Hot Springs and Mineral Springs

Hot Springs and Mineral Springs Spas offer an on-site source of natural mineral, thermal or seawater used in hydrotherapy treatments.  The resulting benefits 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.
