My hot water fascination started as a teenager in the ‘70’s when my Mom dragged me to nudist colonies in Southern California. (You’ll have to come on the tour to get that story…) I soon discovered that hot water bubbles to the surface all over California and I frequent many hot springs all over the state. Living in San Francisco, I discovered eastern bathing rituals. When I met my future husband in Amsterdam, I understood that Europeans have a rich bathing history as well. Hot water is everywhere.
This year on a trip to Southern California to visit my daughter, we discovered a Korean spa nearby. Korean spa! I am so excited that there is a new discovery for me. As I lay on the warm tile floor, I thought to myself: I want to share this! I want to share the Korean scrub, the Japanese bath, the happy lithium water, the rich sulfur water, the thermal volcanic ash, the clay mud and more.
