New Zealand is a relatively new player to the medical travel market. Its health care system follows American standard which makes it easier for overseas patients to enjoy medical treatment at the same level avoiding waiting times and benefiting from 30-50% discount. The doctors are highly skilled and most of them receive their certifications in the USA and Europe.
Ensuring medical services at the highest level possible many private hospitals in New Zealand are accredited by JCI or the national accreditation agency Quality Health New Zealand (QHNZ).
New Zealand is most popular for rare medical procedures like hip replacement and bypass surgeries for the coronary artery although general surgery including plastic surgery as well as ART infertility treatment and esthetic dentistry are gaining popularity among residents of the USA and neighboring Australia.
Splendid centuries-old traditions amount to much covering treatment by means of mineral and mud baths widely offered by spa and wellness resorts throughout the country.
Recommended time for treatment: all year round.
The geography of recovery and rehabilitation centres in New Zealand is extremely diverse. This country offers overseas tourists 580 spa centres and treatment and recovery resorts.
Thermal waters and muds of Rotorua Town located near the lake with the same name should be specifically noted. They are widely known for their miraculous properties since very ancient times. Each year thousands of foreign tourists come here, there are especially many visitors from South Korea and China. And not surprisingly, because thermal spa procedures are an excellent remedy for relaxing muscles and relieve rheumatic aches. Over 30% of tourists, having viewed the major sights of the country, eagerly strive to experience also the healthful effect of Rotorua springs.
Recreation at Rainbow Area resorts in New Zealand is termed as “treatment without hospitals”. Here every visitor can go through practically all types of recovery and rehabilitation. Recovery procedures at treatment resorts of this region are delivered at high standards, applying the latest methods of phytotherapy, aromatherapy, balneology, and numerous massage techniques. Personal involvement of local staff and their experience will insure smoouth and quick recovery in a short time frame.
Many tourists seeking top-class resort recreation are attracted to the Northern Island of New Zealand. This is the locale of well-known thermal springs — their hot bubbling water may be found under the layer of the coastal sand. Possessing the whole range of healthful substances and minerals, this water helps relieve aches in case of rheumatism and arthritis. That is why during the heat of the bathing season the coastal line resembles a giant mine: holiday-makers dig themselves into the sand up to the waistline for heating the lower part of the body. After this procedure it is recommended to refresh in cool sea water.
Golf tours to New Zealand enjoy the growing popularity among European and Asian citizens. Golf tours may be well combined with recovery programmes. After an entertaining game you can relax in a nearby spa centre offering various massage techniques, stone therapy and thalassotherapy.
