X. NATIONAL THERMAL MEDICINE AND BALNEOLOGY CONGRESS and “I. SPA AND WELLNESS SYMPOSIUM” will be held in Güre, on 11th-13th of April, 2013. Thermal medicine and Balneology/Hydroclimatology congresses, which we used to organize in every two years, will be held annually from now on. Because we aim to adopt an up-to-date approach and discuss the scientific developments and researches in the fields of balneology, thermal springs and thermal medicine, which increase rapidly both in our country and in the world. The program of X. National Thermal Medicine and Balneology Congress will serve to this purpose with the presentations and lectures of invited speakers. Presentations will focus on the scientific studies and researches conducted in the fields of thermal medicine and balneology-hydroclimatology. Moreover; scientists, namely experts in their fields that constitute the scientific board, will share scientific information with the participants.
While the thermal/thalasso cures are traditionally and commonly used for the treatment of various diseases in our country, in addition to thermal centers, spas, where natural & traditional treatments and applications are mainly used with the concept of wellness, emerge both nationally and globally. As the phrase goes, we are experiencing an explosion of “spa and wellness”. From this point forth, we will break new ground via our congress: 1st Spa and Wellness Symposium. Our purpose is to gather all the leading representatives in spa & wellness sector and create and aura of communication and interaction for them. We are aware of the fact that the need for managers, therapists, technicians and similar trained & experienced workers cannot be met. For this reason, we primarily aim to increase the levels of education, information and skill of the workers employed in the spa and wellness sector in Turkey.
We would like to invite you both to our symposium & congress and we hope to have a successful & fruitful congress for balneology, thermal medicine and spa & wellness sector in our country with your contribution and support.
