Salutotherapy encompasses therapeutic strategies and methods in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of physical and mental disorders that are primarily aimed at the preservation, recovery and strengthening of health. It is an ancient concept in medicine, but has temporarily been forgotten. However, both conceptual and economic considerations suggest the growing importance of salutotherapeutic approaches. Salutotherapeutic methods include various techniques from the areas of psychotherapy, psychoeducation and learning therapy. The main areas of life such as education, work, interpersonal relationships and sexuality are considered. This article reviews salutotherapeutic approaches.
