La Paloma Hot Springs & Spa, New Mexico

Do you think that the most important element to the efficacy of a hot spring is the contained material?

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

Today I introduce a hot spring in terms of gravity.

White Sands National Monument

It is not snow-covered.

White Sands National Monument

The vast field of white sand dunes composed of gypsum crystals is, just out of the world.

There are 5 private baths and all of them are straight out of the ground.

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

A bulletin board shows temperature of the day.

Lobby

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

Footbath

This is one of the smallest bathrooms.

Small Tub

A pastel-colored wall painting looks impressive.

Small Tub2

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

Large Bathroom

This is one of the largest bathrooms.

Large Tub1

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

Large Tub2

Through the hole, spring overflows into the river outside.

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

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.

From the Tub

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