Introduction to the features of Kawayu’s hot springs:
Thanks to the gift from active volcanos, pure Sulphur springs are only produced in Yangmingshan National Park of northern Taiwan. In Kawayu Spa, the flowing hot springs constantly drain into our sedimentation tank for backup. Therefore, we never reused any hot springs.
At Kawayu Spa, we offer three types of hot springs; Radium spring, Sulphur spring, and Mineral spring.
Radium spring is a natural spring emerging out of the surface of volcanos. It looks transparent and greeny, of which pH scale merely indicates 2. Such spring contains slight traces of radium(Ra) and is only discovered in Akita, Japan and Beitou, Taiwan. Radium spring can help relax muscles and bones, so it is ideal for alleviating problems associated with arthritis.
Sulphur spring is an artificial hot spring produced by the streams absorbing volcanic gases and geothermal energy. It looks as cloudy as milk, and its pH scale indicates between 4 to 5. According to the research from Taipei Veterans General Hospital, bathing in Sulphur spring benefits bronchus to expand, also making airways open, and improving lung ventilation.
Mineral spring is a hot spring with neutral carbonate, it just looks as clear as normal water, but with the smell of iron. The spring contains iron precipitates and can help alleviate problems associated with rheumatism.
