Dr Reinhard R Bergel

Dr. Bergel Bio

Born in Salzburg, Austria and raised in Bavaria, Germany, Dr. Bergel was exposed to some of most distinctive health spas in the world in his formative years. His studied in the Austrian-German health care systems, which recognize and appreciate the therapeutic value of Spa Kur programs, influenced his academic and professional pursuits in spa therapy. Dr Bergel received a master’s degree from the University of Cologne in Physiotherapy, a master’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of California in Los Angeles specializing in Cardiovascular and Orthopedic Rehabilitation, and a Ph.D. in Exercise Science from the University of California-Berkeley.

When Dr. Bergel first established a Spa Physiotherapy practice specializing in Injury Therapy, Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Prevention, he discovered one of his biggest challenges was finding qualified staff in the United States to perform European based spa therapy treatments. Responsive to training needs for his own business and well as the growing need for spa therapy education in the United Sates, he began to develop education programs with leading experts from Europe, providing hands-on education, videos, workbooks, and seminars in:

Kneipp Therapy
Manual Lymph Drainage


He has published numerous articles as seen on https://h-e-a-t.com/home/library as well as the
comprehensive SPA ENCYCLOPEDIA compendium. https://h-e-a-t.com/home/Encyclopedia

He founded and operated in 1985 the International Spa Kur Therapy Training Institute.

Dr Bergel has operated health spa clinics and physical rehabilitation centers for over two decades. He is the founder of H-e-a-t. Inc., which provides equipment, products, supplies, education, training, and consulting services for spas and clinical health centers throughout the world.
