The EuropeSpa qualification system was developed through an initiative of the European Spas Association (ESPA). Today it is the ESPA's official quality system for medical spa and wellness. EuropeSpa provides technically profound orientation and transparency in the European market for medical spa and wellness, promoting reliable service providers among the European thermal baths and providing visitors a guarantee of high quality of services at a level that meets the professional standards. Széchenyi Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool, winner of the Hungarian Quality Product Award and named the Best International Medical Thermal Bath by the International Medical Travel Journal's Medical Travel Awards 2016, is one of the largest bath complexes in Europe. Built in a classicist style between 1909 and 1913, the medicinal waters of the bath are sourced from a depth of 1,246 metres, its temperature being 76 °C. A model of this building can currently be seen at the "Mini Europe" exhibition in Brussels as part of Hungary's contribution. The entrance ticket includes a number of wellness services in addition to the traditional balneological services. The bath welcomes over 1,500,000 guests a year, increasing the number of international visitors especially from Eastern Europe (Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Kazahstan), and maintaining the number of visitors from Western Europe, such as France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. The 60% of tourists visiting Budapest are eager to relax in one of the beautiful, historical baths. Budapest is one of the most attractive and exciting cities in Central and Eastern Europe and one of the few capitals in the world where thermal springs can be found, so the city is called the Spa Capital of the World for a good reason and no visit to Budapest is complete without winding-down in one of the baths.


Le système de qualification EuropeSpa a été conçu via une initiative de l'European Spas Association (ESPA). C'est aujourd'hui le système officiel de certification de la qualité de la ESPA pour les spas médicaux et le bien-être. EuropeSpa encourage une orientation résolument technique ainsi que la transparence sur le marché européen du spa médical et du bien-être. Elle promeut des prestataires de services européens fiables et offre aux visiteurs une garantie de haute qualité des services, à un niveau qui satisfait les critères professionnels. Le complexe des bains et piscines de Széchenyi, lauréat du Hungarian Quality Product Award (prix du produit hongrois de qualité) et nommé Meilleur établissement thermal médical par le Medical Travel Awards 2016 de l'International Medical Travel Journal, est l'un des plus grands complexes thermaux en Europe. Les eaux médicinales de l'établissement, construit entre 1909 et 1913 dans le style néo-classique, sont puisées à une profondeur de 1 246 mètres, la température étant de 76 °C. On peut voir actuellement une maquette de cet édifice dans l'exposition « Mini Europe » qui se tient à Bruxelles, dans la partie consacrée à la Hongrie. Le billet d'entrée inclut différentes prestations de bien-être en plus des services de balnéothérapie traditionnels. L'établissement accueille plus de 1 500 000 personnes par an, augmentant le nombre de visiteurs internationaux venus notamment d'Europe de l'Est (Russie, Ukraine, Turquie, Kazakhstan), et maintenant le nombre de visiteurs d'Europe de l'Ouest (France, Italie, Espagne et Royaume-Uni notamment). 60 % des touristes qui visitent Budapest viennent se détendre dans l'un de ces superbes bains historiques. Budapest est l'une des villes les plus attractives et intéressantes d'Europe centrale et orientale et l'une des rares capitales du monde où l'on trouve des sources thermales. La ville mérite donc bien son nom de Capitale mondiale du spa et les bains sont une expérience incontournable d'un séjour à Budapest.

Due to barriers that exist in when considering the sustainability of the built environment, optimising energy efficiency in buildings is often a management issue and not one of design. In many cases, it is the organisation responsible for the building that makes the decision with respect to where best to invest their limited resources. For this reason, decision support tools, providing information with respect to a buildings energy consumption and methods for implementation and incentivisation of the solutions, benefiting all stakeholders involved are required. UMBRELLA will address this issue through the development of an innovative, web-based decision-support application, which provides common independent evaluation tools built around new and adaptable business models. The interface will use guided navigation to ascertain key information from users such as: key stakeholders; building location; building type; new or retrofit build; owner objectives and preferences e.g. energy efficiency, carbon and budget requirements etc. Business models, specific to the project and stakeholders will then be provided through the online dynamic web portal, which will allow users to explore and optimise different business models and the relating implications and recommendations for interventions to their specified building. This can be applied to any building at any stage of design or use. The UMBRELLA project will target 2% of the EU building stock within 5 years of commercialisation of project deliverables. This will result in an increase in the market share of energy efficient solutions of 15% within 5 years, resulting in reductions of 3.096Mtoe per year. The UMBRELLA deliverables will be demonstrated in 4 regional flagship projects located in the UK, Italy, Spain and Poland. Finally, the SME and industrial content of the consortium is high, with 7 out of the 10 partners belonging to an SME organisation and 8 of the 10 partners belonging to an industrial organisation

Das Corinthia Hotel London führt als erstes Hotel überhaupt ein einjähriges neurowissenschaftliches Residenzprogramm zur Erforschung des menschlichen Gehirns durch. Im Rahmen dieses Programms, das von November 2016 bis Dezember 2017 stattfindet, hat sich das zentral am Londoner Whitehall Place gelegene Fünf-Sterne-Luxushotel mit der renommierten Neurowissenschaftlerin Dr. Tara Swart zusammengetan. Sie wird die mentale Belastbarkeit mehrerer ausgewählter Hotelmitarbeiter sowie treuer Geschäftsreisender untersuchen. Dabei wird sie analysieren, wie diese mit Stress umgehen, und daraus am Ende der Residenz eine spezielle Studie zur Leistung des Gehirns erstellen. Alle Teilnehmer erhalten Tipps zur Verbesserung ihrer Gehirnleistung, um auf diese Weise ihr Potenzial auf der Arbeit und in der Freizeit optimal auszuschöpfen. Die Empfehlungen beziehen sich auf die Bereiche Schlaf, Wasserhaushalt, Ernährung, Sport und Achtsamkeit. Im Laufe des Jahres wird Dr. Tara Swart darüber hinaus vier Vorträge halten, um zu erklären, wie sich die Hirnforschung auf Themen wie Politik, Technik und Wirtschaft anwenden lässt. In einem Vortrag wird sie darauf eingehen, weshalb Psychopathen, Narzissten und Soziopathen häufig in Führungspositionen anzutreffen sind. Die Neurowissenschaften nehmen eine Vorreiterstellung bei der Erforschung der Frage ein, wie das Gehirn das Verhalten und die kognitiven Fähigkeiten beeinflusst; dies wird letztlich zu einem grundlegend anderen Verständnis davon führen, wie das Gehirn funktioniert und warum sich Menschen so verhalten, wie sie es tun. Die wegweisende Forschung von Dr. Tara Swart verhilft Führungskräften von einigen der erfolgreichsten Unternehmen der Welt zu Wettbewerbsvorteilen, indem sie den Gesundheitszustand ihres Gehirns untersucht und verbessert. Auf diese Weise können mentale Belastbarkeit und geistige Spitzenleistungen erreicht werden. Gäste und Besucher des Corinthia Hotels London können während des 13-monatigen Residenzprogramms ihre Gehirnleistung optimieren, indem sie ein eigens kreiertes Paket zur Förderung der Gehirnleistung testen. Das Paket versorgt das Gehirn mit einer Zusammenstellung wichtiger Nährstoffe, die die Neubildung, den Schutz und die Reparatur von Gehirnzellen unterstützt; gleichzeitig wird das Gehirn dank einer Auswahl von Hirnleistungs-Drinks mit Flüssigkeit versorgt, was die mentale Leistungsfähigkeit verbessert. Zusätzlich werden die fünf Sinne bei einer zweistündigen, auf der Yoga-Nidra-Technik beruhenden Achtsamkeitsmassage im hoteleigenen ESPA Life Spa verwöhnt. Ziel ist es, mittels Atem- und Visualisierungstechniken Stress zu reduzieren und die Konzentrationsfähigkeit zu verbessern. Zudem soll in den Hotelzimmern gezielt dafür gesorgt werden, dass Gäste ungestörten Schlaf finden, um das glymphatische System - das Entsorgungssystem des Gehirns - bei seiner lebenswichtigen nächtlichen Arbeit zu unterstützen. Die Medizinerin Dr. Tara Swart ist Neurowissenschaftlerin, Coach für Führungskräfte, preisgekrönte Autorin und Dozentin am MIT Boston. Sie ist die einzige hochrangige Führungskräfte-Trainerin, die über einen Doktortitel in Neurowissenschaften verfügt und darüber hinaus auf eine medizinische Laufbahn als Psychiaterin zurückblicken kann.

When 500+ wellness experts from 46 nations gather to debate the future of wellness, a uniquely authoritative and global view of trends unfolds. That’s what happened at the recent Global Wellness Summit (GWS) in Kitzbühel, Austria, which brought together leaders from the travel, spa, beauty, fitness, nutrition, technology, medical and architecture worlds to identify what the top wellness trends in 2017 (and beyond) will be – and why. This wellness forecast has a distinct “get real” quality: from architects finally designing buildings for human health to so many new directions ahead in mental wellness to a wellness industry that will become more democratized, reaching beyond its narrowing association with wealthy elites. And much innovation lies ahead: from a new focus on both “silent” and creativity/arts programming (at hotels, spas and fitness studios) to the 2,000-year-old sauna tradition getting a 21st-century reimagining. “No other trends report is based on the perspectives of so many wellness experts, whether leading economists or futurists or the heads of hospitality, spa and beauty brands,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chairman & CEO. “And it makes for a powerfully collective, global and informed set of predictions.” After the trends were identified, GWS researchers expanded on global examples to illustrate the ways they’re already taking shape in our world. To read the full, 50-page report (with photos), click here Something both hot and very cool: the reinvention of sauna that’s underway. From “Sauna Aufguss” events where “sauna-meisters” conduct theatrical performances of infusions, song and dance. To hip, social “amphitheater” or “hangout” saunas (whether Helsinki’s new high-design Löyly sauna complex or Scotland’s new loch-side “Hot Box” with DJ and bar). To quirky pop-up saunas floating on lakes or hanging from bridges. To trendy urban “sweat lodges” serving up infrared sauna treatments, like NYC’s Higher Dose. No longer a solitary, “meh” experience, the new, spectacular, social saunas are some “outside of the box” thinking…literally. Architecture has long been preoccupied with surface aesthetics: “starchitects” designing to wow or shock, but with little attention paid to creating buildings that improve the health of the humans living within. Change is finally here: “living buildings” that grow their own energy; responsive architecture that tailors indoor health experiences for every inhabitant; phone apps alerting you when you’re entering a “sick” building; dawn-simulating lighting easing you into your day. Everything built is getting reengineered: from indoor air quality (a killer) to sleep and acoustics. In a world of 24/7 connectedness, wellness destinations are embracing a dramatic approach to “turning off” the noise: true silence. For example, the first completely “Silent Spa” (with stunning church-inspired architecture) just opened at Austria’s Therme Laa Hotel. And new “wellness monasteries” are on the rise: retreats opening in, and infused with the silent, contemplative values of, ancient sacred spaces - like Italy’s soulful Eremito, with no WiFi/phone signal and silent, candlelit dinners. Properties like Germany’s Brenner’s Park have even installed “digital kill switches” for totally silent rooms. And “silent” restaurants, salons, gyms, stores and airports are all being unveiled… Born of a storied history, but forgotten of late, the creativity-wellness-spa connection is making a comeback: with more art, music, literature and dance (both as experienced and “to do”) at the center of more wellness experiences. Look for more performance, like at Germany’s famed spa resort, Schloss Elmau, where musicians and writers “play-to-stay” (making possible 200+ concerts a year) – or live classical violin while taking the waters at the UK’s new Gainsborough Bath Spa Hotel. We’ll see more sophisticated, “beyond the adult coloring book” programming launch, like painting classes under the stars – as well as a profusion of multi-sensory experiences, from sound baths to “yoga concerts.” The creative arts have a future starring role in wellness. Beauty, the goliath industry ($1 trillion) of the $3.7 trillion wellness economy, is remaking itself to meet the needs of a wellness-oriented population obsessed with authenticity and “inner beauty.” From an avalanche of eatable/drinkable beauty-boosters and clean, organic cosmetics - to medical evidence for a new neuroaesthetics (the brain is wired to respond to beauty) - the “beauty comes from within” concept will keep gaining on superficial (topical) models. And preventative approaches will keep gaining on the old “cosmetic repair.” We will continue to learn (and snap up solutions that tackle) how beauty is far more than skin deep. When it comes to mental wellness, our world has a problem: depression and anxiety is skyrocketing, and by 2030, the former will be the #1 health issue, outranking obesity (WHO). So look for dramatically more “healthy mind” approaches in coming years. Wellness retreats and spas are adding neuroscientists and psychotherapists (like London’s ESPA Life at Corinthia Hotel). Meditation is not only radically mainstreaming (even on-demand in hotel rooms), but spawning creative new breeds (from “dream” to “floating” meditation). We’ll see everything from new part-mind/part-body workout brands to apps that track your mental state (think MindBit, not FitBit). Because “mind” will finally get equal billing with “body.” The wellness world is waking up to the needs of a surprisingly underserved population: cancer patients. For instance, Julie Bach’s pioneering “Wellness for Cancer” program means wellness companies/spas are finally trained to deliver comfort (and dignity) to cancer sufferers. From ESPA’s “Nurture and Support” program to Natura Bissé’s “oncological aesthetics” to Two Bunch Palms’ “Mindful Touch Massage”, wellness practitioners are finally opening their hearts and healing practices to cancer patients. Beyond the Ghettos of Wellness In a world where rising income and “wellbeing” inequalities are fueling a populist backlash, a wellness industry that’s become narrowly associated with rich elites (those $300 yoga pants and Reiki sessions) will change. More wellness businesses will give back to the other 99%, like “Yoga Gives Back” helping poor women in India – or Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn, where every dollar of profit goes back to its economically-challenged island community. A “Wellness Tourism 2.0” will rise: a development model thinking beyond the (often elite, gated) property to creating whole towns, regions and even nations, where a comprehensive wellness vision (from protected nature to a sustainable, healthy food supply) benefits BOTH locals and tourists. The new wave of low-cost “wellness” is part of this democratization: like more affordable healthy supermarkets and spa chains. But with some future mindfulness about “rock-bottom” vs. “fair” pricing, given the human labor that delivers so many of these healthy experiences.

Corinthia Hotel London is staging a year-long Neuroscience in Residence, a first for any hotel, to study the human brain. Running between November 2016 and December 2017, the five-star luxury hotel in central London's Whitehall Place has teamed up with renowned neuroscientist Dr Tara Swart. She will research the mental resilience of a selection of hotel staff and loyal business guests of the hotel. An analysis of how they cope with stress will generate a special Brain Power Study at the end of the residency. All participants will be given brain-boosting advice on how to maximise their potential, at work and at home covering sleep, hydration, diet, exercise and mindfulness. Tara will also give four talks throughout the year, explaining how the science of the brain can be applied to topics such as politics, technology and business. One will tackle why psychopaths, narcissists and sociopaths often occupy company boardrooms. Neuroscience is in the vanguard of research into how the brain impacts behaviour and cognitive function; it is fundamentally changing our understanding of how the brain works and why people behave the way they do. Tara's cutting-edge work helps leaders of some of the world's most successful companies get a competitive edge by understanding and improving the physical condition of their brains, thus achieving mental resilience and peak brain performance. Guests and visitors to Corinthia Hotel London during the 13-month residency can optimise their brain power performance by sampling a specially-created Brain Power Package. The package nourishes the brain with a menu of essential nutrients that help create, protect and repair brain cells; hydrates the brain with a selection of Brain Power Drinks to help mental functioning; indulges the five senses with a two-hour Mindful Massage with Yoga Nidra at the hotel's ESPA Life spa. This is designed to help reduce stress and enhance focus through breathing and visualisation techniques; and helps the brain's glymphatic system - the waste clearance system of the brain - do its essential night-time work by creating conditions in guest bedrooms for undisturbed sleep. Dr Tara Swart is a neuroscientist, leadership coach, award-winning author, Senior Lecturer at MIT Boston and medical doctor. She is the only top-tier leadership coach with both a PhD in neuroscience and a medical career as a psychiatrist.
