Why Pagosa Springs, Colorado and Why their Hot Springs?
What are Hot Springs?
A Hot Spring is a natural body of water that is heated geothermally. Hot Springs are all over the world such as in: Honduras, Canada, Chile, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Romania, Fiji and the United States, as well as many other countries! Even though Hot Springs are scattered all over our beautiful planet the hot springs here at Pagosa Springs, CO are the most unique of them all because we have the world's “Deepest Geothermal Hot Spring," which was named by Guinness Book of World Records in 2011, which had a maximum measured depth of 1,002 feet!!!
Did You Know: Hot springs are the world’s initial spa. The term "spa" starts from the town of Spa, Belgium, made famous for its hot springs.
Why are Hot Springs beneficial to us?
Musculoskeletal problems: Advantageous for swollen joints, arthritis, muscle fatigue, ligament damage, and many more.
Nasal Congestion: The hotness of the water mixed with sulphur makes for a winning blend to combat nasal congestion, common cold, allergies, or even chest congestion.
Circulation: The sodium bicarbonate and calcium found in mineral hot springs help with the natural circulation of the body which can lower blood pressure.
It is certainly almost impossible to be stressed while being submerged in a natural Hot Spring and having a stressed state of mind is proven for high blood pressure, depression, and most importantly the release of cortisol. Once Cortisol is released in stress-induced doses, there are sudden changes to our mood, our immune system, and our metabolism; So don't stress :)
Magnesium: assists with a clear complexion (healthy looking skin)
Potassium: eradicates toxins and promotes healthy skin
Sodium: reduces inflammation in swollen joints
Sulfur: aids with respiratory problems and skin inflammations
