Water and Health - A Way of Life
23rd-25th May

History and culture
Domburg is the oldest seaside resort of Zeeland. Even in the Roman times there were bathing equipments. These therapies have emerged during archaeological excavation. Traditionally, Domburg was already known as a "spa". Dr. Mezger, founder of modern physiotherapy, opened a practice in Domburg in 1868 and introduced the new treatment methods. There is a special ‘dr. Mezger walk’ set out along places, who recall of the time when the" beau monde" came to Domburg to cure. During the congress there is a possibility to do this walk. In 1984 Domburg existed 150 years as a bathing resort.

A natural and healthy environment
Seawater, sea air, climate and soil products all play a role in the health region status Domburg has. The seawater at Domburg has been investigated by the renowned international SGS Institute Fresenius. In summary the nature of Domburg - near the sea with his pure air and beneficial water - offers opportunities for balneo (water) therapies and thalasso applications aimed at prevention and recovery. In the programme of the congress we planned wake up sessions at the beach with yoga. If you want you even can take a morning dive in the sea!
