Spa and wellness in Romania

Illnesses treatment

Started by Romans and unique in Europe, today Romania’s 70 natural spas provide relief for many medical disorders and illnesses including rheumatism, endocrine, kidney, liver, respiratory, heart, stomach and nervous diseases as well as nutrition, metabolism and gynaecological disorders.

Wellness vacations

Have become increasingly a “must” for active individuals without specific health problems but willing to care for their health, to disconnect from daily stress, and “recharge their batteries” during short, periodical vacations that combine rejuvenation, active relaxation, and preventative health measures.

A third of all European mineral water springs are found in Romania. The water is used for both drinking and therapeutic purposes.

Spread throughout the country, Romanian spas feature mineral and thermal water, mud and therapeutic gas emanations.
Add to these the climate and the landscape, the human touch of specialized personnel to contribute to the restoration, prevention, and maintenance of health, a diversified infrastructure adapted to the health industry (hotels and pensions, treatment facilities equipped with the most modern medical equipment), traditional methods and natural products, and you can have a complete image of the Romanian health spa potential.


Antiaging treatment

One of the most world famous treatments was discovered here by Dr. Ana Aslan: the serum that is supposed to stop the aging process. The patented drugs Gerovital H3 and Aslavital are available as an additional treatment at most Romanian Spas.
Gerovital is good for preserving youthfulness, vitality, increased energy to unparalleled levels, improvement of memory and physical and intellectual capacity. In the words of Dr. Ana Aslan, you will be able to feel young once again.
