A glimpse of the past:
Eternal Beauty has been the quest of all women since the beginning of time. The first known concept of a spa first dates back to antiquity at a place called Asclepio on the island of Kos in Greece named after the God of medicine Asclepio.
The Asclepio was the first medical hospital of the world. It was here that people would come from all parts of Greece and the world to cure all ailments. The doctors, considered then priests, would say that when something would disrupt a part of the mind, body and soul the person would suffer from unbalance and thus become ill. At the sanctuary therapeutic art was taught and practiced. Based upon the illness or discomfort prescriptions also included; a diet, walking the grounds through nature (exercise in tranquility), hot baths in the springs near by which had mineral water or in tubs, listening to music, the study of philosophy and attending the theatre. Once balance was restored the individual was considered cured.
At ancient Olympia in the Peloponnese in Greece, the birth place of the Olympic Games, athletes prepared for the games at designated areas on the sacred grounds. They would exercise and after get massaged to bring the overworked muscles back to their homeostatic state. All of these elements of treatments used throughout time coupled with famous legends of history’s beauty secrets such as Cleopatra’s bathing in milk which would exfoliate and soften the skin, and various oils used on the skin to moisturize, promote and preserve beauty are still being practiced in today’s Spa World. In modern times the “Spa” as a facility was mastered in the Far East and the concept spread throughout the world. Today we can all take advantage of these beauty and health sanctuaries to maintain and preserve our beauty and body.
