More Detail About Our Baths:

Why is this area nude?

Since the beginning of bathing history, clothing was prohibited inside the tubs for sanitary reasons. Unnatural chemicals and toxins from the clothing would be drawn out by the intense heat of the water and absorbed into the pores and skin. It was also said that a bather wearing clothing in this area was trying to conceal an unhealthy condition that was worth hiding.

* To promote the cleanest waters for our guests and to stay true to ancient bath traditions, clothing and/or any form of bathing suits are prohibited inside all locker room baths.  Each guest must shower prior to using any of the baths or pools.

Heated Bath Spa Pools – Event Tubs

Soaking inside heated waters helps open up pores, improves blood circulation of white blood cells, and reduces aches or pains. By adding aqua-jets, the thermal waters are now specifically aimed to massage muscles. Each jet targets different pressure points throughout the body, increasing circulation and digestion, while soothing any body aches and treating discomfort caused by certain diseases.

Cold Plunge Pools

Contrast hydrotherapy is the alternation between hot and cold baths to achieve the combine benefits of differing water temperature immersion. Cold water improves the circulatory system as well as aids in lymphatic drainage. Surface blood vessels constrict and drive blood back into the organs. Short spurts of drastic temperature changes help tighten up the skin, builds up the immune system, and also help rid the formation of cellulite.
