The unique mineral spring, which is a constant 36 degrees Celsius, is Mother Nature's way to revive a tired body and soul. The skin is toned by the minerals which are absorbed. Mineral springs are also beneficial for those suffering from Chronic Fatigue syndrome, as they replenish the body with trace elements, salts and minerals.
