Sochi is not only Russia’s summer capital, it is also the country’s spa capital. Some 66 health resorts operate in the city year round, including sanatoriums, guest houses and medical and recreational complexes. More than half the health resorts in the Krasnodar region are concentrated in the city.
The city has the most advanced and well-equipped treatment facilities in all of Russia. Besides using natural healing agents, they also employ a wide range of methods, including apparatus physiotherapy, diet therapy, therapeutic exercise, all types of hydrotherapy, various forms of massage and non-conventional treatment. Highly-skilled medical specialists and spa therapists, using a combination of unique natural healing agents, traditional spa treatments and state-of-the-art methods and medical equipment, have created the most highly effective and unparalleled approaches to health recovery and rehabilitation.
Sochi is a multi-faceted resort specialising in treatments for the cardiovascular system, the central and peripheral nervous system and the musculoskeletal system, along with gynecological, dermatological and immune-allergic diseases.
In recent years, Sochi’s sanatoriums have greatly expanded their area of medical expertise and now offer treatment for diseases affecting the respiratory system, the gastro-intestinal tract, the endocrine system (especially the thyroid gland) and the eyes, along with urological diseases, occupational illnesses, treatment for radioactive contamination and the treatment of post-burn, keloid and hypertrophic scarring.
Even this does not exhaust what Sochi has to offer. The city’s leading health facilities have developed specialised treatments and diagnostic methods for endoecological rehabilitation which involves cleansing the body at the cellular level. The method was devised by professor Yuri Levin who was awarded the State Prize of the Russian Federation in 1999. The program relies on natural healing agents, herbal preparations, vitamins and biopreparations that cleanse the liver, intestines and the interior of the body.
Sochi’s health resorts also offer various types of massage, mineral water cures, tubage, gastric lavage, baths, showers, physiotherapy and so on, in addition to comprehensive programs such as weight loss, “Healthy Spine,” “Anti-stress,” “Health and Beauty,” “Easy Breathing,” “Easy Gait,” “Silk Road” and many others. Offices and facilities have opened specialising in bowel cleansing, apitherapy, hirudotherapy, reflexology, psychotherapy and relaxation, manual therapy, ozone therapy, cosmetology, and otolaryngological and dental problems.
Today, Sochi is a worthy competitor to the famous resorts of France, Belgium, Italy and the Czech Republic.
Several millennia ago, the land around Sochi was inhabited by primitive tribes. This is evidenced by numerous finds: the ruins of fortresses, sites, caves, tools, and dolmens.
