THE MEANING OF WELLNESS

The concept Wellness consists of the English words of well- being and fitness, so it shows clearly the the importance of well-beeing and a good physical constitution. For the it means everything around the beauty and the other ones rather see a diversion and relaxation aspect. Both is correct. Wellness, however, is rather a combination of the respective concepts. There are coincidences with wisdoms and teachings of past times, such as the teachings of Hippocrates or Sebastian Kneipp as well as the homoeopathy and Far Eastern wisdoms. Everyone deals with the preservation of the harmony of body, mind and soul.

THE ORIGINS OF WELLNESS

The Wellness (Spa) thought was developed by the American doctor H. L. Dunn at the end of the fifties. It is based on an integral analysis of man. One recognized that psycho social factors play an important role for our health. The harmony of body, mind and soul moved more and more into the limelight of the scientist and the society.

WELLNESS CRITERIA

Because the concept Wellness is not protected, there are different definitions about its meaning. The European Wellness (Spa) Union presents it, however, exactly with the so-called "Spa barometer". It contains the areas: physical fitness, intellectual movability, spiritual capacity, positive walkout, harmonious private life and harmony with nature.

WELLNESS (SPA) CHANCES AND POSSIBILITIES

Which applications, techniques or therapies make sense for a man can't be answered flatly. Every man has individual claims, needs and wishes at Wellness. He must learn to listen to himself and his needs to be able to begin the way to the harmony of body, mind and soul and therefore be able to design his integral health thought better.
