Medical tourism in the “Country of Smiles” has been literally skyrocketing lately. Medical centres of Thailand are supplied with innovative equipment, and doctors have received a very high level of training. Patients are accommodated in comfortable luxury-class wards and are surrounded by care and attention of medical personnel since the first days of stay. Moreover, the cost of medical services in the best Thai clinics is substantially lower than in Europe (by 60-70 % and even more). This is why Thailand more and more often receives patients from the USA, Australia, Japan, and West European countries.
Scores of private medical centres operate in Thailand, including network institutions targeted exclusively at foreign patients. These centres offer foreign patients a wide selection of checkup and treatment procedures in cardiology and cardio surgery, orthopaedics and traumatology, plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. Such procedures as plastic surgeries, addiction treatment, laser vision correction, and transgender surgeries find a ready market.
Oncologic diseases checkup and treatment is one of the popular fields which has been rapidly developing within the recent years. Medical centres of Thailand apply cutting-edge methods of radiation and chemical therapy and provide psychological support to patients during the treatment and rehabilitation process.
Diving-related diseases are also successfully treated in Thailand, in particular, decompression disease of divers. Patients are accommodated in a single ward being oxygen chamber, where you can stay without a mask and watch TV during the treatment procedure.
Treatment may be complemented with further rehabilitation and replenishing of vital forces at local spa resorts. They offer their guests ancient Thai methods along with orthodox Western machine methods combined in one-of-a-kind programmes designed for recovery, immunity strengthening, relaxation, and increasing vital tonus.
Recommended time for treatment: November to January.
Thailand, the so called City of Smiles, is a fusion of colours, lights, scents, and flavours. This is a contrasting combination of modern sky-scrapers, night carnivals of Bangkok, and wild palm growths, scenic mountain views, waterfalls, and quiet snow-white sandy beaches. Moreover, Thailand is one of the hottest destinations in Asia which attracts tens of thousands of citizens from Europe, the USA, and the CIS countries coming for recovery and resort recreation each year.
Beach and recovery resorts have spread along the whole length of the sea coast of Thailand. The fashionable hotel complexes of Pattaya, Koh Larn Islands, Samui, Phuket, Phi Phi hold exotic spa saloons offering a vast range of recovery, general revitalising, and cosmetological procedures.
Mild warm climate, fresh sea wind, clean air imbued with herb and flower fragrances, warm sun supplemented with top-class service and friendly personnel ready to fulfil your every wish will turn your stay into a truly paradise experience. Palm and coconut growths, snow-white sandy beaches, absolutely clear emerald water endow with a feeling of peace and solitude.
At spa centres visitors are traditionally offered herb steam baths, mineral baths, saunas, let alone the famous Thai massage, general revitalising massage of musculoskeletal apparatus. The secret of astounding results of this massage lies in the artful combination of three impacts on the human organism: direct massage of muscle tissues, manual impact on the elements of skeleton and vital points. A couple of Thai massage sessions normalise the functioning of musculoskeletal apparatus, cardio-vascular and respiratory system, organs of internal secretion.
Another type of therapeutic massage offered by almost every other spa centre is foot massage. It improves blood circulation in the organism and makes an impact on all internal organs. During the procedures the extracts of healing herbs, flowers and berries, herb infusions, and minerals producing a general revitalising, nourishing, and tonus increasing properties are applied.
Ancient Thai methods of treating many diseases have retained their importance even nowadays. A great number of diseases are treated in Thailand applying natural dietology. Fruit diets are prescribed by experienced doctors depending on the patient’s disease. Papaya possesses miraculous properties and is beneficial for people with stomach and intestinal disorders, and combined with lime juice it breaks up cholesterol and clears the organism of it. Pineapples are recommended for patients with metabolic disorders and those wishing to slim down. Bananas are recommended by doctors for increasing male potency, and besides, they inhibit cancerous cell growth in the organism.
