HOT SPRINGS SAFETY TIPS

  • Safety First

    Consult with a doctor before soaking if you are pregnant, have diabetes, cancer, or suffer from cardiovascular disease.

  • Stay Hydrated

    Soaking in hot springs for extended periods can lead to dehydration. Drink water during and after your soak or even opt for an electrolyte drink. Consuming alcoholic beverages can enhance dehydration.

  • Take a break when you need one

    Soaking in hot springs can lead to overheating, especially with children.

  • Pro Tip: Cool Off Afterwards

    Take a 1 minute cool shower after your soak for increased circulation, pain relief, and improved digestion.

  • Be allergy aware

    Avoid soaking in our hot springs if you have a sulfur allergy.

Take a Cold Plunge!

Astoria’s Cold Plunge sits at right around 53 degrees, giving visitors brave enough to take the plunge a plethora of health benefits. In particular, alternating between hot and short cold soaks have been found to increase circulation, reduce inflammation in muscles, and assist the body in healing damaged tissue. Plus, visitors may notice an elevated heart rate, adrenaline, and the release of endorphins, which could ease pain and lighten mood. 

Cold immersion does not come without its risks. To learn more about these risks, the Conservancy recommends consulting with your physician to learn if the Cold Plunge is the right experience for you. 

Follow with a warm soak for full benefits!
