And what would be bathing without heat … yes it would be cold … and this is where geothermal is so connected to the comfort of being in the water, relaxing and the overall wellbeing.
From ancient times indigenious people all around the world made use of natural hot springs to bath, wash and relax. Taken to the next level by Romans and their bathing culture, today hot springs in all parts of the world are enjoyed by people of all ages in facilities that range from a natural hot pot, an abandoned bath tub, to the fancy spa temples of this world.
To see the different approaches to using geothermal hot springs and the set up is fantastic … in the end it is about enjoying what the earth has to offer and what better way to be closer to the natural resource of geothermal than a geothermal bath.
