This Wellness Wednesday, like last week,we are continuing to highlight the health benefits of water. This week we are featuring the sulphur springs of the Nature Island. Thought to be magical by Dominican ancestors, sulphur spring water is rich in key minerals such as calcium and sodium bicarbonate and offers many restorative properties.
Benefits of Sulphur Water
- Increases circulation and oxygen flow within the body
- Relaxes tense muscles and relieves stress
- Rejuvenates the skin. Rich minerals can help solve certain skin problems like eczema and acne. It can also smooth and soften dry, rough skin.
- Provides pain relief for certain ailments such as arthritis
Deep in nature volcanic activity provides naturally occurring hot springs, which produce mineral-rich water. On Dominica there are dozens of natural sulphur springs, and warm soaks can be enjoyed in many beautiful locations including Wotten Waven and Bubble Beach Spa in Soufriere.
According to Uncommon Caribbean, “Sitting in the warm pool is therapeutic in and of itself, especially after all the hiking and adventuring you’re apt to do in Dominica. The fantastic view of Scotts Head, the southernmost point of Dominica, off in the distance only adds to the healing powers of this special place.”
Visits to the hot springs are part of our weekly scheduled tours and can be arranged with the front desk.
To experience the benefits of sulphur without leaving the tranquility of Rosalie Bay, the Gló Spa offers a Seaweed and Sulphur Wrap. The treatment aims to relieve tired muscles and leave you feeling rejuvenated.
We also incorporate small quantities of sulphur in other treatments for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, or as a treatment for acne and other skin blemishes. We welcome you to try any of these treatments on your next visit to Rosalie Bay Resort.
