MINERAL SPRING WATER
Soak in it…
Have you ever relaxed into a hot bath? Maybe poured in some mineral
salts for extra pleasure? Well, that’s a pale imitation of the “real thing.”
For centuries, people throughout the world have “taken the waters” by
soaking in hot mineral springs. The reason? Well, it feels
really, really good. And it’s good for you too.
Ever heard of balneology? Probably not. It’s the scientific
study of the therapeutic benefits of natural mineral waters. And it’s
especially advanced in Europe and Japan, where balneologists have studied
the healthful effects of geothermally heated mineral waters for many years.
Here are a few things they’ve discovered:
• Soaking increases your blood circulation and cell oxygenation.
(That’s the rejuvenating effect.)
• Soaking stimulates your metabolism. (That’s the revitalizing
• Soaking helps to balance many of your body’s natural systems.
(That’s the rebalancing effect.)
• Soaking can reduce pain and increase mobility. (That’s the
But you don’t have to take the scientists’ word for it. You can
conduct your very own scientific study. Just visit one of the Spas of
Desert Hot Springs and slip into the water. It’s that easy.
Not only can you soak in our water, you can drink it too. That’s
because we have under-ground cold water springs that are just as pure as our
hot water springs. Think of it as hot and cold running water.
Instead of turning a faucet, though, we pump the water directly out of the
The cold water is just as pure as the hot water. And it’s delicious
too. So delicious, in fact, that our municipal drinking water has won
gold, silver, and bronze medals over the last few years in an annual
international water competition (which made some towns in Europe pretty
You can’t taste this water anywhere but here. But sampling it for
yourself is simple. Just visit one of the Spas of Desert Hot Springs
and then pour yourself a glass of water. It’s that easy.
Hot or cold, our mineral water is unique. It has no smell, unlike lots
of other mineral waters. It’s crystal clear too, never discolored like
some other waters. And it has its own special “feel.” Some call
it satiny. Some describe it as silky. Everybody calls it
The Geothermal Miracle
Why is the hot mineral water in Desert Hot Springs unlike the water anywhere
else in the world? The secret is hidden deep in the earth. But
it owes something to the sky too.
Here’s what happens. Rainwater and snowmelt descend from nearby Mt.
San Gorgonio and seep through the desert sands deep into the ground.
Some of that pristine water, naturally filtered by its trip through the
sand, finds its way into cool water pools. Some of it flows much
deeper below the earth’s surface, where it comes into contact with some very
hot rocks. The heated water expands and rises through the rocks into
All of the hot-water Spas of Desert Hot Springs pump their mineral waters
directly from underground geothermal pools. The temperatures of the
waters can vary from 100° Fahrenheit to more than 180° Fahrenheit.
(Don’t worry, though. If it’s too hot, we just mix it with some of the cold
mineral water until the temperature is just right.)
