Wellness as preservation of balance
Two or even more training sessions a day, a special diet, competitions… Everything in an athlete’s life is subject to achieving top form, including rest. Professional and even recreational athletes know how important rest after physical exertion, that is before and after physically and psychologically challenging competitions, is for achieving good results. Days scheduled for relaxation, a sort of sports quarantine, are the key to building and strengthening muscles. Motoric skills that the body starts to develop in training are only fully acquired during rest. In addition, a real rest in the form of a wellness treatment helps maintain the psychological balance.
An integral part of winter sports training
It was an injury that my father had sustained that first brought me to Northwest Istria, the corner of the Terra Magica that he chose for his long recovery. Staying in these magical surroundings, enjoying the beneficial effects of the Mediterranean climate and superior gastronomic specialties speeded up his return to the sports field, and tied us permanently to the Istrian Peninsula. Although wellness treatments have their benefits at any time of the year, enjoying the effects of saunas, pools and massages is particularly pleasing to the body and spirit in the late fall and winter, when it is cold outside. That makes wellness an integral part of the intricate winter sports preparations. Treatments adapted to the needs of top and recreational athletes are so important for achieving physical and mental fitness, that coaches dedicate days or even weeks to them in the colder part of the year.
