The Myth

ASKLEPIOS GARDEN takes inspiration from the Greek demigod Asclepius, the ‘God of Healing’. Asclepius, son of Apollo, found the secret of healing by watching a serpent carry a medicinal leaf in it’s mouth to another injured serpent, healing the snake immediately. The Asclepian Rod, featuring an entwined serpent, has been a symbol of healers since the ancient Greek times.

Asclepian healing temples and their practitioners, became very popular through-out Bronze-age Europe, spreading as far north as Scotland. The temples were a place of rejuvenation and healing & would have been very similar to todays spas & baths.

Our logo represents the serpent wrapped around the rose. The serpent being an ancient symbol of rebirth, renewal, and regeneration, due to the shedding of its skin. The rose, a symbol of beauty, love, & the healing powers of the natural world.
