We love spring whether it is hot or cold. We love being one with nature by soaking in natural hot springs. And the different types of hot springs have different effects on our well being.
According to britannica.com, spring, in hydrology, opens at or near the surface of the Earth for the discharge of water from underground sources. Spring is a natural discharge point of subterranean water at the surface of the ground or directly into the bed of a stream, lake, or sea.
A low-temperature simple spring has 25-34°C water temperature. They have less than 1 gram of radical carbon, salt, and other mineral elements. Simple spring’s water is quite warm and good for neuralgia and rheumatism, also it is perfect for long term rehabilitation. A low ingredient, mild hot water of simple spring is good for children or elderly people. The alkaline springs with 8.5 pH + are included.
Salt springs have more than 1 gram or liter of mineral elements, which makes them next to simple springs. Sodium chloride, or salt, is the main ingredient which adheres to the skin. Bathing in salt spring water prevents drying and the evaporation of sweat. It is recommended for people with dry skin or people and people who have trouble warming up.
If the water contains more than 1gram but less than 5gram of salt it is a weak saltine spring if it contains less than 10gram of salt, then it is a Salt Spring. If it contains more than 10gram of salt, it is a Strong Salt Spring. It is characterized by being well warmed.
Carbonated hot springs have less than 1 gram of radical carbon and other mineral elements in each liter. Though this spring is carbonated, it is still close to the simple spring water. Most of these carbonated springs are colder than the usual hot spring, which is why it is good for people with heart disease, blood circulation disorders, and neurological disorders.
These springs are characterized by carbonic bubbles adhering to the body while bathing. Carbon dioxide vaporizes when warmed, making it more important than temperature.

Acidic water bathing can be a safe and effective therapeutic for Refractory Atopic Dermatitis. But you should be advised by your physician before diving into an acidic spring.
Acidic springs can be classified into 5 categories. A low pH value indicates acidic, while a high value indicates alkaline or basic.
• Acidic pH 3
• Weakly acidic pH 3-6
• Neutral pH 6-7.5
• Weak alkaline pH 7.5-8.5
• Alkaline pH 8.5+
Acidic hot water has natural sterilizing abilities and has the effect of eliminating keratinocytes or dead skin cells. While alkaline hot water is comparable to soap as it is effective in removing oils and dirt off of skin. Tattoo-friendly.jp said that weak-acidic to neutral hot water is similar to human skin, so it has fewer stimuli and is the safest for sensitive skin.
Contains Sulfhydryl ions or Sulfur hydrogen and usually does not smell good because it smells like rotten eggs. Sciencedirect.com said that natural sulfur springs have long been used as a means to ease the symptoms of an array of inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
