There is no question that WATER is what
has made our city. WE MUST PROTECT IT by installing sewers.
During this term we've been able to increase the sewers
service to 75% of our town!
Water: we drink it, soak in it, and live
because of it!
Soak in it…
Have you ever relaxed into a hot bath? Maybe poured in some mineral
salts for extra pleasure? Well, that’s a pale imitation of the “real
thing.” For centuries, people throughout the world have “taken the
waters” by soaking in hot mineral springs. The reason? Well, it
feels really, really good. And it’s good for you too.
Ever heard of balneology? Maybe not. It’s the scientific study of
the therapeutic benefits of natural mineral waters. And it’s
especially advanced in Europe and Japan, where balneologists have
studied the healthful effects of geothermally heated mineral waters
for many years. Here are a few things they’ve discovered:
• Soaking increases your blood circulation and cell oxygenation.
(That’s the rejuvenating effect.)
• Soaking stimulates your metabolism.
(That’s the revitalizing effect.)
• Soaking helps to balance many of your body’s natural systems.
(That’s the rebalancing effect.)
• Soaking can reduce pain and increase mobility.
(That’s the feel-good effect.)
But you don’t have to take the scientists’ word for it. You can
conduct your very own scientific study. Just visit one of the Spas
in our town and slip into the water. It’s that easy.
Not only can you soak in our water, you can drink it too. That’s
because we have underground cold water springs that are just as
pure as our hot water springs. Think of it as hot and cold running
water. Instead of turning a faucet, though, we pump the water
directly out of the earth.
The cold water is just as pure as the hot water. And it’s delicious
too. So delicious, in fact, that our municipal drinking water has
won gold, silver, and bronze medals over the last few years in an
annual international water competition (which made some towns in
Europe pretty envious).
You can’t taste this water anywhere but here.
Hot or cold, our mineral water is unique. It has no smell, unlike
lots of other mineral waters. It’s crystal clear too, never
discolored like some other waters. And it has its own special
“feel.” Some call it satiny. Some describe it as silky. Everybody
calls it delightful.
The Geothermal Miracle
Why is the hot mineral water in Desert Hot Springs unlike the water
anywhere else in the world? The secret is hidden deep in the earth.
But it owes something to the sky too.
Here’s what happens. Rainwater and snowmelt descend from nearby Mt.
San Gorgonio and seep through the desert sands deep into the ground.
Some of that pristine water, naturally filtered by its trip through
the sand, finds its way into cool water pools. Some of it flows much
deeper below the earth’s surface, where it comes into contact with
some very hot rocks. The heated water expands and rises through the
rocks into geothermal pools.
All of the hot-water Spas of Desert Hot Springs pump their mineral
waters directly from underground geothermal pools. The temperatures
of the waters can vary from 100° Fahrenheit to more than 180°
Fahrenheit. (Don’t worry, though. If it’s too hot, we just mix it
with some of the cold mineral water until the temperature is just
The Spa Experience
There’s something very special about soaking in our therapeutic
mineral waters. Something we want you to experience.
We’ve got a lot more to offer too. Like massages (every kind you can
think of). And body wraps (with clay and mud and seaweed and lots of
other healthful stuff) And facials (with minerals and herbs and
aromatherapy and more).
Whatever you’re looking for in your own spa experience, you can
discover it in our town, California's Spa City.
There really is something special about the water!
Face it. It’s our water.
There’s nothing like it.
Nowhere else in the world can you find water like this. It’s
perfect. And perfectly natural too. So pure you can drink it. So
warm you can soak all day.
