Hot Springs, Mineral Springs, and Bath Houses

Hot Springs and Mineral Springs Spas offer an on-site source of natural mineral, thermal or seawater used in hydrotherapy treatments, while communal Bath Houses offer hydrotherapy and wellness services not necessarily relying on mineral waters. 

The resulting benefits of each are the backbone of “balneotherapy”, defined by the Collins English Dictionary as “the branch of medical science concerned with the therapeutic value of baths, especially those taken with natural mineral waters”.

Balneotherapy as a field of study is truly ancient and has been an accepted part of education in medical schools worldwide, particularly in Europe and Asia.

The practice has thrived most in regions where ample water sources exist. Click the icons below () to browse our favorite destinations to take the waters.  Some of our favorites are rustic springs carved into riverbanks and mountains, others are public bath facilities (which may not necessarily use mineral waters), and stiill others are beautiful resorts taking advantage of the availability of mineral waters in the pools and soaking rooms.  Whether you like rustic, natural, luxury or full service, you’ll love the water at each of these hot springs and mineral springs locations.
