A long history of care

Tattoo or not tattoo?

Did you know that Ötzi is a window to the Neolithic world of medicine and health care? No, then come to Vent and discover your history!

The Austrian Alps ski resorts are particularly interesting for history lovers and those interested in the history of natural medicine. The discovery of Ötzi reveals that Neolithic man was not only remarkably fit to wander over the mountains in the bitter snow but also that he probably belonged to a society with an advanced health care system. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? It is now clear that the practice of tattooing was not just for decorating the skin and is far from being a modern-day phenomenon. In fact, the lines etched into Ötzi’s skin – about 61 in all – reveal that Neolithic society probably used tattoos to cure ailments. It also had enough knowledge about the body’s meridians to target the most stressed parts of the body and used plants to alleviate inflammation and sickness. Therefore, it’s hardly surprising that the Post Vent offers wellness – it’s in our blood. You too may follow in Ötzi’s footsteps on your hiking or skiing holiday at the Natur & Alpinhotel and explore your roots.
