Natural Mineral Spas
The healing powers of soaking in warm mineral waters have been known around the world for centuries. Mineral and herbal baths have been used to relieve everything from sore muscles and joints to arthritis and skin ailments. Today, people continue to travel to bath sites throughout the world, seeking rejuvenation. However, you don’t need to travel around the world to enjoy a relaxing and healing mineral bath. Now you can bring the mountain hot spring right to your backyard with the new Lotus Natural Mineral Spa from The Pond Clinic!
In ancient Rome, soldiers knew about the healing benefits of mineral soaks. They would soak after battle to restore their bodies to full health. Nearly every city in the ancient Roman Empire had at least one bath, which served as centers for bathing and socializing. Though the Romans were known for their “baths,” evidence exists that the Greeks, Egyptians, Mesopotamians and Minoans also knew the benefits of hot springs. The salt and mineral rich Dead Sea is one of the world’s earliest spas. The Roman king of Judea, Herod the Great, and Egypt’s Queen Cleopatra both enjoyed the health benefits of the Dead Sea. Studies have shown that the sea’s essential minerals are effective for treating psoriasis, acne, and rheumatism. Even the early Britains and Celts revered a hot springs goddess whom they called Adsullata.
All of these peoples knew that immersing yourself in warm water dilates skin pores and increases blood flow to the skin and other organs. When this warm water contains therapeutic minerals such as sulfates, sodium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, chloride, silica, the benefits to the human body are magnified. Other benefits of warm mineral soaking can be curative to the lungs when the steam is inhaled. It has also been known to bring relief for rheumatism, gout, paralysis, neuralgia, and skin diseases. Sulfates in the water can also provide anti-inflammatory benefits to bones and joints, and some soakers tout the benefits of ingesting the waters to prevent colds and infections.
The Lotus Natural Mineral Spa is a chemical free, effervescent hot tub that simulates the feeling of relaxing in a natural hot spring. Made with plastic composite Brazilian walnut, the spa’s four pre-fabricated sections are assembled on site, which allows installation even in backyards with limited access! The spa is submerged four feet in the ground and surrounded by natural granite rock walls, so natural sight lines are never obstructed.

The Lotus Spa uses a double direction pump and airflow distribution system that ensures a strong bubbling sensation. We guarantee that with only one soak in our Lotus Natural Mineral Spa, you will feel as if you have been transported to the Banff Hot Springs in the Canadian Rockies, without the expensive airfare!
