F.X. Mayr Cure – the foundation for a healthier life

Our philosophy at Park Igls

The success of our treatment regime at Park Igls is based on a simple but groundbreaking disocvery by Franz Xaver Mayr: a healthy gut is the solution to many medical problems. Our philosophy builds on this idea to develop a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Nutrition, exercise, regeneration and medicine are the four pillars for effective diagnosis, prevention and treatment during your stay. The ultimate goal is to support you on your personal journey to a healthier life.

Health begins in the gut

The gut is the root system of every human being

  • Like the roots of the tree, the human gut is invisible. People usually associate the term health with easy-to-measure parameters like mood, mobility and physical appearance. Yet it is often forgotten that intestinal health is the foundation.
  • If a tree is sick at the root, this usually only become visible when external symptoms of disease and decay appear. Intestinal problems are the root cause of many diseases in modern civilisation, despite the fact that we are often unable to see this with our eyes.
  • Ultimately, the roots of a tree are essential. They provide strength, nourishment and support. Likewise, a healthy intestine is essential for our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

Five good reasons for a Mayr Cure at Park Igls

The best address for a healthier life

Freedom & support

Here at the Park Igls Medical Spa Resort we focus on one thing and one thing alone: your health. This focus is embraced by all members of staff, both in the medical department and our service team. Discreet yet personal service is our philosophy. After all, we know that the perfect balance of freedom and guidance is key to a successful treatment.

In good hands

Here at Park Igls our team of doctors applies the latest in medical knowledge – an approach recognised through many international awards. All guests have their own personal doctor who will guide them throughout their stay and take into consideration individual needs and requests. Park Igls also pursues close cooperation with Innsbruck Medical University in order to stay up to date with new developments in medical research and development.

Location, location, location

From the regional capital Innsbruck, a long and winding road leads up to Park Igls perched on a sunny plateau at around 900 metres above sea level. Upon arrival, guests are treated to magnificent views of Tyrol's spectacular mountain landscape. On the other side of the valley, north of Innsbruck, stand the mighty Nordkette Mountains. South of Innsbruck, in Igls itself, visitors will find a mix of thick forests and lush meadows at the foot of the Patscherkofel mountain. A truly spectacular setting for your health retreat – and the perfect place to soak up the sun as you relax mind, body and soul.
