19 The Future of Thermal Tourism

20 How? Europe Trans-border Care 2013 (October) to take affect in the European Union Affects medical care & treatment Spa therapies will be covered with a physician RX Subsidized treatment allowances have decreased in Europe as cost savings measure Out of pocket costs have increased More private pay, most likely shorter stays, perhaps more opportunity for increased frequency

21 Natural Assets & Lifestyle Shape Tourism Cultural traditions, lifestyle approaches & availability of natural assets shape the world in terms of WT services.

Natural healing assets: significant in WE & CEE Rehab & surgical important in every sub-region (sans SE) Middle East: natural healing & medical Africa: natural environment plus spirituality

(Encyclopedia of Occupational Safety and Health) By 2020 top 5 disease conditions share underlying factor of stress Heart disease, stroke, cancer, respiratory disease & cancer who.int

27 Opportunities Individuals Families Communities States Countries Health as the new Wealth Shift: Passive to active Mind/body stress 24/7 Stakeholders Businesses/Corporations Insurance Companies Government Agencies Associations Executives/Workforce HR/Benefit Specialists Hospitals & H/W Providers Products/Services Travel Agencies. Airlines Meeting Planners &Incentive Travel Wellness Destinations/Hotels Spas Chronic conditions, if not prevented or properly managed will be the most expensive problem, overburdening healthcare systems

28 Untapped, Under-Utilized & Under Promoted Spas as a Legitimate & Critical Provider Most Popular -Back care WW -Exercise Programs: Most Popular Workplace Wellness Programs: -Stress management -Stop-smoking -Back care (WELCOA) -Stress relief -Fitness -Stopsmoking (WELCOA) Therapies w/clinical Evidence Art therapy Ayurveda Biofeedback Breath work Hypnosis Chinese Medicine Massage Meditation Music Therapy Psychotherapy Thermal Waters In an environment in which health care costs are skyrocketing, the sensible approach is to reduce the need for care, and the most powerful way to accomplish this is by focusing on evidence-based prevention...this will only succeed if spending on prevention is considered a priority rather than discretionary and only if incentives are realigned. (Committee on Health, Productivity and Disability Management, Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, May 2009) Engagement -Clinical Studies Health Promotion- Health Education Lifestyle Management - ROI
