Spas

Other than rare landscapes and special natural beauties, Greece is also endowed with springs with important therapeutic properties. Spas or hot baths are part of the country’s natural wealth found in the periphery, while their therapeutic properties had been known since ancient times. The waters from these springs differ from other common water sources and are characterized as mineral water, either due to the high temperature or the presence of rare active constituents.
Hot springs are the basis for the therapeutic treatment known as spa hydrotherapy (thermalism). Hydrotherapy is highly effective for dealing with multiple ailments such as arthritis and rheumatic disorders. These ailments are traditionally associated with the elderly, and therefore everyone believes that spas are for the “therapeutic” treatment of mainly senior citizens.

However, the beneficial properties are much broader as they also benefit people of all ages. They start by improving appearance (concerns mainly the condition of the skin) and arrive at the more generalized feeling of relaxation and well-being

Fourteen (14) hydro-therapeutic centers (owned by G.N.T.O.) annually treat around 100,000 persons, with 1,400,000 therapeutic treatments (baths, etc), while dozens of other spas operated by local authorities offer modern high-quality services to visitors.In addition, spa centers with state of the art facilities and specialized staff van be found in the majority of the five-star hotels, while other spas can usually be found in Athens or Thessaloniki. These spas provide the contemporary visitor with the relaxation, revitalization and beauty services that he/she requests.
