Health Cure Treatments
Since its opening Hotel Európa Fit has always devoted a lot of energy to improve its wellness services and medical treatments based on the healing water of Hévíz. In this spirit in 2007 we reformed our treatments and established our wellness offers.
What does it exactly mean?
Medical wellness traditionally combines the different methods of healthy life style with medical treatments. Actually it is a medically controlled wellness program, which alters from traditional medication because in this case the person is in the centre and prevention is determinant.
