In ancient world Vontaze Burfict Bengals Jersey , there were no hospitals, no injections and other ?charms? of modern life. How did people take care of themselves then? Let's talk about the medicine of Ancient Rome, or, to be more exact, Roman baths.

In III ? II centuries BC there were almost no doctors in Rome. They thought that the best way to cure diseases and stay healthy was to make regular visits to baths, or therms, which is translated as ?hot.? In fact Carlos Dunlap Bengals Jersey , it was not just a fashionable tendency, it was a real cult. They visited baths every day, some patricians could even spend most of their time there.

This was a place for washing, training Tyler Eifert Bengals Jersey , discussing, negotiating as well as painting, writing, playing music, partying and even sleeping. With no exaggeration, one could spend the whole life in a bath.

In the end of the V century AC there were almost 900 baths in Rome, serving a population of about 2 million. Any emperor who wanted to acquire his people's love built free public therms. The rich ones had their own baths Geno Atkins Bengals Jersey , lavishly decorated and adorned with marble, expensive wood, silver and gold.

Palestre. A visit to baths started with some physical exercises. That's what palestras were used for. The exercises were not that energetic, and, as a rule A.J. Green Bengals Jersey , not aggressive.

Massage and even depilation treatments were also done here (despite the pain it caused, depilation was rather popular with Romans).

Visitors could bathe Malik Jefferson Youth Jersey , relax and enjoy the cultural programme: poets, musicians, actors and dancers were there to entertain them.
