English abstract:Nature and its elements, such as sun, water, weather (all considered regenerative) are asserted in medical discourses as appropriate destinations for the vacations time, a worker's right legally established in 1943 by the CLT (Consolidações das Leis do Trabalho). This paper deals with vacation trips to thermal springs by analyzing one specific travelling destination: Poços de Caldas/MG. Based on a set of travel guides and magazines of scientific dissemination published in the decades of 1930 and 1940 we aim at analyzing this thermal spring as a place of healing and amusement. Thus, we analyze the role played by body education in the prescriptions of such travelling destinations. © 2016 Colégio Brasileiro de Ciências do Esporte
