Soaking Guide

Soaking in water naturally helps relax our bodies and relieve stress. The organic blend of 13 minerals found in our water provides a synergistic effect that promotes your body’s self-healing forces and stimulates your natural regulatory mechanisms.

Some of the benefits of thermal water soaking include a deeper night’s sleep, less joint soreness with ease of movement, a return from burnout, and an increase in energy and vitality that will last days after departure. Our water’s high sulfur-sodium minerality gives your body a warm glowy feeling from the rich mineral content.
