What is a healing climate?
Even in ancient Greece it was observed that in certain places not only did people have more of a zest for life, but also only suffered from certain diseases very rarely. This is very easy to explain, if you consider that the climate is made up of various factors which can pressure, preserve or stimulate the organism. A pressure would be for example cold, misty weather or muggy heat. Significantly we would call such weather terrible. If the sun was shining with mild temperatures (providing us with UV rays), we talk about a nice day. Whereas on a winter walk our organism is stimulated and we have a larger appetite in the evening. A healing climate is no other than a climate in which the pressure factors are only minimal in the long term, greatly outnumbered by stimulating sources and/or gentle factors. For therapy in a healing climate, stimulating factors and gentle factors will be used in such a way that the body regenerates itself or toughens up so that it can protect itself against illnesses, according to the individual illness or constitution.

- Strong daily variations in air temperature
- Gusty wind
intensity of sun rays(mountain sun)
- Salty air
balanced thermal conditions
- Slightly increased radiation
