International, transparent and on a high quality level, these standardised criteria apply throughout Europe. The European Spas Association's EuropeSpa med quality standard is a comprehensive set of guidelines for all health resorts and spa facilities delivering quality care. Europe Spa med addresses all relevant professionals and provides the basis for open competition in Europe's growing cross-border health tourism sector.
