Since type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition, it is paramount to promote a genuine Therapeutic Patient Education (T.P.E.), upon recommendation of the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.), in order to acquire and maintain abilities that allow the patients to optimally manage their lives with the disease.
And as we firmly believe that the only efficient therapies are the ones that involve the patients directly, we based our diabetes programme on the renowned Vichy programme, which has shown great success in France. It is a self-management and educational programme designed to support people living with type 2 diabetes.
The main goals of Vichy programme are following :
Besides these T.P.E. sessions, our diabetes programme includes a daily Trilogy of “Signature” hydrotherapy treatments, which are based on the medical expertise of the French queen of water town, Vichy. This trilogy is made up of following care treatments : a relaxing Hydro massage bath, a mineralising Phyto-mineral Mud wrap and Vichy shower with 2 hand massage.
In order for you to understand better what type 2 diabetes and its prevention are all about, you will also be offered a lifestyle consultation with a specialist at the beginning of your sessions. The expert will determine with you the current stage of your disease and discuss your particular symptoms and personal needs in terms of heath. Potential side effects of the illness and their treatment will also be mentioned (e.g.: heart diseases, vascular disorders, eyes conditions, etc.).
Every time you visit us as part of your diabetes programme, you will meet either a dietitian or a personal trainer. The dietitian will help you establish your personal diet including tips for you to put into practice at home, while your personal trainer will advise you on the best type of sports activity for you. These consultations will also be a chance for you to spot potential bad dietary habits or unhealthy patterns of your personal lifestyle.
During your sessions, you will have the opportunity to try out our different high-tech treatments aimed at improving your quality of life as a type 2 diabetes patient. As part of the programme, you will discover alternatively the Body Sculptor®, which treats adipose fat storing areas with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy ; the Redustim®, which provides micro-pressures that allow a whole-body drainage. You will also enjoy a relaxing massage everyday.
As far as physical activity is concerned, you will be proposed to practice Aqua gym, so that you can find a way to practice sports.
When in our resort, you will enjoy a lunch which is consistent with your preferences but will also incorporate the learning from diabetes programmers. This will enable you to think about different food groups when back at home. Therefore, you will be invited to our Dietetic restaurant that offers a large variety of healthy gourmet dishes. The different menus were formulated with a team of dietitians. Our motto could be: less fat, less salt, but even more flavor!
