I love going to Lava Hot Springs in Idaho. It's about 2.5 hours from my house and a great way to take a mini vacation and find time to recharge. My daughter calls it her vacation as well. We often spend hours in the cold and hot springs which has also brought us closer together. What is your way to Recharge, Refuel and Reclaim your health and wellbeing?
Reduces Stress and Promotes Deeper Rem Sleep
Stress relief doesn’t have to come in the form of a pill. Excess stress can be remedied naturally by immersing your body in a hot-spring water 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, then quickly cools down when your bath is complete. This body-cooling process can help you relax and fall into a deeper sleep.
Relieves Chronic Pain, Naturally
If you suffer from chronic muscle pain, arthritis or even fibromyalgia, soaking in a pool of hot-spring 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-spring water, the buoyancy encourages freer movement by naturally supporting your joints.
When applied directly to the skin, mineral-rich hot-spring water can help to naturally relieve certain skin conditions. The high silica content found in hot springs can smooth and soften dry, rough skin. Similarly, the medicinal properties of the water's sulfur content can relieve uncomfortable eczema and psoriasis symptoms.
