This book takes readers on a journey through the rich and varied wellness cultures of twelve European countries, from decadent Art Nouveau spas in Hungary to traditional pirts sauna rituals in Latvia. Throughout the book, the holistic approaches to wellbeing in each region are revealed, including those based in the power of natural resources, such as respiratory healing in Poland's salt mines, mineral water therapies in Hungary, smoke saunas in Estonia and mud pools in Slovakia. Traditional therapies have long been offered to treat everything from digestive and musculoskeletal problems to the stress and obesity issues of today. Stunning photographs of the region's architecture, landscape, food and natural remedies are combined with fascinating tales from history and of famous visitors. This generously illustrated and informative book also explores cost-effective and culturally intriguing alternatives to the more frequently visited spa destinations.
