About the Hot Springs

For centuries, people have flocked to the region to let the local hot springs soak their ills away, and today the three Ms — massage, mineral waters, and mud baths — are still a don’t-miss. Calistoga’s hot springs and mineral pools offer a plethora of health benefits! It’s no wonder people have been flocking to them for centuries from all around the world.

The hot springs were originally discovered when the native people, the Wappo tribe, first settled in Calistoga over 8,000 years ago. The Wappo used to call the land coo-lay-no-maock, meaning the “oven place,” and would soak and steam in the baths, taking in the healing powers of the waters.

The calcium and sodium bicarbonate minerals can also improve blood circulation, promote sleep, and reduce stress.
