The benefits of bathing

Balneology is the scientific study of the therapeutic benefits of naturally occurring mineral waters. In Australia, this science is not very well known, and is even less seldom practised. However, throughout Europe and Japan, balneology and hot springs therapy is very much a part of routine medical care. Medical prescriptions are given by licensed doctors for the treatment of a wide range of conditions, and bathing in mineral waters as a part of preventative medicine is widely recognised and encouraged.

Hot spring soaking has a deep and far reaching tradition in North America, starting with the indigenous North American tribes who considered hot springs to be 'power spots' in nature. Native cultures universally have utilised natural waters for healing, purification ceremonies, sacred gatherings, and tribal meetings.
