Going to thermal baths is a great Italian tradition dating to ancient times, and in this way we still follow the ancients’ example (and their surprisingly modern advice on the matter). In fact the search for psychological and physical well-being together with the need to free oneself from the stress of the hectic pace of everyday life, has become not only the desire but the ever more widely-felt need of those who make use of the many centres available just for ths purpose.
In Italy thermal baths and associated centres are able to satisfy every need (and pocket!) There are luxury hotels and pensions, from the hotel overlooking the crystal blue sea to those immersed in the woods and tranquillity, to those near the most beautiful cities of art. The thermal baths are places where one can dedicate time to oneself alone, where one can enjoy the benefit of massages, treatments and therapies aimed at restoring energy to both body and mind thanks to the close contact with nature and the professionality of the personnel whose only desire is the client’s well-being.
This does not mean enjoying hydrotherapy, massages or aesthetic treatments within the centre alone, but also opening oneself to savour the typical products and the beauty of the place one finds oneself in: a healthy diet contributes to regenerate both body and spirit, while walking in the open permits one to recharge oneself with the positive energy emanating from nature.
