Balneotherapy is the treatment of medical conditions by bathing in naturally occurring heated mineral water. It is an ancient practice that has been used throughout history for the treatment of many diseases. Although contemporary medicine has been slow to establish the scientific basis for the benefits of submersion in mineral-rich hot springs water, a long history of use strongly suggests medicinal benefits. It is widely recognized that a tranquil hot springs soak provides relief from the pain of stressed muscles and tired joints. The complex effects of hot springs minerals on the skins glands and blood vessels is the likely explanation for the numerous subtle benefits that are reported by those in tune with the hot springs way of life.
Modern balneotherapy is most often used for muscle and skeletal disorders, including osteoarthritis, joint pain, psoriasis (including associated psoriatic arthritis), and swollen spine. Balneotherapy has also been suggested to improve conditions associated with heart disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, insomnia, headache, muscle soreness, injury, low back pain, spinal cord injury, muscle spasms, stroke, acne, dermatitis, eczema, and many other conditions.
