...aims at the cure of various illnesses...

NATURAL SPRINGS are the thermal, hypo-thermal and cool waters containing active ingredients indicated for the cure of various illnesses.

THERAPEUTIC TOURISM aims at the cure of various illnesses and the invigoration of the human body through the use of curing waters. Therapeutic tourism forms part of health tourism.

THERMALISM is a group of organised activities complementing each other, with thermal water being the most predominant element, designed to prevent and/or preserve and/or restore human physical and/or spiritual euphoria and health.

Greece has innumerable natural thermal springs, most of them known since antiquity. Many of them flourished during the Roman period when they turned into cosmopolitan centres, attracting many people for spa-therapy and entertainment. Bathing in thermal springs at Asklipeia was very popular as far back as the 13th century.

Gushing out warm therapeutic water from 3,000 metres for many centuries, the hot spring of Sylla is located on the premises of Thermai Sylla Hotel in Edipsos, Evia. In the Loutraki of Pella, the water temperature is exactly the same as the human's body temperature, 37C. There are 80 springs officially recognized by the state as therapeutic.

The above information and the photos was provided by the Thermal Springs Municipalities and Communities of Greece, which is a Thessaloniki-based Local Government body Greece-wide.
