What Are The Advantages and Disadvantages? 

One major advantage of this method is that it is a very safe procedure. Specialists who practice SMP are professionally trained. The ones with superior technique go through more extensive training, which is rather costly.  

The trainee receives private, individual training and is mentored by the instructor to ensure perfection in the final results. Just like in any field where an individual wants to achieve the highest standards, this accumulation of knowledge and intensive training takes time, and the results speak for themselves.  

The disadvantage to SMP is that this training is not regulated. The amount of training that the SMP professional chooses to undergo is not mandated by any organization in the industry. It is up to the client to choose the SMP practitioner carefully to make sure that he is treated by the best in the field.  

Bathing in Greek and Roman times

At Serangeum, an early Greek balneum (bathhouse, loosely translated), bathing chambers were cut into the hillside from which the hot springs issued. A series of niches cut into the rock above the chambers held bathers‘ clothing. One of the bathing chambers had a decorative mosaic floor depicting a driver and chariot pulled by four horses, a woman followed by two dogs, and a dolphin below.

These Aegean people utilized small bathtubs, washbasins, and foot baths for personal cleanliness. The earliest such findings are the baths in the palace complex at Knossos, Crete, and the luxurious alabaster bathtubs excavated in Akrotiri, Santorini; both date from the mid-2nd millennium BC.
