Czech Republic launches long-Covid recovery treatments

Czech Tourism and the Czech Spa Association have launched new ‘Long-Covid’ recovery packages for health and medical travellers.

Czech Tourism and the Czech Spa Association will be providing details about the post-Covid treatment packages, offered by several of the most well-known medical spas in the country, at an online ‘Post-Covid Recovery Conference’ on June 24.

Reflecting a potential new role for the medical travel sector in treating Long Covid, the packages will aim to provide new personalised healthcare programmes, to help patients recover from Long Covid, boost their immune system and improve general health and wellbeing.

Czech Tourism states that treatments such as mineral water inhalation, saltwater hydrotherapies and therapeutic hot mud therapies, when combined with personalised diet and wellbeing programmes, can play a pivotal role in supporting patients when dealing with respiratory, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal issues, and other long-term consequences of Covid-19.

The Czech spa tradition is one of the oldest in Europe, and the country boasts over 90 therapeutic facilities in more than 30 spa locations. The three leading ‘healing towns’ in the country are Mariánské Lázně, Karlovy Vary and Teplice.  Representatives from Ensana Marianske Lazne Health Spas and Hotels, The Savoy Westend Hotel and Spa, and the Royal Spa will be speaking at the conference.
