Located a few kilometres from Innsbruck, and circled by the Tyrolean Alps, Parkhotel Igls is a detox, medical clinic that adheres to the Mayr principle, (clean guts are the route to good health). Drawing on his famous theory of holistic wellbeing, the clinic believes that 80% of chronic disease is caused by bad nutrition and lack of exercise. Diagnostics are enhanced by the latest cutting-edge medical testing, as well as by alternative medical procedures. The clinic works closely with internationally renowned experts from the University Hospital in Innsbruck, so you will have access to the latest testing and treatments.
A stay here offers a major reboot to your system, so expect a light diet, a gentle exercise plan and a tailor-made course of treatments. Food and nutrition are a big part of your stay, and a diet plan, using locally-grown organic ingredients will be tailored for you. The food is surprisingly delicious, and there is a big effort to make it both tasty and pleasing to the eye. There are regular classes with the chef, so you can replicate dishes that are both healthy and wholesome, ensuring you retain vital nutrients in the cooking process.
Rooms are bright, contemporary and all have balconies with views of the Alpine mountains, where a waft of fresh pure air will improve your wellbeing instantly. There are daily guided walks into the surrounding countryside, yoga, aqua-aerobics, personal training and the best massages you will ever have - massages that will really treat your issues, and invariably performed by qualified physiotherapists. There is a cute spa with saunas, a hydrotherapy pool and steam rooms, as well as a lovely pool, BUT these are just the luxury trappings, as this is a serious medical clinic where you go to fix your health issues.
