THERE MUST BE SOMETHING IN THE WATER
Steamboat Hot Springs is a natural spring with geothermal mineral water. Mineral water is defined as water that contains a large quantity of dissolved minerals or gases. Most mineral water from natural springs contains calcium carbonate, magnesium, sodium sulfate, and is impregnated with carbon dioxide. All of these elements are found in the Steamboat water. In addition, our water also contains sulfur, lithia, soda and a high level of silica.

HISTORY OF STEAMBOAT
Steamboat acquired its name from cracks in the earth emitting steam. Sheds constructed over these cracks provided steam baths and a sixty foot geyser was a major attraction. In 1861 a 34 bed hospital was constructed by Dr. Ellis to treat patients using the natural healing properties of the hot springs. Dr. Ellis received his hydrotherapy training in Bavaria and Steamboat was the first location in the world outside of Bavaria to apply the hydrotherapy techniques later replicated in the famous Spas of Europe.
