In Ancient Greece, sick people would pilgrimage to the temple of the Greek god Asclepius in Epidaurus, where they would go through purification rituals and therapeutic massages administered by priests. They would be dressed in white robes and olive wreaths and would fall asleep on a special bed where the god Asclepius or his sacred snake would visit and cure them in their dreams.
