Notes on hot spring baths

  • Before bathing, bathe and warm up your body. Then slowly sprinkle mineral water on the body to gradually adapt to the temperature.
  • Firstly, use your leg to test the water temperature and then soak the body in water slowly.
  • You should only be soaked in water for 3-10 minutes at the first time, then rest for a while before continue bathing in the water. Every soaking should not exceed 15 minutes.
  • When leaving the hot springs, stand up slowly to avoid dizziness. After a soak, take a rest about 30 minutes and drink water to supply water for the body.
  • After soaking into the hot mineral water, the mineral water in the skin will gradually be absorbed into the body, so you just use a light towel.
