The rapid success of the Thai spa industry and intense competition has prompted many spas to evolve into fully integrated health and wellness centers offering holistic healing, complete with medical-oriented services, alternative treatments and lifestyle elements.
Major hospitals are also beginning to complement their medical services with new wellness centres and spas. Krung Siam St Carlos Medical Centre operates the award-winning St Carlos Medical Spa, which offers over 100 medical wellness treatments. Bumgrungrad International has opened the VitalLife Wellness Center providing anti-aging, weight-loss and wellness programmes. Bangkok General Hospital is adding the finishing touches to a Rehabilitation Centre that will include a fitness centre and spa.
