Grand Resort Bad Ragaz celebrates Global Wellness Day

Bad Ragaz, June 2015 – Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, Europe’s leading wellbeing and medical health resort, is proud to celebrate Global Wellness day with a special complimentary wellness programme at the 36.5° Wellbeing & Thermal Spa.

Grand Resort Bad Ragaz “Says Yes” to Global Wellness Day, with a one-day event celebrating health and wellbeing, taking place this June 13th 2015. By offering complimentary Wellness talks, workshops, a tour of Bad Ragaz’s Tamina Gorge and other activities the resort stands united with hundreds of spas and wellness organizations in more than 55 countries from Turkey to Thailand to support proactive wellness.

Global Wellness Day is based on the simple premise of increasing global consciousness of living a better life, even if it’s just for one day, by drawing a focus on healthier lifestyle choices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number one health problem in the world is, surprisingly, not a virus or a disease but depression – an affliction, which is linked to sleeplessness, stress and obesity.

The non-profit project created by Belgin Aksoy three years ago is being embraced by the spa and wellness world and has now also been accepted as a Global Wellness Institute initiative. Belgin, who came up with an idea to combat depression and unhappiness by promoting the importance of living well, says, “We’ve honored almost everything which is valuable to us with a special day, so why not have one that’s dedicated to the universally accepted importance of wellness?” Wellness is at the heart of Grand Resort Bad Ragaz’s ethos and the resort is proud to promote this important initiative. Guests at this leading resort enjoy some of the best wellness facilities in Europe, including the thermal spa and access to Bad Ragaz’s healing waters. The healing, body-temperature water has been flowing directly to Bad Ragaz since 1840, making the resort a unique source of personal wellbeing and health. It is thanks to this “Blue Gold” that Bad Ragaz enjoys a worldwide reputation as a spa resort, celebrating the waters 175-years-jubilee in 2015.

But also expert assistance from health professionals, relaxation treatments, bespoke training programmes and the specially designed healthy menu Cuisine Équilibrée make this resort to Europe’s Leading Wellbeing & Medical Health Resort. Most recently the resort has been awarded “Best Wellnesshotel in Switzerland 2015” by a Swiss Sunday newspaper. “Living a life with wellness at its core is the guiding principle of our organization which is why we “Say Yes” to Global Wellness Day and are proud that many in our Institute network, including Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, are embracing this important campaign,” said Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO of the Global Wellness Institute.
