Pay attention to the sanatorium of the good old Europe. And do not be afraid of the cost of treatment there. As a rule, it is quite acceptable, especially if you do not be lazy and learn about all the conditions. And do not forget, a two-week stay (minimum for an effective result) in any of the European countries also provides a lot of bonuses. As: a high level of service, familiarity with the sights and expanding horizons, interesting acquaintances and amazing nature.
