The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.

 

Water is a powerful component of a complete wellness experience. And the therapeutic properties of water can be found in many states in the country. Arcadian spring water, ingested, can be used to treat analgesic and stomach issues. Springs to treat skin and chronic diseases can be found in Evia, Peloponnese and Kavala. Thermal springs facilities throughout Greece offer first-rate amenities and medical supervision.

Seawater, along with seaweed and sea mud, additionally offer unparalleled therapeutic properties, and those elements are incorporated into facilities across the country. In fact, natural products and a healthy diet have a longstanding tradition in Greek history, rooted in the belief that a healthy and balanced body radiates strength and beauty. Natural Greek products, like olive oil and veggies, are fundamentals of life, wellness and the elixir of youth. All of this is inherent in the culture and pervasive for locals and visitors alike.

 

The way of life alongside the Mediterranean climate balance the mind, body and soul, and Greece is the preeminent destination for combining relaxation, health and wellness. Plan your wellbeing journey through Greece.

Thermal Spas to Consider

 

Pozar Thermal Baths

Located about 1.5 hours from Thessaloniki, locals have long known the healing properties of these springs, with both hot and cold springs located next to each other. The location in the heart of nature coupled with the unique bathing experience creates a perfect environment for rest and relaxation.

 

Aidipsos Thermal Springs

The most famous spa-town in Greece in northern Evia is a geological wonder, with waters reaching high temperatures that are quite beneficial to the human body. More than 80 springs are effective at alleviating numerous conditions, including arthritis, tendonitis, vessel diseases, inflammation and more.

 

Kaiafas Thermal Spa

Located in Ilia, this area occupies both the spa facility and a forest of the same name. The two springs are recommended for musculoskeletal diseases, like back pain or sciatica; skin diseases; gynecological disorders; and systemic, communicable and malignant diseases.

Mazi Restaurant Review

My mom and I recently dined at Mazi, a Greek restaurant in West Reading, Pennsylvania. We were in town for a family event and decided to take advantage of the lovely early fall evening by enjoying dinner outside. The restaurant is popular, so we called right when they opened to make a last-minute reservation. Thankfully, they had availability for outdoor seating.

A Taste of Greece

Prepare your taste buds for the trip of a lifetime in Greece. About 100 Greek products — from wines, cheese and fruits to honey and oils — earned a Protected Designation of Origin from the European Union, and the country’s most beloved dishes include Greek Choriatiki salad, tzatziki, souvlaki and moussaka, with its layers of eggplant, potato, minced meat and bechamel. And those are only a few of the many highlights.
