The general therapeutic assumption made in the art and science of healing in the Asclepieia was that active contemplation and reflection on the beauty and harmony found in masterpieces of architecture, sculpture, and painting brought harmony and health to the individual. Enjoyment of the true, the good, the beautiful, and the divine are all important factors for elevating and enhancing human consciousness.

Quote from the spa book
My life right now is filled with words and pages about spas. While editing the chapter on the history of spas and spa cultures, I was inspired by the following quote. I wonder how different our world would look today if we took the same approach to arts and aesthetics.
