La Paloma Hot Springs & Spa, New Mexico

What is the efficacy of hot springs?

Is the most important element the inclusion?

Actually, only a little inclusion can be absorbed through our skin.

Today I would like to introduce a hot spring in terms of gravity.

Hot Spring Inn with Pale Blue

Truth or Consequences has several hot springs that are upwelling from the ground.

Among them, you will find an especially beautiful hot spring inn.


The building partly painted with pale blue is the old inn.

The rate is $7 for 30 minutes’ soak and $12 for a hour.

Water Temperature

There are five private baths and all of them are upwelling from the ground.

Depending on amount of water provided, water temperature of each tub differs between 96 and 106 degrees.

The white board shows temperature of the day.


The lobby surrounded by private baths has many leafy plants and even foot baths against the wall.

Let us look into one of the smallest bathroom.

Small Tub

A pastel-colored wall painting looks impressive.

The shallow tub is cobbled with small stones, and filled with spring that has slight mineral odor.

Large Bathroom

Here is one of the biggest bathrooms.

On the wall of the dark room, there is a hole with sunshine.

Through the hole, spring overflows into the river outside.

At the center of the tub, there is a hanging rope from the ceiling.

Big Tub

It is no exaggeration to say zero gravity when you hang down the rope.

One of efficacies of hot springs is ascending force.

It is not peculiar to hot springs, but if you soak up to your neck in water, the gravity on your body decreases to one-tenths.

You can feel even more relaxed if you hang down a rope at the same time.

Indeed, it is simple but an eye-opening experience that enhances one of hot springs’ efficacies.
