What is a Medical Spa?


A medical spa, also referred as Health or Med spa, offers a much broader set of treatments than a regular spa. Besides facials and massages, a selection of medical treatments similar to the ones that are performed in a doctor’s office, both conventional and alternative, can be found. Medical and health spas are a hybrid between a traditional spa and a medical clinic and allow us to tackle health and beauty issues in a soothing and sophisticated environment.

Why go to a Medical Spa?


1- Enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and avoid the stressed atmosphere of a doctors’ office, crowded with patients in waiting rooms and with medical professionals rushing around. A medical spa offers more space and peace and these little differences can have a big impact in your mood and mind-set.


2- Take comfort in the fact that the medical staff and healthcare providers have expert knowledge and are fully certified and equipped with cutting edge technology, thus being able to provide an integrated and restful experience.


3- Find some of the best anti-ageing treatments in terms of corrective cosmetic such as Botox, medical microdermabrasion and medical grade peels, skin surfacing, skin tightening and vain therapy, brown spots and fine lines and wrinkles. The staff not only has the necessary skills and expertise but also the technology that allows for better results from less invasive treatments.


4- Find some of the best preventive and anti ageing consultations and treatments from specialist heath providers. Some health retreats in Portugal offer cutting edge programmes that help early diagnosis of symptoms and imbalances. Therefore, a visit to a health spa is perfect for a long term, effective approach towards health and well-being.


5- Find some of the best alternative and complimentary consultations and treatments and gain a new perspective about how you can address health imbalances and chronicle conditions. Hydrotherapy doctors,  osteopaths, nutritionists, acupuncturist and other therapists offer a different angle, and a more comprehensive approach, usually involving less secondary effects.
