Taking of the Waters
“Taking of the waters” is the therapeutic use of mineral rich water, or balneotherapy, and could be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to relieving pain, stress, skin woes and more. Soaking in a mineral infused pool or hot-spring need not be solely reserved for a relaxing vacation or a weekend getaway. e Salon and Med Spa offers you the opportunity to gain from “Taking of the Waters”.

Mineral-rich pools offer an array of natural health benefits you may not know about.
Boosts Blood Circulation, Metabolism, & Immunity
When you bathe in the hot mineral immersion pool, your skin soaks in the minerals and your hydrostatic pressure rises. As this process continues, circulation and oxygen flow increases — much like when you exercise. An oxygenated circulatory system is beneficial in keeping not only your heart, but your body’s other vital organs and tissues, healthy and strong. Also it increases body metabolism, including stimulating the secretions of the intestinal track and the liver, aiding in digestion.
Trace amounts of minerals such as carbon dioxide, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, and lithium are absorbed by the body and provide healing effects to various body organs and systems. These healing effects can include simulation of the immune system, leading to enhanced immunity; physical and mental relaxation, the production of endorphins and normalized gland function.
Repeated hot mineral rich bathing (especially over three-to four-week period) can help normalize the functions of the endocrine system as well as the function of the body’s autonomic nervous system.
Relieves Pain, Naturally
If you suffer from chronic muscle pain, arthritis or even fibromyalgia, soaking in a pool of hot mineral rich water can effectively improve pain. An Israeli study found in the journal “Rheumatology International,” shows evidence that hot mineral baths may aid in pain relief and fibromyalgia fatigue. Additionally, when your body is submerged in hot mineral rich water, the buoyancy encourages freer movement by naturally supporting your joints.
Reduces Stress, Promotes Sleep
Excess stress can be remedied naturally by immersing your body in a hot mineral rich pool or bath. The minerals in the water can contribute to the psychological healing process, while heat relaxes tense muscles. Improved sleep can be an added benefit; when you soak in warm water, your body temperature rises, and then quickly cools down when your bath is complete. This body-cooling process can help you relax and fall into a deeper sleep or relaxed state.
