Ischia is the queen of hot springs in Campania, the island of eternal youth, rich in springs, muds, fumaroles, and sands, as well as eight thermal-mineral reservoirs, offering relief for all kinds of health problems. The volcanic nature of the island has in fact given its inhabitants hundreds of heat sources and sulphureus spring pools, which in turn encouraged the establishment of age old spa facilities. The earth releases its waters and vapours everywhere, regenerating both body and mind. Smooth skin, silky hair, toned muscles, and an extreme sense of well-being: in Ischia this is simple.
For example, at the thermal gardens in the pools with temperatures between 28°C and 40°C, one can enjoy either mud balneotherapie or solar-sea therapy. If exercised in a rational fashion and under constant medical control, these therapies are capable not only of restoring physiological balance and improving overall health conditions, but may also alleviate specific pathologies.
The hot springs of Forio, like those throughout the island, are considered among the most effective in Europe. Their therapeutic effect is based on two principal factors: the considerable richness and variety of mineral salts and the beneficial effects of the high water temperature.
