Six Must Visit Thermal Hot Springs

Dunton Hot Springs provides a stunning setting to soak away stress.

While minerals are undoubtedly gaining popularity in the spa industry, their benefits have been enjoyed for years. In fact, the concept of bathing in hot mineral springs for relaxation and wellness dates back to ancient times. The geothermal-warmed and mineral-rich water from the earth’s crust provides numerous benefits to the mind, body, and soul.

A soak in a hot mineral spring can help improve certain skin conditions and muscle pain while providing a place for spa-goers to relax and socialize. “Hot spring locations are now more accessible to a wider range of the population, especially when enhanced with a spa built around it,” says Khursheed Irani, director of global training and development at Subtle Energies. “With more education and awareness, their popularity is growing outside of communities that already have a bathing and hot spring culture.”

Here are some of the hottest mineral springs in the U.S. and abroad where you can soak up all the benefits mineral springs have to offer:
