The Best Medical Spas in Italy

09/06/2022, Healing Holidays

Palazzo Fiuggi

Nestled within a private 8.5-hectare park overlooking the medieval spa town of Fiuggi, Lorenzo Giannuzzi, founder of the Palazzo Fiuggi Medical Concept and his team of specialists have created a radical new approach to health, wellbeing and longevity in the heart of Italy. Fusing the deepest holistic traditions with the most advanced traditional Western medicine, their integrative approach to health and wellness elevates therapy beyond the treatment of symptoms to fully rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.

Their retreat programmes take a 360-degree approach to your health. The diagnostic assessments and consultations allow the team of renowned scientists and doctors, who are experts in their fields, to carefully craft a bespoke portfolio of medical services, wellness treatments and holistic therapies designed exclusively for you.

Fiuggi-born Professor David Della Morte Canosci delivers ground-breaking research into neurology and internal medicine at universities in Miami and Rome. His team of eight specialist doctors have created programmes around longevity, optimum weight and the immune system; much of their work is based on the professor’s findings regarding the pathological pathways that link metabolic and cognitive diseases with the ageing process.

Palazzo Fiuggi takes a detailed medical history, establishes your primary objectives and selects the most suitable protocol to meet your needs and expectations. Many of their medical programmes such as the Palazzo Fiuggi Immune Boost will include medical, genetic and epigenetic tests, hormone tests and microbiota analysis, blood tests, and electrocardiogram (ECG) as well as dynostics (metabolic analysis). Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis will determine body composition, hydration levels, fat and non-fat mass to determine appropriate diet and lifestyle interventions.

Whilst at Palazzo Fiuggi, food plays a key part in the wellness philosophy, with three-Michelin-star chef Heinz Beck working very closely with the property's team of medical experts to create delicious personalised meal plans that harness the power of essential nutrients and micro-nutrients to create delicious meals that achieve safe weight loss through targeted fat reduction, without the usual feelings of hunger.

Many of the programmes also incorporate their unique therapeutic spring water which is shown to have a beneficial effect on a variety of ailments and chronic conditions including urinary tract problems, cystitis, pyelonephritis, metabolic disorders, gout and arthritis. It also complements the weight-loss, exercise and body balance programmes.

Palace Merano

Situated in northern Italy’s picturesque South Tyrol region, Palace Merano has gained a strong reputation for being the best place to go for a full-on medical detox – and it’s not without reason having won many awards for its success!

With state-of-the-art facilities and an expert medical team, a stay at Palace Merano will give your overall health and wellbeing a serious boost. On arrival, you will undergo a rigorous assessment with various blood and urine tests. Levels of toxins in the body will be measured, your physical structure and bone density will be analysed and a bio-energetic check-up will determine energy flow around the body. After this, a personalised programme will be prescribed that may include massages, cellular resonance treatments and hydro-aromatherapy sessions.

Their treatments are tailored to each guest’s individual needs and help boost immune-system function, soften hardened tissues and thereby improve the absorption of nutrients – especially vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.  

L'Albereta

Nestled high on a vine-clad hilltop in Lombardy, L’Albereta, an ivy-covered villa, is a world away from the minimalist spas that dot Europe. It oozes old-time glamour with its old master paintings and frescoes. You come here for incredible lymphatic drainage, mud wraps and meridian-boosting jet baths – it will kick start your sluggish organs and get your stamina back.

Their health-promoting medical programmes are all about boosting your metabolism whilst promoting better ageing and performance. L’Albereta’s Spa offers a full selection of specific high-tech treatments designed to solve a wide range of aesthetic problems and disorders. They are combined according to the specific requirements of each individual, with constant advice from and supervision by the medical staff. 

 L’Albereta uses the Chenot method which is designed to restore the body to its peak mental and physical wellbeing, using exclusive techniques for detoxicating and reactivating the energy channels and organic functions, tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.

Some of their medical treatments include Intoxication screening which is used to detect the bioavailability of trace elements and heavy metals that exist within your body’s tissue, Bio-Energetic treatments that consist of administering supportive personalised bioenergetics treatments (information signals) through electro-dermal conductivity points on the body to assist the restoration of its energetic balance, and diagnostic screening with lifestyle biomarkers that measures the accumulation of Advanced Glycation End-products in your body’s tissue. 

These types of treatments play a key role in the development of age-related chronic diseases, so their detection of them enables appropriate treatments and lifestyle modifications to be prescribed to reduce their prevalence.
