Health Tourism, Gran Canaria

(x0)  | By: Fletcher.A | 2,639 Views | 2 Replies

Gran Canaria is largely known for its health tourism - in actuality, one of the oldest forms of tourism in the world. The island started early on, around the second half of the 19th century. During those times, a number of people suffered from lung, stomach and nerve problems. It was also during those times that people were attracted to the island due to the stories of miracle cures circulating around Europe. The phenomenon even included the doctors themselves who personally recommended the impressive climate and mineral waters of Gran Canaria.

Today, Gran Canaria maintains this distinction by developing a wide range of services and facilities for consultations and for the treatment of different health disorders.

Some of what the island can offer include spas, whose waters are rich in minerals and blended with sea water. These are perfect for rehabilitation treatments, acute rheumatism, ulcerated lesions, skin and bone disorders, fatigue and stress.
