Classification of mineral waters is based on minimum threshold concentrations of particular minerals. Historically, Clifton Springs was classified as SULPHUR, which means that sulphur was the predominant element measured. The therapeutic threshold for sulphur is 1mg/L, or 1ppm! Clifton Springs historical records indicate the waters contained approximately 200ppm sulphur, with a high level of magnesium as well.
BENEFITS OF OUR WATER
Sulphur is therapeutic for conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, other musculoskeletal pain conditions, respiratory infections, and skin conditions. Soaking in sulphur-rich mineral water has anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving), and antibacterial effects.
About Bathing at The Springs
As one of the only mineral springs site in operation in NY state, 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.
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.

Signature Treatments – Moor Peat Wraps
We combine several elements into one service for full-body experience based on the Eastern European tradition of using moor peat for therapeutic purposes. Moor peat is an organic product resulting from natural decomposition of plants over a period of thousands of years. Its uncanny ability to heal, nourish and detoxify has been observed by people for millennia and has been used scientifically in European Spas for well over a century.
Our therapy-grade moor peat is harvested from the western region of the Czech Republic. Research has shown that moor peat has thermal effects by trapping heat and reducing the rate at which the temperature drops. This essentially creates a custom heat pack with the bonus of a myriad of nutrients, natural trace elements, minerals, and humic substances easily absorbed through human skin.
Moor therapy is used for pain relief, arthritis, post-surgery recovery, and muscle recovery in sport medicine. Moor therapy is indicated for inflammatory conditions of the joints and muscles, circulatory complaints, skin concerns, and autoimmune diseases. Therapeutic moor peat is skin-toning, re-mineralizing, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying.
Moor Peat Detox Wrap $95
Our Moor Peat is blended with sulphur mineral water & essential oils renowned for their detoxifying and diuretic properties. While you rest wrapped in the moor peat blend, your therapist massages your head and feet to offer a deep sense of relaxation. The session concludes with a soak in our sulphur mineral bath where you remove the wrap.
Pain Relief Wrap $98
