Wellness tourism is travel for the purpose of promoting health and well-being through physical, psychological, or spiritual activities. While wellness tourism is often correlated with medical tourism because health interests motivate the traveler, wellness tourists are proactive in seeking to improve or maintain health and quality of life, often focusing on prevention, while medical tourists generally travel reactively to receive treatment for a diagnosed disease or condition.      

Greece The Top Wellness and Health Travel Destination and this is Why 

In Greece , Your Health does benefit by the original Holistic approach , as soon as you step on the Greek Land, by its nature's unique composition that transforms the atmosphere to an original  Wellness environment  since the ancient times .
