Whether you find yourself at a commercial hot springs resort or in the wilderness soaking, hot springs have many different benefits. The higher temperature of the water contains more dissolved minerals that can be absorbed through the skin and benefits the body in many ways. Many people claim that the hot springs can assist with allergies, respiratory problems, joint pain, and other ailments. Along with health benefits, they are a great spot to relax and they also promote sleep. Colorado offers hot springs all across the state. Some are commercially owned and contained similarly to swimming pools, while others are hidden in nature and are more secluded.
