Summer brings hot days and sunny hours that we all enjoy. But when temperatures are high, our body looks for ways to cool down and maintain its optimum operating temperature of 37°C. While the body reacts by freezing when it is cold, it tries to cool down by sweating when it is hot. An effective and healthy way to cool down in summer is to visit a thermal spa - and there are many good reasons to do so.

Natural harmony through body-temperature water

In thermal baths you will find pools where the water temperature is close to body temperature. This has a wonderful effect: it creates a feeling of returning to our origins, an embryonic sense of well-being that is felt in warm water. This soothing warmth helps the body to relax and regenerate.

The difference to conventional swimming pools

Compared to swimming pools in outdoor and indoor pools, which generally have temperatures between 26-29°C, thermal pools offer a much more pleasant experience. While cooler water has a refreshing effect at first, if you stay for a longer period of time without much movement, you start to feel cold - a natural defense mechanism of the body that counteracts the desired cooling effect. In body-temperature pools, on the other hand, your body remains in a harmonious balance without the unpleasant feeling of freezing.

The healing power of thermal water

But the water in thermal baths is not just warm - it is rich in minerals that penetrate deep into the body and have healing effects. These regenerate, stimulate and activate the entire body. The relaxing effect on the muscles also helps to reduce stress and find inner peace.

Long-term health benefits

In the long term, bathing in thermal baths offers even more health benefits. Regular immersion in the mineral-rich thermal waters can help to alleviate skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, boost circulation and strengthen the immune system. The combination of heat and minerals also helps to relieve muscle and joint pain, which is particularly beneficial for people with rheumatic complaints.

A holistic feel-good experience

A visit to a thermal spa therefore offers a holistic wellness experience. In addition to the soothing warmth and healing power of thermal water, you can also take advantage of numerous wellness offers in many thermal spas to bring body and mind into harmony. From relaxing massages to revitalizing sauna sessions - in thermal spas you will find everything you need for a healthy and pleasant cool-down in summer.

Treat yourself to a break from hectic everyday life and experience the unique combination of body-temperature water and healing minerals. Visit the Caracalla Therme in Baden-Baden, for example, to enjoy a healthy cool-down in summer that regenerates your body and refreshes your soul. Immerse yourself in a world of well-being and health - your body and mind will thank you for it.
