2020 Is The Year of Wellness
Finding a moment to take care of our wellness may not always be easy, but it is something we all should try to prioritize as often as we can. It has been a goal of mine to start focusing on ways I can take care of my mind, body, and spirit. Setting my intentions to be kinder to myself by practicing more yoga and meditation. While also finding ways to indulge in resources that encouraged wellness and relaxation. You don’t need to buy all kinds of fufu stuff to start intentionally going after your wellness journey. Sometimes all you need is a nice mineral soaking session, which doesn’t require a lot of money.
Mineral Bath Heaven
I heard about SunWater Spa from a co-worker of mine a while back. And finally set off to check it out to see if it was a worthwhile place to share with all of you. It’s not really possible to go wrong with a warm hot tub, but this was no ordinary hot tub. At the SunWater Spa in Manitou Springs, they have the soaking tubs connected to a mineral spring. This creates an enriched mineral soaking experience with a ton of health benefits.
“Our soaking tubs are filled with mineral water from the famous Seven Minute Spring; the same water which flows from Manitou’s karst aquifer. These health-giving waters filter through deep underground cracks, crevasses, and rock faults, infusing the water with the health-granting minerals.”SunWater Spa
Sharing All The Wellness Spots in Colorado
The temperature of our mineral water is raised generally to 100 to 104 degrees. As the tubs heat, cedar oil is extracted, first shifting the color of the water towards a yellow tint, sometimes followed by a rich, dark red. By drawing the oils out of the wood, SunWater Spa is essentially creating a cedar tea. This unique process introduces the soothing and healing properties of the cedar oil, promoting healthy skin, a soothed respiratory system, and an enjoyable, relaxing, and aromatic sensation.SunWater Spa
This was exactly what my achy body needed. It was truly an amazing evening watching the sunset over the mountains. One of the best activities I have experienced here in Colorado. I will certainly be on a mission to scope out the rest of the Hot Springs here in Colorado. And I will have to come back to this spa and try some of their treatments and wellness classes so I can share my experiences with you. I need any excuse I can get to embrace another perfect evening like this one. If you ever are visiting or if you live in Colorado, this spot is a must-see.
Mineral Spa + Pizza = The Perfect Date Night
After we had a soak in the tub we finished the night with trying a new restaurant in the city of Colorado Springs. Bambino’s was a great spot for pizza. They even had vegan pizza that tasted like the real deal. Honestly one of the best pizza places I have ever been to in Colorado. The sauce, the vegan cheese, the crust, and all the vegetables all melded together and turned out to be my perfect pizza. And bonus, it was super in-expensive. If you end up heading south of Denver, you will have to consider making this pit spot. A mineral bath and pizza night really made for a much needed relaxing getaway with my love. I cannot wait to go back.
