Park Igls: a COVID-free zone

Thanks to the combination of health retreat with medical outpatient clinic, Park Igls is exempt from lockdown in order to maintain necessary health care. An exemplary safety concept creates a safe environment for the wide range of medical services that make a significant contribution to maintaining health and strengthening our immune system. In the past few months, many guests have managed to take a break from pandemic woes and forget their fears and worries for a short time.

Think positive!

The Park Igls health resort’s psychologists, Dr Melanie Robertson and Thomas Blasbichler (MA) discuss the issues surrounding positive thinking and positive psychology – and share how we can focus on what’s good in our lives, without losing sight of the reality.

Happiness programmes for body and mind

Moderate exercise, as recommended by sport and exercise medicine (SEM) specialists, has a positive effect on both the physical and psychological immune systems. Dr Richard Kogelnig, Deputy Medical Director at the Park Igls health retreat, explains how exercising outdoors reduces the risk of tumours, brings infection rates down and strengthens the whole body – inside and out. Dr Kogelnig compares being in nature with a symphony of the most varied of sensory qualities. All of which are good for the joints and back, especially when hiking, mountaineering, running or cycling and, as a positive side effect, also strengthen our brain and psyche. In his interview he gives decisive advice on what to pay attention to when choosing outdoor activities and reveals why he is a big outdoor fan himself.

When we exercise

  • Our circulation is stimulated

  • Our muscles are doing what they were designed for

  • Our joints are lubricated

  • The cocktail of chemical messengers circulating in both our body, and – more importantly – our brain, is balanced

  • Our emotions are positively affected

  • Our mood is further enhanced because we have done something good for ourselves

In the new edition of ParkZeit 2021, sports scientist and exercise therapist Maximilian Stangl reveals valuable tips for beginners and popular walking tours around Park Igls. Whether you prefer a leisurely or a challenging tour, if you’re an ambitious or less sure-footed hiker, there’s a route for all fitness levels. The cocktail of nature, air and movement will boost happiness and lead us back to our roots as hunters and gatherers.
