Marlo Productions in conjunction with the Desert Hot Springs (DHS) Hoteliers, invite you to the 7th Annual “Healing Waters Tour”. This one of a kind tour is a great experience for those who like to relax and rejuvenate.
DHS is one of the few places in the world that has a dual aquifer with both hot and cold water coming up from the earth. Underneath this small town, flows the healing mineral water that you can both drink and beneficially soak in. The Sparkling, clear mineral springs have been nourishing bodies and minds since the early 1900’s when they were first discovered by Pioneer Cabot Yerxa*.
Balneotherapy is the ancient art of immersing oneself in thermal mineral waters; utilizing the minerals in thermal springs to improve health and wellness primarily through soaking, steaming and inhalation. Minerals found in the DHS healing waters include Silica, Iron Oxide, Calcium, Aluminum Oxide Magnesium, Sodium, Sulfate, Chloride Bicarbonate, Fluoride and Sodium Chloride. Balneotherapy enthusiasts believe these minerals help alleviate a number of ailments including arthritis, chronic skin diseases, urinary conditions, chronic metallic poisoning, burns, including sunburn, cardiovascular support, dandruff, dry skin, and many other common ailments.
There are over 20 exclusive spa resorts in DHS offering rich, healing, therapeutic, mineral spring water. A number of the spas have been multi-award winners for service, amenities and high standards. There are many types of resorts to stay at, such as the Moroccan Fantasy, the old world Hacienda, clothing optional, dog friendly, Mid-Century Modern and the 1940’s Two Bunch Palm which is filled with rich history. From small four room hotels to big hotels with multiple pools, there is a hotel for every size, taste and budget.
The spa tour is the one night annually when the public can come into these very private boutique spas.
