PRESS RELEASE | May 2017
FOCUS ON GENDER MEDICINE: VIVE LA DIFFERENCE
Park Igls launches new medical programmes
Men may indeed be from Mars, and women from Venus, but surprisingly gender medicine was only established in the 1990s. At Park Igls, Europe’s foremost health retreat and recognised pioneer of Modern Mayr Medicine, gender-specific medicine plays an increasingly important role in successful treatment. Men and women present different symptoms and health issues, and for this reason gender-specific programmes have been introduced, including the Men’s Medical Check and the Modern Mayr Medicine for Her modules.
Although comparatively new, gender medicine is making a significant contribution to preventative healthcare. Early gender physicians have discovered major differences in the heart: men’s are larger, women’s beat faster and each reacts differently to the ageing process. They have also determined that women take longer to digest drugs due to a slower enzyme action in their digestive tract. Park Igls believes that gender medicine will become the norm with different drugs replacing the non-gender specific medication currently prescribed for men and women – hence the introduction of gender-specific diagnostic modules.
Why wait for months to see a specialist for a medical check or screening when Park Igls has the facilities and expertise to offer diagnosis within a few days? The diagnostic modules and programmes are run by a highly trained, professional medical team, including Professor Germar-Michael Pinggera, one of Europe’s most eminent urology and andrology experts, working alongside equally distinguished radiodiagnostics specialist and uroradiologist, Professor Ferdinand Frauscher.
The Men’s Medical Check: the one-week module is priced at €2448 and includes a physiotherapeutic muscle function test, expanded blood tests including hormone status, urinalysis, lung function test, oxidative stress measurement, ultrasound of abdominal organs and vessels, ultrasound of brain-supply vessels, thyroid, prostate and testes, urological examination including consultation, resting and exercise ECGs. This module must be taken in conjunction with the Mayr Basic Programme priced at €907 per week.
Modern Mayr Medicine for Her: book the one-week Mayr Classic module priced at €1171 supplemented by a selection from the a la carte menu of medical services for women: breast ultrasound, spider vein and varicose vein treatments, hormone screening, endocrine assessment and consultation, osteoporosis prevention, anti-wrinkle hyaluronic acid injections, autologous plasma treatment, microdermabrasion and ultrasound facial, relaxation and detox treatments and a microampere bio facelift. Tailored exercises including pelvic floor exercise class, yoga, pilates, dance workout, legs, bums & tums are available. The Mayr Classic module includes all the components of the Mayr Basic Programme, five 25-minute partial massages and one liver compress with beeswax. Each of the a la carte medical services for women is priced individually.
The Mayr Basic Programme includes entry, exit and medical examinations, individually tailored Modern Mayr cuisine diet plan, activity and lifestyle coaching, group lectures and presentations and full use of Park Igls’ extensive facilities.
