get in touch with our Travel Experts who can share their thoughts.

According to the Director of Spa & Wellbeing at the prestigious Grand Resort Bad Ragaz in Switzerland, Hans-Peter Veit, having a spa alone is no longer a guaranteed way to attract guests to a hotel. However, a well-established medical spa with a diverse range of high-quality services can be a compelling draw for guests looking for a holistic health and wellness experience.

Quality is paramount in a medical spa. Success hinges on having the best therapists and medical experts on staff. Additionally, flexibility and individualised care are crucial factors that make a medical spa stand out. Each guest’s unique needs and preferences should be taken into account to provide a tailored experience.

Detox, Weight Loss & Longevity packages are among the most sought-after offerings, closely followed by comprehensive check-up programmes. For individual treatments, personal training ranks as the top choice, but there’s also a growing interest in treatments aimed at emotional balance and well-being.

A visit to a luxury medical spa is an excellent choice for individuals with limited free time who wish to combine a luxury holiday experience with a healthcare programme. Many guests opt to visit a medical spa with their loved ones, making it a unique opportunity to prioritise health and well-being while enjoying quality time together.
