Your health and well-being

We all know the hamster wheel women have to deal with

Your desk is full, your partner needs attention, the kids’ birthday party needs to be planned. There is never enough time to focus on your own health, and so you try to squeeze a few doctor’s appointments into your schedule. And that is how the tour from one medical specialist to another begins. Time for a detailed, comprehensive consultation? Maybe you’re thinking of moving beyond conventional medicine and considering complementary medicine? More and more you feel like breaking out of your every-day routine, to take some time to look after yourself. To find a place where physicians will look after you, so you can stay fit, mentally and physically!

Get away from your daily routine to meet kindred spirits

And this is it: The place where women can find a refuge from every-day life. A place that offers everything that’s good for women. A place with an interdisciplinary team of physicians, specifically trained in women’s needs that only focuses on women’s health. Since we subscribe to the motto “everything under one roof”, there’s no need for elaborate tours of extensive medical facilities. Preventative healthcare or simply a wellness vacation finally feel like a relaxing getaway in a hideaway where women can spend some time among kindred spirits. What tops it off is the pure nature of the Kamptal valley, a source of power and strength in the Austrian Waldviertel region.


When you want to feel understood

A place where women can feel understood and taken care of: At la pura, our team of physicians and therapists will support you individually according to the insights of female-specific gender-medicine, from the very important preventative healthcare and strengthening of life energy, weight regulation, stress relief or healthy aging. At la pura, you will find modern medical concepts, conventional as well as alternative medicine, but also naturopathy, physical beauty applications and aesthetical medicine. We make use of anything that’s effective. Of course the entire la pura-team is trained in female-specific issues.

Determining one’s needs for a better quality of life

The determination of gender-specific needs and new medical concepts based on these contribute to the preservation or restoration of a woman’s health and better quality of life. In cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna, the latest findings of gender medicine are linked holistically with proven complementary medicine methods. At la pura, this broad range of methods is implemented with an exclusive focus on women’s health and preventative care.


Scientific consultant of the la pura women’s health resort

Univ. Prof. Dr. med. Alexandra Kautzky-Willer, recognised medical specialist and professor for gender medicine at the Medical University of Vienna, developed the la pura med concept on the basis of the University’s gender medicine findings especially for women. She is one of the first Austrian professors who specifically deals with women’s needs in the context of gender medicine.

Individual consultation by our team of physicians

Right at the beginning, one of our physicians will set aside plenty of time for an individual conversation, because every woman is different. The woman’s biography is discussed in detail, risk scores and specific biomarkers are analysed, women-specific “problem values” such as vitamin D and the iron metabolism are determined, and a glucose tolerance test may be carried out, because even if a woman is (pre-)diabetic, her sober sugar values can frequently still indicate normal values. If a woman wants to deal with the stress in her life, an individual stress profile using a heart-rate variability measurement makes a lot of sense.
