Riverbend Hot Springs offers guests of Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch a 10% discount off overnight lodging.
The Riverbend Hot Springs is located in the downtown Historic Bath House District in Truth or Consequences on the banks of the Rio Grande, where it sits upon a natural geothermal spring.
The water comes out of the ground at a temperature between 98 and 115 degrees Fahrenheit. A laboratory analysis of the water has traces of 38 different minerals, including chloride, sodium, bicarbonate, calcium, sulfate, potassium, silicate, silicon, magnesium, and lesser minerals. The pH is about 7, or neutral, and there is no odor to the water.
Historically, many cultures have acknowledged the benefits of taking an annual rest at a healing place. The hot mineral waters were once used by the Apache warriors to heal their battle wounds.
In modern days, the spa holiday has grown to include pampering in largely artificial settings using high-tech machinery and chlorinated water. Older cultures believe in the efficacy of “taking the waters”. At Riverbend Hot Springs, the source of the healing waters is an underground volcanic lake. The waters rise at temperatures as high as 108° Fahrenheit and have been tapped to provide pure thermal waters for the spa’s multiple pools. Their mineral content is a particularly beneficial (and odorless) combination of salts and minerals.
