Our Hot Mineral Water Springs
Mineral Water Resorts of Desert Hot Springs, CA
Soak in it…
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 earth.
The cold water is just as pure as the hot water. And it’s delicious too. In fact, our municipal drinking water has won gold, silver, and bronze medals over the last few years in an annual international water competition. Our unique natural waters originate from the pure snow run-off of the nearby San Gorgonio Mountains. That makes us a modern day city that has no need to filter its tap water… So, leave your bottled water home and drink up!
Balneology is 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.
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 effect)
- 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 feel-good effect)
A Brief History
Desert Hot Springs’ amazing natural hot mineral water and cold water aquifers were first discovered in modern times by homesteader Cabot Yerxa, who called the site of the wells “Miracle Hill.”
Though Yerxa was unaware of it at the time, Desert Hot Springs’ natural hot mineral waters originate from the Desert Hot Springs Aquifer, which continues to be heated by ancient geothermal forces thousands of feet below the earth’s surface.
