For a while now, I’ve been hearing lot’s of great things about a spa in Southern California called Glen Ivy Hot Springs. So when my sisters were in town I knew it was the perfect time to check it out. So glad we did! After getting our map (this place is huge!!) we went to the locker room, put our stuff into the locker and ran outside to soak it all in. I was so excited!!Our first stop was Club Mud. This California red clay is a silky soft paste that we lathered ourselves with. After playing in the mud pool we then hung out as the clay dried.
INSIDER TIP: Wear a darker swimsuit for this treatment as the red clay stained our light colored suits.
We washed up and headed to the Mineral Baths. These baths are 104 degrees of sulfur rich springs!
Next up was the Lounge Pool. This shallow pool is equipped with blue floats and chairs. I could have stayed in there forever! Next stop was the Hot & Cold Plunge Pools. These pools were quite the experience. The hot pool was 103 and cold pool was 60!!! After one minute you plunge into the next pool. You repeat thus process for about 10 minutes. It boosts blood flow and flushes away toxins at the same time.(Picture is from Glen Ivy website.)
Next was the Saline Pool. Just like it’s name this pool is filed with Epsom salt. Epsom salts are rich in magnesium and sulfates, both of which have a therapeutic effect on easing tight muscles and joints and cramps and inflammation in the body. (Picture is from Glen Ivy website.)
We ended our day with a visit to the Vista Pool. This mineral pool is filled with the sulfur, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium content. We lounged here for a bit before we headed home. We had such a nice day! Can’t wait to come back!!
