Its benefits have been known for over 100 years and are, in fact, the very reason a resort town sprung up in French Lick, Ind. Now, the world-famous Pluto water is in the limelight, once, again, as The Spa at French Lick develops treatments and products to take advantage of the natural wellness powers of the local water.
This shift to wellness-type treatments is an inspiration from the past. During the first half of the twentieth century, droves of people â€“ including politicians, actors, socialites and mobsters â€“ flocked to French Lick for its waters, which were thought to cure every malady from arthritis to malaria.
Today, the spa is expanding beyond the traditional soaking tub treatment to offer clients a chance to experience the full benefits of the natural wonder. The spa is teaming with Malibu Wellness to develop a line of Pluto water products to compliment the menu of spa services. Products in development include facial, body and foot scrubs as well as sea clay.
In addition to the traditional tub treatments, the spa is developing new services such as therapeutic foot soaks, mineral mud wraps and salt glow rubs.
With high concentrations of magnesium, sodium and potassium, the Pluto water is enriched with over 20 different minerals. Soaking mineral baths, available in the spa, offer many benefits, including stimulation of circulation, cell hydration and increased moisture retention. In addition, medical research shows soaking in the water detoxifies and eases muscle and joint tension to induce relaxation.
For those looking for the same luxury at home, the spa offers take-home Pluto Bath treatments. The distilled minerals are currently available in a 32 oz. souvenir bottle and sold for $29.95.The minerals will also be available in an easy-to-carry muslin bag, making the recommended treatment of three times per week for six weeks very affordable. As with all of the treatments, both in the spa and at home, an after-bath vitamin gel is included and is to be applied to the body afterwards to remove any residual minerals.
