Edipsos is one of the oldest and well-known resorts in the world for its healing thermal baths  There are more than eighty individual medicinal springs with water ranging between 40 to 80 degrees. In recent years, Spa services have been significantly revamped as they offer high quality relaxation, massage and healths and wellness services. The water from the Edipsos springs is extremely hot and has the richest components in Greece.

The springs are rich in active elements such as salts and metals. In addition, they produce great quantities of mud, which are used in masks for the face and other parts of the body. Given the high temperature, the spring water crash onto the rocks during its ascent and it is enriched with elements of the earth. When the bathers bath in the healing waters, their pores take in all of the vital elements, which are indicated for many conditions, such as arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, rehabilitation after an accident and gynecological problems. 

Spas are the country’s national wealth known from ancient times for their therapeutic properties and Greece is one of the richest countries in the world for natural thermal and mineral springs and are found in approximately in 850 different geographical locations and the water from specific springs differs from the ordinary water owing either to its high temperature, or to the presence of rare active components.
