Are you in need of a spa day? Go ahead and treat yourself to one. The history of the spa and its healing properties reaches back over centuries. Greco-Roman society took their spas and baths very seriously. The ancient Greek philosopher, Hippocrates, wrote that all ailments were caused by an imbalance of bodily fluids, thus he considered spa-style bathing to be more curative than hygienic.
While our modern day version of the spa has changed, the motivation has remained the same: to cure and heal the body so the individual can lead a happier, healthier life.
