Today's travelers consider travel for health and wellness as rest and relaxation, improving lifestyle, getting fit or even medical services. Those with busy lifestyles may seek a spa experience, exercise, or simply a hammock with the sound of the ocean breeze in the background. In some cases, travelers are seeking alternatives to the medical treatments. It is important to research reputable organizations and facilities before traveling to a destination for medical purposes.
Spa resorts and cruises offer gyms and exercise classes. It is not unusual to join a morning yoga session. A beautiful beach is always a remedy for rest and relaxation. Because of affordability and world class facilities, many destinations welcome medical travelers. Services include knee or hip replacements, spinal surgery, dental work, heart surgery, cosmetic surgery or health screening. Destinations such as Costa Rica, Mexico and Thailand are popular spots. The decision to travel to another country for medical services can be daunting. Our resources include "Patients Beyond Borders" as well as contacts for all Tourism Boards around the world. We will assist with requests for profiles of the hospitals and clinics, updated information on treatment specialties, accreditation, transportation and more. Note: All medical tourism are referred to licensed medical professionals. Advice should only be received and considered by a licensed physician.
