Geothermal Pools: Soak Up The Benefits

Posted on  September 27, 2013

Man invented the wheel. Man invented the slinky. Man did NOT invent spa therapy. Nature pioneered spa therapy in the form of hot springs, which have provided man with a soothing sanctuary for ages. Unfortunately, geography discriminates; only certain regions of the world have been chosen to champion this blissful interaction between man and nature. Fortunately, for people visiting and living in the West Coast, the wine country town of Calistoga is ripe with geothermal activity and invites all to experience the benefits of a mineral-enriched soak.


Enter the Sunburst Calistoga Hotel and their geothermal hotel pools. The Sunburst doesn’t wait for the hot spring to surface; rather, The Sunburst digs deep to tap the hot spring where it’s the hottest… the earth’s mantle. As the bubbling H2O is pumped up to civilization, it cools from 180 degrees to around 102 degrees, where it makes its first stop at the hotel’s jacuzzi. It’s then fed into the wading pool, maintained at around 92 degrees, before reaching the hotel pool at a cool 83 degrees. The Sunburst is such a destination that even the water travels well.


Why are The Sunburst’s geothermal pools considered therapeutic? The answer lies in mineral content. The human body requires minerals to regulate everything from metabolism to hormones to general health. Instead of downing supplements, geothermal pools allow minerals to be absorbed through the skin much more efficiently. By method of osmosis, the body takes only what is needed. It’s science. The benefits of soaking in the mineral goodness include maintaining wellness, revitalizing the skin, calming nerves, detoxifying the body system, and refreshing oxygen levels. Commonly found minerals include silica, sulfur, sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron, as well as essential trace minerals such as lithium and manganese.


Book a trip to the Sunburst Calistoga and hit refresh. Enjoy the spa as nature intended.
