The Thermal Springs / Hot Springs of Lesvos

The thermal springs of Lesvos have been well known since ancient times. They are regarded and used as valid therapeutic treatments for all kinds of ailments and are therefore prescribed by doctors.

They are recommended for the treatment of chronic rheumatism, arthritis, sciatica, myalgic pain, gynecological problems, skin conditions etc. The mineral waters are also inhaled for chronic catarrh, catarrh of the pharynx and the Eustachian tubes.

Mineral and thermal baths were evident in Greece around 500 B.C. The early Greek baths were built near natural hot springs or volcanoes. Greek celebrities and the elite would meet at these natural hot springs to exchange philosophical views and treat physical ailments. Plato considered anyone who did not know how to swim as uneducated. Hippocrates (460-375 BC), believed to be the founder of medicine, recommended hydrotherapy for the treatment of disorders such as jaundice and rheumatism.
