Wellness and selfness the Slovenian way
With their traditional practices, Slovenian health resorts have always been connected with the preservation and restoration of health. In the last few decades, their placement in the environment, natural factors and modern professional approach have also made them places for self-discovery. Wellness with pampering, relaxation and treatment programmes are supplemented by selfness programmes – selfness is a lifestyle which puts physical and mental health and good energy at the centre. Relax with wellness experiences, invigorate yourself with selfness discoveries.
Did you know?
To have a sense of oneself was the guiding principle of one of the oldest climatic health resorts in Slovenia. This resort was founded in Bled by a Swiss doctor, a naturopath called Arnold Rikli. In the middle of the 19th century, his guests walked barefoot on dew-covered grass to achieve better blood circulation.
Wellness. Healthy pampering.
In all Slovenian health resorts, romantic or beauty pampering, simple relaxation or the restoration and preservation of wellbeing with massages, baths and saunas can be marked by special stories.
What is your favourite way to achieve good wellbeing?
Everyone enjoys pampering in their own way. You can find relaxation in a bath or a sauna, beneficial massages, meditation in nature and plenty of other things in Slovenian spas and health resorts.
Massages, therapies, baths and pampering include specific local elements such as honey, forest berries, beer, sea algae, chocolate, herbs with healing properties and wild flowers. Experienced massage therapists are masters of age-old techniques and approaches originating in faraway lands.
Specially arranged sauna facilities offer a range of different options, from the renowned Finnish sauna to the Turkish steam bath or an infra-red sauna. Salt, crystal, Indian, Roman and colour therapy saunas and bio-saunas and laconiums are surprising. Don’t miss the special programmes offered in saunas.
Slovenian spas offer a number of forms of pampering for your wellbeing: the ritual of spinning air in saunas, the sounds of Tibetan bowls during massages and the Asian herbal ball compress massages.
The most beautiful green areas surrounding Slovenian spas and health resorts are often a great location for relaxation exercises, such as the unique laughter yoga, breathing and relaxation exercises on the seashore, barefoot walks on sensory trails and energy points.
Indian, Japanese, Thai, Chinese and other ancient approaches to massages, peeling treatments and exercise in nature are integrated into the services of all Slovenian health resorts. Furthermore, they also include meditation, detox and exercise programmes. A healthy approach to the self can also be found in schools dealing with a healthy lifestyle, weight loss and fasting.
In many spas you can hire poles for Nordic walking and learn how to do this activity on special trails with an instructor. You can also hire a bike and try out outdoor facilities for various activities that are available in the vicinity. Seven health resorts are in the vicinity of golf courses.
