Wellbeing in seaside resorts
Rehabilitation Centre Ruissalo operates in two beautiful spas in the unique Finnish archipelaqo. Both spas are known for their premium quality spa and rehabilitation services and their seaside location.
Ruissalo Spa is located on the Ruissalo island next to the city of Turku. The former hunting island of the court of Turku Castle is today a well-loved recreational destination for visitors from near and far. The island is a natural park, where one can relax amid breath taking sea views, unique oak groves and charming wooden villas. Nature paths criss-cross the island, passing through beaches, forests and meadows. The Turku city centre, Finland´s former capital and a lively seaside location is full of culture, gastronomy and history.
Naantali Spa is located in the old, picturesque monastery town of Naantali. In the Middle Ages Naantali was known for its abbey, and the town has been a popular tourism and relaxation destination ever since. Naantali’s first spa was opened already in the early 18th century when it was believed that the water in the Viluluoto spring had therapeutic properties that cured illnesses.
Both spas are only a 20 minute drive away from Turku city centre, where you can find the bus station, railway station and harbour. Turku airport is also within a 30 min drive.
In our restaurants and cafés we offer rich buffets, a la carte delicacies and handmade bakery products from our own bakery. Our spacious rooms have beautiful views to the sea or to the parks and there is Wi-Fi and parking available for our guests.
Our pools, saunas and pampering treatments guarantee a relaxing stay. For active guests, there is a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities from yoga to golf.
Ruissalo Spa and Naantali Spa are ideal for rehabilitation or for recovering after an operation – our health care professionals at the rehabilitation centre are there to take care of your wellbeing.
Comprehensive rehabilitation services
Rehabilitation centre Ruissalo is your choice, if you need help with an illness or impairment that negatively affects your ability to work, study or live independently. The goals and length of the rehabilitation, as well as other services planned for you, will be adjusted to your individual needs. The rehabilitation period can be anything between a few days to a longer-term rehabilitation process.
The general program aims to maintain and restore the physical functioning capacity. This option is for individuals with muscle or joint-related illnesses, pain, a stress injury or for those who have undergone surgery or any kind of illness where an intensive rehabilitation period is needed for recovery.
Rehabilitation can also focus on strengthening your own ability to develop your health and working capacity. You might have been diagnosed with depression or a serious illness and could benefit from a psychophysical approach.
We also offer preventive and health enhancing programmes, where you can train safely with professionals. If you are a beginner at training or want to get back on track, together we will find the training that suits your body and mind the best. The programme might include functional movement training which provides strength, mobility and balance, water gym in our 26 degree pool, asahi, yoga, gym training and Nordic walking or biking in the beautiful nature surrounding the spas. We can also provide InBody analysis and aerobic ergometer tests to follow up on your progress.
In every programme our goal is better quality of life, based on individual goals.
