Rikli concept of well-being
The healer Arnold Rikli transformed Bled into an advanced spa resort in the mid-19th century. He relied on elements of nature to make people feel better – air, water, sun, light and recreation. Today one could say he advocated plenty of exercise in fresh air, moderate but quality diet and invigorating sleep. Still, his methods were now and then very rigorous. At Sava Hotels Bled, we try to present Rikli's basic concepts through advice for a "Rikli Day": rising at sunup, cleansing drinking of fresh Bled water on an empty stomach, barefoot walks to improve blood circulation, light and healthy meals, swimming and sunbathing, exercise and hikes in the fresh Alpine air. Živa Wellness offers concrete treatments designed according to Rikli's healing method!
