What does Preventing Rehabilitation means?
The work-related stress, the sedentary lifestyle and the fast-paced everyday life exhaust the body and the mind of modern people, cause minor or major health problems, and gradually reduce the quality of life.
Headaches, pain in the joints, poor sleeping quality, loss of libido, gastrointestinal and nutrition disorders are some of the usual complaints we hear every day.
Many times, the only thing we do when facing these dysfunctions is to accept the situation: “I learn to live with my problem” or, even worse, I become tangled up in endless meetings with doctors and examinations.
The above finding applies to many people irrespective of age, educational level or financial standing, a large share of whom is, by default, led to illness. PALLADION, staying abreast of international practice, designs special Preventive Rehabilitation (PREHAB) programmes.
Our objective is to inspire, train and empower participants, so that they take control of their own health. We don’t have to accept a negative situation when we can reverse it.
The cutting-edge technology, high-level scientific knowledge and specialised preventive rehabilitation team of PALLADION is our ally.

History - Mythology
Since the Antiquity, Arcadia has been regarded as a paradise on earth. The first testimonials of an incessantly happy «Arcadian» life are lost in the mists of time. According to the myth, life was born here.
Greek mythology tells stories about how the goddess Athena accidentally caused her beloved friend, Pallas, to be mortally wounded while they were training in the arts of war. Inconsolably grief-stricken over her death, the goddess recreated a wooden likeness of her friend, which was thereafter known as the Palladion, and became a sacred symbol of good fortune and harmony for thousands of years.
The Romans called it «Arca Deorum», which means the Ark of God, as an expression of their admiration. In the recent Greek history, Arcadia has been the «Ark» for the revival of the Greek State. The liberation of Greece started from Arcadia.
The Arcadian ideal was expressed in the Renaissance with the mysterious phrase: «ET IN ARCADIA EGO» which means “I lived in Arcadia too.
Rich tradition, pure, healing nature, traditional picturesque villages, monasteries, hermitages and ancient states.
Tripoli, the capital city of Arcadia, is built at an altitude of 650 m., on the verdant plateau of Mantineia, on the slopes of the beautiful Mainalon mountain. It is the administrative centre of the Region of Central Peloponnese. Tripoli is a bridgehead for visiting the whole of Arcadia, as well as the adjacent Peloponnesian prefectures of Messinia, Argolida and Laconia.
Our Centre is located at a distance of only 157 km from Athens, 203 km from Patras and 87 km from Kalamata.
The distance from Athens via the new Athens-Kalamata National Highway is travelled within 1 hour and 30 minutes.
