With the seashore within walking distance, and City Walk at the centre, there’s nothing you can’t get in Jumeirah; excellent healthcare being just one of them. Merely few kilometres from where you live, Jumeirah offers multiple healthcare options that’ll have you in the pink of health to experience the best of the neighbourhood.

1. Emirates European Medical Centre

Having spent 16 years perfecting the art of chiropractic in Tuscany, Italy, Dr. Samuel Saukkonen and Dr. Pamela Leader decided to open their world-class chiropractic clinic right at the heart of Jumeirah. Instead of prescribing medicines, they take a more natural route and treat patients using Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation. This practice helps the patient heal faster and provides relief to their pain. They also offer in-house massage services like Deep Tissue, Hot Stone and Sports massage, which are recommended by their certified doctors.
