Mineral Springs Soaks

As the only mineral springs site in operation in NY state, aside from Saratoga Springs, Clifton Springs offers a unique opportunity for those seeking relief from specific ailments like pain, or those looking to simply relax and rejuvenate with results-oriented treatments, in a centrally-located community setting.  Clients may take advantage of the waters by scheduling a bath, or they can combine the baths with other services like massage, Acupuncture, or Chiropractic for therapeutic benefits, particularly pain relief. Most of the center’s signature treatments also incorporate the use of the mineral water in other methods besides soaking to enhance the therapeutic effects of the treatment.

BENEFITS OF OUR WATER

Soaking in sulphur-rich mineral water has anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving), and antibacterial effects.

 

Clifton Springs History

 

Clifton Springs has a rich medical history dating back to 1850 when Dr. Henry Foster founded the Clifton Springs Sanitarium on the site of sulphur mineral springs, which were revered by generations of Native American healers.  At that time, the field of medicine was still a very new science and his Sanitarium combined the most advanced medical technology of the day with spiritual and psychological counseling, recommendations for diet and nutrition, and therapies that included herbal medicine, homeopathy, massage, and hydrotherapy. New York State has a rich history of the use of mineral springs for healing, and during the Victorian Era, "taking the waters" was a summer-time ritual across the state, drawing patrons from the whole region and world-wide. Each spring site had distinctive mineral composition specializing in treatments for specific conditions.

The historical traditions of using mineral waters therapeutically (the technical term is balneotherapy) diminished in the United States over the years.  Although there are active mineral springs throughout the country, many of them geothermal springs, most of them are not associated with medicine as we know it today.  In Europe and countries like Israel, Russia, Japan, and Korea, balneotherapy is widely recognized as a therapeutic tool, and is not only used regularly, but a significant amount of research is conducted on the therapeutic use of mineral waters, seaweeds, muds, and salts. Some countries include treatment at a spa as part of the national health insurance coverage for certain medical conditions like osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis, particularly those employing sulphur mineral waters.
