A natural hot spring is the perfect way to soothe your body and soul
Sometimes, you just need to take a hot bath.
But for some true soul- and body-soothing, why not bathe in a natural hot spring? Typically located in places where there is volcanic activity, hot springs can be found all over the world, and these bodies of water offer up some serious health benefits.
Most people find that soaking in these spectacularly blue pools is nothing short of magical.
During a hot-spring bath, the body absorbs trace amounts of minerals such as carbon dioxide, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, and lithium, which each help provide healing effects to different organs and systems in the body. And a study by the Mayo Clinic showed that bathing in a hot spring provides many of the health benefits of exercise while reducing blood pressure.
But the biggest benefit is less about hard science and more about relaxation: Most people find that soaking in these spectacularly blue pools is nothing short of magical.
The water’s warm; all you have to do is slip in.
