This is not a modern trend, but a millennial habit : Greeks, Romans and Etruscans have left their testimony celebrating the virtues of the waters of the hot springs of Southern Tuscany.
Today the hot springs have gained great consideration because of the discover of the real benefits earned by the immersion in this kind of water, and especially, because of the chaotic life we lead, that requires us to dedicate part of our time to the personal care. There is no better way to relax than a stay in the wild and natural environment of the Hilltop Towns, where you can reach the many hot springs of Southern Tuscany with a brief transfer.. In order to increase this kind of tourism, in the last years the thermal centers have evolved, establishing real SPAs able to offer services and specific therapies focused to the complete wellbeing of the guests.

Water as a therapy
Immersing in this water or getting dirty with the mud for example by playing with it, make us regress, and according to a fascinating symbolism studied by the psycho-analysis, it seems to be a mechanism that allow us to become young again, back in the time when mother used to take care of us. This “return to the pureness”, but especially the healing and protective connection inside the pools, can be seen as a complex relation between I and Subconscious. We can speak about a research of the soul, of our origin and our identity, that bring men to discover the water as a mean to solve some diseases in a natural way.
The waters of the hot springs of Southern Tuscany are used for many organic pathologies, in relation to their chemical composition. We can think about waters that contain arsenic and iron, that suit particularly for depression, while waters with bromine or carbon, and radio-active waters, can help anxious people.
We can assume that therapeutic waters (often synonymous of thermal waters) have characteristics able to carry out a sort of “pharmacologic activity” that prevents, and rehabilitates, physical and psychological diseases.
Waters are not all equal, and they do not solve the same problems:
- The action of sulfurous waters, like that of Saturnia, is mainly dermatological, in fact they fight acne and dermatitis
- Waters with arsenic is the best for the dry pathologies of the skin, like psoriasis
- On the other hand, waters with carbon allow a specific action pointed to the circulatory system.
