Maharishi AyurVeda Health Centre Bad Ems
In 1992 Lothar Pirc, along with his wife Dr. Karin Pirc, founded the Maharishi AyurVeda Health Centre Bad Ems by invitation of the former spa director and CEO of the Staatsbad Bad Ems. Lothar Pirc is the owner and CEO of the Centre that now has over 90 employees. In 1996 the Health Centre received private clinic status.
The Health Centre
The Maharishi AyurVeda Health Centre is located in the historic building of the Health Resort of Bad Ems. Formerly, this was the summer residence of Emperor Wilhelm I. The healing power of the 17 thermal springs once attracted kings from all over Europe to this famous spa town.
