Well-Being ..... a state characterized by health, happiness and prosperity
Travel .... to go from one place to another; journey
Well-Being Travel ... is a travel organization whose mission is to educate travel professionals, consumers and travel suppliers in the growing trend of both wellness travel and medical travel.
Wellness Travel is the desire to promote, maintain and improve one's health and well-being while on vacation or traveling for business.
Medical Travel is when a consumer travels away from home either domestically or out of the country to receive medical, dental or cosmetic procedures. With changes in today's healthcare, consumers are looking for quality care at lower costs, and it is important that they are educated and know their options.
