Rikli concept of well-being
In mid-19th century, healer Arnold Rikli turned Bled into a progressive health resort. He focused on the town’s natural properties – the fresh air, the water, and the sunshine – for better well-being. He encouraged plenty of exercise in the fresh air, high-quality vegetarian food in moderation and refreshing sleep. You can follow Rikli’s health programme during your stay. Living the Rikli lifestyle means getting up before sunrise, drinking fresh Bled water on an empty stomach, walking barefoot in the meadows covered with morning dew, enjoying light meals, swimming, sunbathing, and taking lots of walks in the fresh Alpine air. In Živa Wellness Centre you can also discover treatments adapted to Rikli’s methods of healing.
