OPENING SPEECH : Atmosphere by Krallerhof

ATMOSPHERE by Krallerhof is a new iconic spa and wellness destination near Leogang in the Austrian Alps. The builder-owner was looking for a holistic approach toward integrating a luxurious new facility into the existing 5-star Hotel Krallerhof and the regional landscape. The commission for Hadi Teherani Architects came via a competition in 2019; project development commenced in 2021. The grand opening was in April 2023.

Besides this project Hadi Teherani will talk about a project located in the state of Schleswig Holstein in northern Germany that has not been built yet. He will take you to Teheran to present two hotel projects. And to show the aims for different locations and the scales Hadi Teherani Architects works with, we conclude the lecture with our first thatched-roof house, a holiday home on the island of Sylt in Germany.

Dr. Anna Erat - My Recipe for Healthy Longevity

In the landscape of healthy longevity, my role as CEO of Longevity Center has allowed me to not only lead but also personally embody our mission of integrating scientific advancement with proven wellness practices. My personal recipe for longevity is based on an Longevity Center Method.

In our philosophy, we rely mainly on the biological age assessed by numerous tools at our disposal. Chronological age is just an additional point of reference for us. With the help of the biological clock’s genetics, and epigenetics as well as traditional best practice in diagnostics we assess the current state of the body.

In my presentation, I will delve into how this personalized approach, enriched by my experiences and our clinic’s innovative methodologies, paves the way for achieving optimal health and reduction of all aspects of my biological age. Join me to learn about my path to vitality.

How Medical Spas can help to stay healthy till the last breath

Everyone knows it, but not everyone does it. Fitness and especially endurance training minimise the risk of premature death. The latest studies recommend combining muscle-building exercises with regular endurance training at least twice a week to achieve the greatest success.

But how can we motivate our customers to start and, more importantly, how can we get them to stick with it? Preventative measures are perfect while you’re suffering, but once you’ve recovered, there are a thousand excuses to stay on the couch. Experts in medical spas Experts need successful methods and, above all, the knowledge of the positive effects on the body when fitness and nutrition are sensibly combined with other preventive diagnostic measures. As we are not looking after professional athletes, but sensitive and often affluent guests, we need to demonstrate a high degree of sensitivity and sensitivity in order to be successful. In addition, a subtle mental coaching strategy is another important factor in the success of our mission.

With over 30 years of coaching experience with a wide variety of athletes, from the severley overweight with Saudi prince to Olympic biathlon champions, Hans-Peter Veit wants to share his secrets for successful and, above all, sustainable training with his listeners.

Experience as medicine - intentional therapeutic experiences

In a rapidly evolving wellness landscape, the fusion of immersive arts, technology, and sensory sciences marks a significant birth of intentional therapeutic experiences.

We call it Experience as Medicine.

We witness the emergence of innovative wellness paradigms responding to global behavioral changes and commercial needs. This evolution is illustrated through the application of Neuroaesthetics in creating spaces that profoundly impact mental and physical wellbeing. Think of rooms enhanced with light-guided breathing and chromatic showers, each designed not just for aesthetics but for therapeutic benefit.

The journey continues with the integration of arts into the realm of medicine. Venues are no longer mere places of stay; they transform into havens of experiential wellness. Collaborations with artists and technologists bring forth immersive art installations, turning every guest interaction into an opportunity for mental and emotional healing.

Our talk aims to provide a comprehensive and forward-thinking perspective on the future of arts and wellness, showcasing how integrating science, technology, and design can revolutionize various industries.

Differentiation, Collaboration, and Integration in the Touchless Wellness Environment: The Gharieni Group Rebranding as a Case Study

Gharieni Group’s founder and CEO Sammy Ghariani will take us on his journey of more than 30 years of innovation in the wellness industry and why his new rebranding strategy is right in sync with today’s biggest trends.

Healthy and antı-stress actıvıty

As an active part of this conference, we will have the chance to experience one part of the exceptional Bio Balance Concept by Sven Huckenbeck.

The 3 minutes musclehygiene for every day is a healthy routine for our shortened frontpart of our body – consitently trained throughout our intire life. It all started during our time at school by constantly spending time in a body position which is very similar to a depressive behavior. 

As we all know, that healthy teeth needs to be treated on an daily basis, we should do the same for our body posture. Because it doesn´t work just at the end of the month.

The three exercises are designed in such a way that the essential overlays of our regulatory systems can be felt and actively achieved. It is essentially stretching of the large fascia that can positively influence individual flow disorders caused by stress-related muscle tension and thus have an effect on our coordination, posture and also on lymphatic flow. In the sense of body-soul unity, this access via the body has very different, sometimes remarkably positive effects on the mental state of the individual. So we would like you to feel easiness and balance physically as a part of the congress.

Panelist topics

NeoScience – There are six light frequencies built into the NEO Light: Red, Green, Blue, and 3x Infrared. The full benefits of LED light therapy from this bed will be experienced in just eight minutes.

The versatile nature of Vitamin C and its potential applications in promoting health and well-being

Dr. Monica Fuchs will emphasize the opportunity to integrate IV Vitamin C services into medical spas, presenting a chance for improved patient care and business success. High-dose Vitamin C and nutrient infusion therapies are highlighted as preventive measures against susceptibility to infections, strengthening immune defenses, and enhancing overall well-being in challenging everyday situations.

It is stressed that Vitamin C is not merely a vitamin; it is a clinical therapeutic substance with a rich history. A deficiency in Vitamin C is not only linked to appearance; it is associated with systemic diseases, underscoring its irreplaceable role in overall health.
