Roman/ Solus Per Aqua
Solus Per Aqua or health through water was the origin of the term spa. As the Roman Empire ruled though Europe, hot springs lent healing properties to the people and armies of the era. Mineral pools spread through the region were frequented by emperors and royalty and prized for their ability to heal the body, the mind and spirit. Waters rich in Magnesium and Bicarbonate alleviated the war weary soldiers of the Roman army. Many of these historic bath houses still exist today and willingly offer their medicinal properties to the modern traveler. Grab your spear, don your loin cloth and let these ancient minerals flood your body and find your own Solus Per Aqua.
