    Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

    I am very much delighted to announce that the 41st World Congress of ISMH will be held 19-21 May 2016 in Bucharest Romania. Since we are going to have our congress annually after the decision at the General Assembly during the 39th Congress of ISMH in Kyoto/Japan in 2014, Brazil was the hosting country of the first annual ISMH Congress that was the 40th of total in Rio de Janeiro 26-28 August 2015.

    After two international balneological gatherings in two continents in Japan and Brazil we are returning back to Europe, the cradle of Medical Hydrology and Climatology. We are excited about our reunion this time in one of the most typical traditional eastern European countries of balneology, Romania. The local organizers are our well-known colleagues; Assoc. Prof. Dr. Olga Surdu as Congress President, President of Romanian Association of Balneology Dr. Constantin Munteanu as Local Scientific Committee President and Prof. Dr. Gelu Onose as Organizing Committee President, they will be happy to welcome you in Bucharest for 41st Congress of ISMH. I thank them in advance since I am familiar with their engagement and enthusiasm in balneology and I believe we all will appreciate their great efforts in organization such a successful event in all aspects. I would also like to express my gratitude to Romanian Association of Balneology ARB (Asociaţia Română de Balneologie) for their support and collaboration.

    This congress of our “Global Association” certainly will reflect the scientific activities, research and developments not only in Europe but also in the whole globe.

    I now am really looking forward to 41st Congress of ISMH and already excited about our next meeting in Bucharest, this time with the motto "Evergreen Balneology; the way ahead!"

    Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

    I am very much delighted to share with you the preliminary program and related information >> of the 40th World Congress of ISMH that will be held 26-28 August 2015 in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.

    You are already informed that we are going to have our congress annually since the 39th Congress of ISMH in Kyoto/Japan last year. Brazil after Japan will be hosting this first annual balneological scientific gathering again as an over sea destination. We are all excited that we will meet this time in Latin America first time ever in the history of ISMH which I think will play crucial role in the recognition of very international character of ISMH. This congress will give an ever-growing impetus to the scientific activities and developments not only in Latin America but also in the whole continent of America.

    I thank the local organizers namely Dr. Marcos Untura Filho, the president of the congress for his great efforts in the organization of the event. Without his engagement and enthusiasm we could not have the change to hold a congress in Latin America. I would also like to express my appreciation and gratitude to ABINAM (Associaçăo Brasileira da Indústria de Águas Minerais) for their support and collaboration.
    The website of the 40th ISMH Congress is open >>

    MinWat2014 - International Multidisciplinary Conference on Mineral Waters: Genesis, Exploitation, Protection and Valorisation - will be held in the Hotel Thermal, in the famous city of Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Czech Republic, 8-11 September 2014.

    The deadline for abstract submission is 1 February 2014.

    Conference will be organised in the form of three parallel sessions:
    • Hydrogeology and hydrogeochemistry — origin, protection and management
    • Bottled water — market and demand, health issues
    • Balneology — balneotherapy and balneotechnics

    At the beginning of each day, during a plenary session the three parallel sessions will be introduced by a series of invited keynote lectures. The main objective if these keynote lectures will be the presentation of typical problems existing in the fields of hydrogeology-hydrogeochemistry, bottled mineral water, and balneology to other colleagues in the audience. These introductory keynote lectures will be relatively easy to follow also for colleagues from other disciplines. By doing so, the experts from, for example, balneology and water bottling will learn about current issues in the field of hydrogeology and hydrogeochemistry, and vice versa, of course.

    PROGRAM >>

    LIST OF PRESENTERS >>

    TIMETABLE >>


    Dear ISMH Members and Balneology Colleagues,

    I hope you made a good health and happy start to 2014. I would like to remind you once again that the 39th World Congress of ISMH, the International Scientific Meeting of Balneology Medical Hydrology and Climatology, will take place in Kyoto Japan, 11-14 May 2014.

    The motto of the Congress reflects the core of our medical praxis; “Responses of the Human Body to the stimuli from Nature”.

    As we all agree that Japan is the perfect choice for the 39th ISMH Congress not only being a unique traditional “onsen” country with vivid scientific balneological research, but also being the country of nature and culture.
    The ISMH Congresses, as being the unique biennial global scientific meeting of medical balneology, hydrology and climatology are increasingly attracting scientists, experts and professionals globally from the medical hydroclimatological and balneological sectors and representatives of organizations and institutions of the countries all over the world.

    We all are looking forward to the congress which will reflect the importance of the scientific research on “health effects of natural stimuli from the nature”; water, mud, climate in general and the “healing environment” of the traditional spa treatments in particular. The main topics of the congress cover main aspects of our field and will be presented in three main sessions. A Symposium is dedicated on “Hot and cold stimuli / Efficacy of radon / Waon therapy / Forest medicine and Terrain Kur / Healthy aging and national finance / Foot baths”. A series of sessions will be held on clinical applications; “Locomotion and rheumatology / Rehabilitation / CO 2 , NaCl, Sulfur Waters / Aquatic therapy / Thalassotherapy and Mud therapy”. And of course a special part for hosting country; with special topics such as “Acupuncture and moxibustion / Acid springs / Sand baths (suna-mushi)”. Nevertheless, oral and poster communications from a diversity of research agenda from all over the globe are expected. Abstracts can be submitted at the website; http://www.ismh2014.com/abstract.html and deadline of submission is 12th of February.

    I along with our Japanese colleagues leaded by Dr. Shigeko Inokuma and Prof. Yoshinori Ohtsuka will be delighted to meet you at our global scientific and social meeting; the 39th one on 11-14 May 2014 in Kyoto, Japan.

    Dear colleagues, practitioners and friends of peloid-therapy!

    Peloids and it’s various forms of preparation and application have been successfully used separately and in combination with other remedies for centuries in clinical work.

    The indications for peloid-therapy, as listed by spa resorts, are amazingly diverse and include skin and respiratory diseases, inflammatory and non-inflammatory rheumatic diseases, gynecological diseases and infertility, general susceptibility to infections and psychological fatigue.

    Peloid-therapy was considered standard medical treatment in earlier internal medicine, pediatric, dermatology, rheumatology, gynecology and orthopedic textbooks but many modern clinicians and scientists are skeptical of it’s efficacy despite it’s general acceptance and support by patients.

    When a patient is interested in the possibilities of peloid-therapy at a spa or hospital, we should be able to answer, competently, the questions, “What is, in fact, peloid-therapy” and “What form of peloid-therapy`s effectiveness has been scientifically proven or at least confirmed through clinical experience?”

    The aim of the conference is to provide the very best possible forum for answers to clinically relevant questions. Which indications are applicable and which are no longer
    pertinent? There will be more than enough time for critical discussion and discussions of new scientific research will be especially welcome with interest.

    At our last Peloid Symposium held in March of 2012 at Clinic Blankenstein, Hattingen, Germany, much new research information was presented. For example, it was previously thought that only the thermal-physical effects of peat were of primary importance. But it has become increasingly clear that peat’s biological effects also play a very significant role in treatment which has lead us to increase research in this direction.

    I’m hoping for and wishing you all an informative conference with lively and interesting discussion among the warm and friendly atmosphere of fellow balneologists and beautiful surroundings of Spa Bayersoien.

    I remain respectfully yours,

    André-Michael Beer

    Natural Mineral waters and climatic resources are part of the cultural heritage of every country’s medical tradition. Hippocrates, “the Father of Medicine”, wrote the “handbook” “On Airs, Waters and Places”, very modern and topical. It dealt with connections between human being and environment and the opportunity of natural means care. Holistic and integrate vision provides four principal implements: hydrothalassotherapy, movement, nourishment and relationship mind/body. So the choice of Congress site is to underline the important and topical Hippocratic teaching about prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, wellbeing.

    X. NATIONAL THERMAL MEDICINE AND BALNEOLOGY CONGRESS and “I. SPA AND WELLNESS SYMPOSIUM” will be held in Güre, on 11th-13th of April, 2013. Thermal medicine and Balneology/Hydroclimatology congresses, which we used to organize in every two years, will be held annually from now on. Because we aim to adopt an up-to-date approach and discuss the scientific developments and researches in the fields of balneology, thermal springs and thermal medicine, which increase rapidly both in our country and in the world. The program of X. National Thermal Medicine and Balneology Congress will serve to this purpose with the presentations and lectures of invited speakers. Presentations will focus on the scientific studies and researches conducted in the fields of thermal medicine and balneology-hydroclimatology. Moreover; scientists, namely experts in their fields that constitute the scientific board, will share scientific information with the participants.

    While the thermal/thalasso cures are traditionally and commonly used for the treatment of various diseases in our country, in addition to thermal centers, spas, where natural & traditional treatments and applications are mainly used with the concept of wellness, emerge both nationally and globally. As the phrase goes, we are experiencing an explosion of “spa and wellness”. From this point forth, we will break new ground via our congress: 1st Spa and Wellness Symposium. Our purpose is to gather all the leading representatives in spa & wellness sector and create and aura of communication and interaction for them. We are aware of the fact that the need for managers, therapists, technicians and similar trained & experienced workers cannot be met. For this reason, we primarily aim to increase the levels of education, information and skill of the workers employed in the spa and wellness sector in Turkey.

    We would like to invite you both to our symposium & congress and we hope to have a successful & fruitful congress for balneology, thermal medicine and spa & wellness sector in our country with your contribution and support.

    The four day conference will be hosted by the Margitsziget Health Spa Resort and neighbouring Danubius Grand Hotel Margitsziget. The conference venue, a BISA member spa and a Royal Spa of Europe, has a long tradition: it was the first metropolitan spa hotel in the world to offer a wide range of spa services.

    The location complements the conference agenda: stretching for 4 kilometres, the carfree island is a protected leafy isle of tranquility and relaxation in the heart of the city. The island’s famous natural spring waters are the basis for a wide range of therapeutic wellness and spa services much sought-after by locals and visitors like.

    Building on the success of the previous BISA conference in 2008 and on feedback from the participants, the 2010 conference will take place in summer and will feature a further conference day to provide sufficient time to address more topics and an additional day for workshops, seminars and hands-on activities.

    Committed to advancing business resources and educational opportunities for spa professionals, BISA will host a selection of presenters from around the world in a wide range of specialities with a focus on spa business, education, architecture, spa treatments, medical spa services, products and equipment.

    At the beginning of the 2000's, a group of industry leaders decided to create and fund a conference modeled in part after the successful format of the not-for-profit World Economic Forum held each year in Davos, Switzerland, where leaders from all parts of the world gather to solve shared problems. Thus the Global Spa Summit was founded. The Global Spa Summit is held annually, beginning on the third Sunday in May. Visit the archive to learn more about the 2007, 2008, and 2009 summits.

    A variety of interactive sessions are on the Summit agenda. They include panel-led discussions, general sessions, small group breakout sessions, and hosted dining conversations. Efforts are made to ensure that all attendees participate at whatever level they choose: observer, speaker, panelist, contributor, questioner, or table host. Standard business attire is recommended for all Summit sessions. For social events, delegates may dress in business casual. Interpreters will be made available for groups upon request in the online registration questionnaire.

    Each year's Global Spa Summit agenda is exciting and unique. The agenda develops over time right up until the Summit and, therefore, features the very issues of the moment, giving the GSS the vibrancy and relevancy that have become its trademark. As invited delegates register, their expertise, interests, and areas of greatest concern are noted. This information, global events, and industry trends are considered as the Summit agenda takes shape.

    Activity in water or aquatic therapy1 has decided advantages for persons with health-related problems resulting in impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions (WHO, 2001). Water based activity is said to aid in the relief of pain and muscle spasm, maintain or increase range of motion, strengthen and re-educate weak and/or paralyzed muscles, improve circulation, lung function, and speech, and preserve and improve balance, co-ordination and posture (Cole & Becker, 2003). While aquatic therapy is particularly popular in dealing with e.g. Rheumatism and Orthopaedic problems (Prins & Cutner, 1999), therapeutic activity in water is also offered for persons with Stroke, SCI, MS, Parkinson and CP (Lambeck, 2001).

    Recreational as well as therapeutic activities are equally at home in water and all ages take part. A water based program provides excellent variety to an exercise program (Congdon, 1997). Aquatic facilities exist at or are used by numerous health care centres, major books have been published on rehabilitation in water and numerous courses are offered on “philosophies“ of aquatic rehabilitation such as Halliwick, Bad Ragaz Ring Method, and Watsu. Nevertheless, in a 20 year review of rehabilitation literature on the use of aquatic therapy for children and adolescents with neuromuscular and musculoskeletal diagnoses, Dumas and Francesconi (2001) state that most of the available articles are case reports and other descriptions of clinical practice. This is also the case when dealing with many other patient groups (Cladera, 2003) with the notable exception of Rheumatology and Orthopaedics, (Geytenbeek (2002).

    Aquatic therapy includes a large hands-on component, especially in neurological and paediatric rehabilitation. In these populations treatment is varied and complex, and aquatic therapy is usually only a minor component. Nonetheless, this might have an important place in long term rehabilitation where the effect of any treatment is smaller in measurable terms.
    Quantifying the effect of aquatic therapy has, as a consequence, not gained sufficient attention.
    Water has an attraction of its own and swimming itself is a popular activity inducing self management and adherence. In the age of evidence based practice it seems appropriate to ask the question “What exactly is the outcome of systematic aquatic therapy for persons with disabilities?” Does aquatic therapy improve function, prevent regression of function? Might the persons who can perform little other activity independently “feel better” resulting in an increased quality of life despite no quantifiable physical changes?

    1 Aquatic therapy: Movement or exercise in an Aquatic (water) environment with an intended therapeutic outcome (systematic exercise therapy during immersion in water resulting in a therapeutic outcome through stimulation of short and long-term adaptive (physiological) mechanisms in persons with a deranged biological system).

    Teaching strategy:
    In this 2 week intensive course the evidence base (Sackett et al, 2000) for aquatic therapy in Pulmonary, Neuromuscular, Rheumatologic and Orthopaedic diseases and disabilities will be reviewed. Groups of specialists will analyse and discuss the following:
    1. Concepts of Aquatic Therapy
    2. The direct and long term goals of rehabilitation in the populations in question.
    3. The results of a systematic review of the evidence on aquatic therapy using the Cochrane strategy.
    4. Dry land treatments with similar goals.
    5. Field tests for continuous evaluation of treatment in both water and on dry land.
    6. Contra indications of aquatic therapy in these populations.
    7. The economic (cost/benefit) implications of aquatic therapy.

    Knowledge and competences acquired

    Knowledge:
    The course participant will have a good quality overview of the research base for aquatic therapy in the goal populations.

    Competence:
    The participant will be able to:
    - Perform a systematic review of a research article and classify the evidence.
    - Consult in a treatment team on the advisability of the use of aquatic therapy for individuals from diverse populations and develop treatment guidelines for these persons.

    Registration
    A maximum of 20 students will be admitted to the course with priority given to students from the participating Universities. When sufficient space is available other students (or professionals) can be admitted. Academic credit can be arranged for this course. The final selection is made at the home University.

    Course Organisation

    Participant profile:
    Allied Health professionals who are completing the final degree needed to enter the profession and those specialized in AT. Each student will be assigned a mentor upon admittance. The course will be taught in ENGLISH.

    Participant preparation:
    The participant will access written and multi-media material via the web prior to the course. They will be asked to prepare a review of several articles from one area population to be dealt with and present during the intensive course. Literature in the native language when not English will be of particular interest.
    The course period 13 (10 full) days:
    The course will be divided into mini-modules each dealing with one population. During each module presenter(s) will handle the 7 points in the strategy above. Time will be devoted to organisation and a refresher of the Cochrane systematic literature review strategy and overview of research methodological techniques. Practical sessions in water with actual patients will be part of each module as well as student presentations

    Post course and evaluation:
    The participant will make a comparative study of several cases in a single population based on own treatment experience and compare the results to the evidence in a written report. The participants own presentations will also be evaluated.

    Fees
    Students from the participating Universities will be asked to provide a fee of 250 Euro. These students will then receive a substantial travel allowance to and from Belgium, complete room and partial board for the entire period of the course. Other students will pay a fee of 1000 Euro. This fee includes insurance, registration as a guest student in Leuven, room for the entire period, lunch and field trip fees.

    About the Venue:
    Zalakaros is located in the south-western part of Hungary amongst beautiful and tranquil settings.
    The area is surrounded by vineyards and fruit orchards, forests, grooves, gently sloping hills and fishing ponds all creating romantic atmosphere. The diverse region offers several bicycle and trekking routes to those, who would like to have an active holiday.
    The tiniest city of Hungary gained fame by chance in 1967, when an oil prospect drilling resulted in a nearly 96şC hot thermal spring coming up from 1000 meter. These circumstances provided the base of the re-introduction of the customs of the ancient Roman bath culture that once flourished in Pannonia. The certified medical water proved very effective in the treatment of chronic arthritis, chronic gynaecological, dental and rheumatic diseases, and prior to and after orthopaedic surgeries, neurosurgeries and operations.
    In this small section of the Balaton Region several places of cultural and natural interest can be found within 50 km distance; the Little Balaton Natural Reserve, the archeological findings of Fenékpuszta from the Roman era, the bird ringing station, the buffaloo reserve of Kápolnapuszta, the outdoor village museums of Vörs and Galambok.
    Besides the fascinating conditions, the hospitality and politeness of the locals makes your Zalakaros stay perfect.
    Hidden in the heart of Zalakaros, surrounded by a ‘Paradise garden’ the Hotel Karos Spa presents 221 room of the distinctive Spa Superior design and various offers to small and big families or individual guests.
    All the different services of the Spa Medical and Health Center and the ‘Alma’ Spa-Wellness World – wellness, fitness, medical and Spa services – are available for the guest, who seeks leisure and regeneration.
    In the island of perfect relaxation and pampering, at the Hotel Karos Spa everybody – adults and children as well – can forget the troubles and rushes of the world.

    First time in continental Europe!

    Description:
    Ai Chi, a combination of T’ai Chi, Shiatsu and Watsu, is an excellent continuation of the Halliwick balance activities. In general it is done in groups, using music to enhance relaxation in combination with breath control and balance. It is another way to work with groups of patients, which is recognized not only in Japan but also in e.g. the USA and Brazil. For the first time in continental Europe, Mr. Konno will teach an Ai Chi workshop.

    This workshop will provide in-depth instruction in the use of Ai-Chi techniques in a clinical setting for orthopedic, neurological and rheumatic impairments. The emphasis will be on extensive instruction and practice time in the pool.

    Objectives:
    At the completion of this module participants will be able to:
    - Understand the physiological immersion effects on relaxation and their therapeutic applications
    - Ai Chi techniques in a clinical setting for patients with orthopedic, neurological and/or rheumatic impairments
    - Follow the simple Ai Chi progression, the Wall Ai Chi, Ai Chi Ne and be introduced to the concepts of moving with nature.
    - Experience the trunk stability movements with guidelines on proper pelvic mechanics during Ai Chi

    Jun Konno Creator of Ai Chi, is one of Japan's a foremost swimming coaches and fitness consultants and the President of Aqua Dynamics Institute (Japanese chapter of AEA/ATRI).
