Health Tourism is one of the services of Hotel Sveti Kriz. The hotel Sveti Kriz offers its guests medical services – dental and rehabilitation.
Due to its climate, traffic accessibility, and natural advantages, Čiovo started the development of health tourism very early. The Holy Cross Monastery was a destination for people with pulmonary diseases from the mid-15th century until the 1970s. Ozone combined with Roman pine essential oils has a beneficial effect on the respiratory system. The benefits of microclimate are still present to this day and are attracting more and more guests with asthma problems to the Hotel Sveti Križ.
Only by staying on the island of Ciovo, walking by the sea or the forest, you do a lot for your health. Ciovo is considered to be true outdoor aromatherapy; whether you want to treat a disease or find various recreational programs at the Holy Cross Hotel.
Health tourism covers a wide range of services. Medical service can be a key motive for travel; you can combine it with fun, relaxation, and tourist attractions of the destination and visit nearby UNESCO cities and national parks.
We also offer dental medicine services thanks to our long tradition of offering patients an individual approach from the following branches of dental medicine: implantology, prosthetics, endodontics, restorative and aesthetic medicine.
Furthermore, we also offer rehabilitation programs as part of health tourism. Programs include individual medical-gymnastics with one therapist and physical procedures tailored to the patient’s condition and needs: therapeutic ultrasound magnetotherapy, electro-analgesic procedures, electrostimulation, continuous laser passive stretching, K-taping / kinesiotherapy, cryotherapy, and undergoing physical rehabilitation under constant therapy adapted to individual’s capabilities and needs.
Physical procedures, manual techniques, and kinesitherapy have the effect of reducing pain, stimulating healing processes, improving the tone of weakened muscles, affecting tissue elasticity, and reducing the tension of certain muscle groups.
During rehabilitation, in addition to improving mobility, strength, and endurance, the patient acquires knowledge and skills that will help him maintain the results achieved in everyday life, prevent recurrent injuries and slow down degenerative processes.
