Jitka Hrebikova is a medical travel agent who’s reviving the Czech Republic’s Bohemian spa traditions with avant garde medical treatment and wellness escape offers. Two hours west of Prague, the thermal-spring town of Karlovy Vary combines deep relaxation and traditional spa techniques with cutting-edge medical treatments for weight loss, and stem cell therapies for skin rejuvenation.
Located within a lush forested valley, the town feels remote and hidden. Tiers of striking 19th century art nouveau, baroque and renaissance structures in buttery yellows and coral pinks hug the perimeter of the town, adding rich luxury and a fairytale backdrop to decompress in. Grand colonnades mark the drinking water fountains along cobblestone paths, perfect for strolling through and replenishing over sips of mineral-rich spring water.
Though close enough for a day trip from the Czech capital, to fully experience the town’s whimsical beauty and reap the benefits of the many health therapies on offer, immerse yourself in a private spa that combines traditional Czech hospitality with ultra-modern remedies that soak away aches, soothe the mind and smooth the body.
While the sheer number of spas, treatments and programs available here can be daunting, Jitka Hrebikova, owner of Boho Travels has created customized itineraries and full-service wellness excursions, that combine sightseeing with relaxation, health and beauty.
Born and raised in Prague, Hrebikova was immersed in the healing spa cities of the Czech Republic from a young age alongside her parents and grandmother, where her passion for wellness and healing holidays grew. Now the owner and operator of a full-service medical travel agency, Hrebikova is West Bohemia’s expert in high-end medical wellness escapes.
She is paving the way as the first and only company that has an exclusive contract with Czech regenerative medical specialists to offer an anti-aging treatment that regenerates and rebuilds the tissue from the inside using stem-cell technology. Working alongside scientists and a team of regenerative medicine specialists, her clients are seeing significantly smoother wrinkles after treatment. And if your looking to lose a few inches, gain muscle and increase your fitness level, she has you covered. Through her Boho Angel program in partnership with Czech luxury spas, this intensive seven-day fitness, nutrition and relaxation program gets your heart pumping, pounds dropping and skin glowing.
