Before you leave for Budwig Center in Spain, please note the following points that will hopefully help you to have a successful journey.
Once you decide to come to our clinic, please inform us by email and send us your confirmed travel plans, then we will book you in and add you to our calendar. We will make the necessary arrangements for you to have a medical consultation and other assessments on the first day you arrive, which will take place before you start the program.
You will have a Vega test and GSR scan first thing in the morning on the first day of your program, so here are some important instructions to keep in mind:
You will have a medical consultation and a second opinion with the oncologist if requested. Therefore, please bring your appropriate medical history records such as PET, CT, MRI, bone scans, and x-ray imaging (we do not need the images themselves, just the reports). Also, a recent blood test and the report of your cancer tumor markers and D-dimer levels (ideally no more than three months old).
We do not have a laboratory to do blood tests in the clinic. The only imaging we do is with Thermography, and the laboratory near the clinic takes at least 2 days to give results of blood tests, and sometimes even more, depending on the type of test requested.
On the weekends, you are free to explore beautiful Spain. We have several brochures on hand that outline the different places you can visit and see.
You can, of course, look on the internet beforehand so you can plan what you would like to see.
In Torremolinos, there is a beautiful park to walk through called Molino de Inca. There’s no shortage of things to do on the Costa Del Sol, and Torremolinos is right in the heart of the area, making it easy to visit other popular local towns such as Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Marbella, and more.
All the nearby hotels have kiosks with several brochures advertising all the activities in the area such as Flamenco dancing, bus tours, Alhambra Palace in Granada, Sea World, Picasso, and other museums, etc.
The easiest place to go to do grounding and breath work is of course the beach! We can show you on the map the easiest route to the beach from your place of lodging.
Spain uses 220volt, so computers will work fine with an adaptor that will allow you to connect to the wall socket but without a transformer, if you bring appliances that use 110volt, these will break upon plugging them in.
Bring a laptop computer, and you can connect to our Wifi at the clinic and in each apartment. We usually like to load on a few comedy movies, the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), course, and other important presentations on your computer to look at while you are here.
If you have signed up for a treatment plan that goes from Monday to Friday, you will finish on Friday between 14.30 and 15.30. You might feel too tired or rushed to book a return flight on that same day so we recommend booking your return flight from Saturday morning onwards.
From May to October the weather is usually warm and sunny. From the middle of November to middle of March the weather can get down to 9 degrees at night 16 during the day with the risk of rain.
We have 325 days of sunshine but that still leaves 40 days of cloud and rain. Please bring rain equipment and proper clothing for the November to March period.
The only currency that is useful to bring is Euros. If you bring any other currency you will have to go to the exchange office and change it.
You are better to purchase Euros at your bank in your home country before coming or exchange at the airport, this will also be useful so you can pay the Taxi fare from the Airport and pick up food, etc., upon arrival.
Credit and Debit cards are accepted. Master Card and Visa are the two that work well.
PLEASE NOTE: Discovery, American Express cards, American Express Traveler’s checks, Diners are NOT used in Spain.
We request a down payment to register. The balance can be paid with cash, credit card or bank transfer.
Please inform us what final payment arrangements you would like to use before coming.
We provide some basic foods for you such as seeds, nuts, coconut oil, olive oil, tahini, Himalayan salt, baking soda, cottage cheese (Quark), flaxseed oil quinoa, buckwheat, oatmeal, etc.
We can lend you a hand blender and coffee grinder if these items are not already in the apartment where you are staying. However, you will need to purchase fresh fruit and veg and other food items that you prefer to prepare your meals. There is a grocery store and a farmer’s market right next door to the clinic.
We strongly encourage you to come with a family member or a friend as a caregiver unless you are strong enough to care for yourself.
There is no additional cost for bringing a guest companion. If your guest would like to receive some health care such as the Vega Test, emotional healing, massage, and so on, we can arrange it, but sessions must be scheduled early upon arrival.
If you need the prices for these therapies before arriving, please email us beforehand. Your guest will be free to explore Torremolinos and the surrounding towns or do other things in the mornings when you are receiving therapy. Thenen you will have afternoons to spend time together and go out.

BUDWIG CENTER – Telf: 664 174 281
NOTE: Our Cancer Center is a daytime clinic, and we do not have our medical and regular staff working 24/7. Therefore we do not accept bedridden patients, very weak, and in constant need of medical attention. It is always best to have a family member or a friend come with you who can provide company and moral support, even if you are in a generally good condition.
Some find they are somewhat overwhelmed by the trip, all the new things they need to do, dealing with Spanish-labeled products and the language in general outside the clinic, etc. The Budwig Center staff speaks English, French, Spanish, and Russian. We will do all we can to help and make your stay as comfortable as possible.
