"When we get to the end of the pandemic, when the economy recovers at least in part, people will realize even more than ever how important it is to take care of their health on a daily basis. Today, it is especially obvious that only a strong immune system can help you survive, and live a quality life. Health prevention, boosting the immune system will become one of the priority areas,” says E77 strategist and spa market expert Eglė Rukšėnaitė.
The importance of strengthening our resistance to infections is also emphasized by global wellness professionals. For example, Integrative Medicine Expert, Professor Marc Cohen says: “There is evolutionary evidence that all mammals use heat, in the form of fever, to trigger the immune system to produce white blood cells and antigens to fight viral and bacterial infections. Humans have also been using heat – such as saunas – for prevention and cure, throughout history. A visit to sauna can help alleviate psychological symptoms when coping with coronavirus. I actually think there's a huge scope for including saunas, steamrooms and hot bathing into hospitals, care-homes and public facilities. I really think that when we come out of this, the health system could really be much more integrated with conventional medicine and wellness practices.

At present, all the most luxurious and exclusive wellness and beauty brands could be found in UAE, such as Four Seasons, Six Senses, Mandarin Oriental, and many more. Nevertheless, there is arising need within the country to educate the society to choose a healthier lifestyle. Those residents of the UAE and the surrounding countries, who already understand the importance of preventive health care, currently travel to European medical and wellness centres and medical destination spas, as inside the country such services are not on offer.
Dr Layla Almarzouqi agreed with Egle Ruksenaite‘s insights that a preventive healthcare system should be developed inside the country. Rehabilitation and wellness centres, medical destination spas could provide health education and raise awareness about importance of preventive healthcare; and emergence of such centres should be supported by the UAE Dubai Health Authority.
