Within the last two years, Malaysia has gained position among the three Asian leading providers of medical services for foreign citizens. In 2009, private medical centres of Malaysia received about 350,000 patients. During the next three years, the inflow of patients is expected to increase by the average of 30% annually. Over 30 clinics and medical centres – members of the Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia are facilitated with leading-edge medical equipment and highly qualified medical personnel. Malay surgeons are widely known in the world as high-class specialists, many of them having earned international diplomas.
This country is famous for surgery, eye microsurgery, aesthetic dentistry, rheumatology, cancer treatment, cardiac surgery, as well as alternative and folk medicine, and naturally luxury Spa procedures. Treatment of cardio-vascular diseases applying ancient Malay folk traditions of healing became particularly famous outside the country’s borders. The methods are based on using various herbs and spices, which considerably improve blood circulation in the organism.
Medical tourists from wealthy Asian countries (Singapore, Japan) give preference to Malaysia not so much for the prices, which are 40-60% lower than in the USA or Germany, but for high quality medical services and especially comfortable conditions for patients. The latter receive accommodation in a separate ward with all conveniences, and are even provided with a personal steward or round-the-clock attendance of a personal nurse.
Recommended time for treatment: May, June, September.
Malaysia is renowned for applying traditional Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Bali, Malay, Thai, and European recovery methods. Rapid growth of the country’s recovery sector was owing to the combination of these ancient Oriental medical practices with advanced modern European and American technologies in the field of organism recovery and rejuvenation.
Each year the number of recovery centres in Malaysia is continually increasing. For today, over 170 Malay spa resorts offer their services to overseas patients. Resort recreation sector has long gained priority for Indonesian economy, and for this reason the level of servicing is extremely high.
Undeniably, coastline beaches are on the top of the “must visit” list for tourists coming to Malaysia for improving their health. Over 4500 km of sun-heated sand, gentle waves, and healthful sea air complemented by countless coral reefs in the west and east of the country facilitate the healing of post-surgical scars, fast recovery after respiratory illnesses, diseases of musculoskeletal system (especially arthritis and arthroses). The islands of Pangkor, Langkawi, and Tioman are vastly popular among overseas patients.
One of the widely demanded healing practices — acupuncture — was brought in to Malaysia with the first Chinese migrants. Traditionally, the course is comprised of several sessions during which the doctor “rehabilitates” energy channels by removing the “blockades”. The recent know-how in this method — extra fine long needles — make this procedure almost painless.
“Asian fusion” is the ideal procedure for those wishing to experience full delight of the Malay massage complex. It allows enjoying massage techniques of practically all ethnic groups residing in this country. During the first 30 minutes of a massage séance the masseur stretches the muscles using a Thai technique, then performs the Chinese massage stopping on the acupuncture points, after that he applies aromatic oil on the body and rubs it into the body by intensive strokes just as it was performed in ancient India.
Notably, spa resorts have long ceased to be an oasis for body and soul for women only. Men arriving to Malaysia in search of effective recreation procedures can restore their strength through applying a special Urut massage technique. The séance of such massage consists of long dynamic percussions and light strokes. Urut massage is not exclusive to spa procedures only. The representatives of the sterner sex are offered this massage technique even in Malaysian medical centres. It has been proven that Urut course of 9 procedures is very effective in infertility treatment or male sexual disorders.
