The European Spas Association is an umbrella organisation representing 20 members from 19 European countries.
The European Spas Association's global objective is to promote spa medicine in Europe as a curative and preventive approach using natural remedies, rehabilitation techniques, physical agents, education in lifestyle...to maintain and enhance the health status of patients and guests, promote well ageing and favour quality of life.
In that respect, ESPA has developed this unique e-Library exclusively dedicated to evidence-based balneology. It aims to disseminate high-quality information towards health professionals and others engaged in basic research and clinical care, public health, health policy developement, or related educational activities as well as professionals from the spa industry. Contrary to other databases that return thousands of references, the ESPA e-library is a friendly tool that concentrate only on relevant, valuable and comprehensive information selected by the ESPA scientific experts.
