History The concept of medical tourism dates back to ancient civilization when travelers used to traverse the globe to access ancient thermal spas in Europe. Even in those times, India was known to have pioneered Ayurveda - a form of combining various herbs to arrive at solutions for ailments. It is commonly accepted today that medical treatments in certain locations are cheaper, more timely available and more accessible. Clients from the developed countries are reaching out for medical assistance and treatment to hospitals, doctors, dentists, nursing services, alternative medical solutions and so on in the developing countries. Similarly, clients from the developing world are reaching out for specialised and highly advanced medical treatments to the developed world and this global movement has led to the growth of medical tourism as an important and challenging independent vertical in the services industry. Even though modern medicine is supplemented by cutting edge technology and new scientific inventions, with discoveries being made constantly, traditional alternative medicinal practices are still a priority in several parts of the world. Medical tourism, along with good connectivity at affordable rates, has been instrumental in giving the choice of opting for alternative medicine to people across the globe and Life & Wellness is especially mindful of providing information and access to such alternative medical treatment to its clients.
What? Medical Tourism combines affordable medical, dental and surgical care along with travel to different locations which includes experiencing the tourist attractions of the chosen destination. We are living in an era where health care facilities are GLOBALIZED.
Why? Two major factors driving the medical tourism service industry are – quick and reasonable medical care and attractive travel locations in the country of treatment. Asian countries such as India, Thailand and Singapore are the hub of medical tourism as well as international business centers. It has been observed that the rising costs of medical treatment and delays in having access to diagnostics in the western countries are compelling people to rely on health tourism treatments as they look for treatment at reasonable costs. Also, Singapore, India and Thailand among others are particularly very well positioned to avail advantages of growth and development in the medical tourism sector, given their proximity to Australia, the MENA region, Europe and the USA.
