Potential Health Benefits of Hot Potting

Close your eyes for a moment and imagine stepping into a very warm, natural body of water surrounded by birdsong and refreshing outside air. Are you feeling relaxed yet? This is just one of the many potential wellness benefits of bathing in a hot spring.

Immersion in a natural hot spring is also known as hot potting, balneotherapy in a therapeutic and complementary health context, hydrothermal therapy and immersion therapy.

These bodies of water can be found in a variety of settings, from naturally occurring outdoors to discharged into pools at spas and wellness resorts.

Because the water originates deep within the earth’s interior, it accumulates minerals on its way to the surface, explains Marcus Coplin, ND, primary care naturopathic physician and director of hydrothermal medicine at the Balneology Association of North America.
