Balneotherapy is a natural approach to physical therapy using water and minerals. Dating back centuries, the Greeks and Romans would bathe in mineral-rich hot springs to treat a variety of ailments. It is thought to promote healing by increasing circulation, encouraging detox and easing stress. Today, people all over the world continue to seek out hot springs for a therapeutic soak. In water immersion, the skin’s absorption of the minerals can be considerable, especially with total body immersion. A way to replicate the art of balneotherapy at home is to add mineral-rich salts to your bath.
Magnesium is a necessary element to hundreds of biochemical reactions occurring in the body on a constant basis—approximately 300 enzymatic reactions. Magnesium contributes to the manufacture of energy, cardiovascular function, and cellular reproduction. Strong bones and teeth, radiant skin, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous system, and relaxed body and mind, are all made possible by sufficient magnesium in our cells.
