General concept of medical tourism is not new. Healing centers in ancient times combined prayer and medicine. Believing that illness was caused by the spirit world, healers implored the gods for assistance. Patients seeking relief traveled to these temples, Greece and Rome developed their own temples. In about 600 B.C. the Greeks created healing temples for Asclepius, their god of medicine. SPA towns may be considered an early form of medical tourism.
