Sanasearch is Switzerland’s pioneering platform that integrates a comprehensive system for booking a variety of therapeutic services including massages and other health treatments. At the heart of this innovative platform is a robust booking system engineered using Node.js, coupled with a user-friendly website developed with Django. This efficient integration is facilitated by gRPC, a communication framework that ensures swift and dependable interactions between the website and the booking system.


Expanding its reach, Sanasearch incorporates external booking systems such as Swica and Pharmed Solutions through REST APIs, enhancing the spectrum of services available while improving user access to diverse healthcare options. The platform is equipped with a powerful search engine built on Elasticsearch, enabling users to effortlessly locate services by location and other preferences. Additionally, the website’s interface, designed with Vue.js, offers straightforward navigation, significantly enhancing user experience.


Sanasearch places a high priority on security and user convenience, featuring a reliable authorization system and a simplified sign-up process tailored to user preferences. Therapists benefit from a customizable booking plugin for their own websites, which is user-friendly and quick to implement. After nearly two years of development using cutting-edge technologies like Python, Django, and Vue.js, Sanasearch has succeeded in creating a secure, accessible, and efficient platform that brings therapeutic services closer to people across Switzerland.
