Calistoga Mineral Baths

Hot springs have afforded countless health benefits for centuries, and have been used to cure maladies ranging from arthritis to indigestion. Some mineral-bath locales are even specially oriented toward the treatment of a particular condition or bodily system.
For instance, mineral baths rich in sulfur have been credited with relieving nasal congestion and other respiratory symptoms, and mineral baths saturated in sodium bicarbonate and calcium are perfect for improving the condition of those suffering from hypertension, heart disease, or other circulation-related issues. In addition, studies have shown that taking a soak in hot mineral spring waters actually decreases the body’s tax on the endocrine system; this is accomplished by literally ‘melting away the stress’ and alleviating the adrenal glands’ need to pump out ‘stress relieving’ hormones.
