Berkeley Springs State Park is located in the center of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. The Bathhouse first opened in 1930. Since then, thousands have enjoyed the variety of baths and treatments in the warm mineral waters that flow from the springs at a constant temperature of 74.3 degrees Fahrenheit. The springs discharge from five principle sources and numerous lesser ones, all within a hundred yards, approximately 2,000 gallons of clear, sparkling water per minute. Bathing in the springs has been popular since before the days of George Washington.
Below are some of the Spa services:
Not a whirlpool or Jacuzzi, but 750 gallons of mineral water in a ceramic tile, walk-in private tub (can be shared with someone of the same sex). Heated to a maximum water temperature of 102 degrees Farenheit, the Roman Bath is a tub big enough to stretch out in, to float, read, or just relax. There are metal railings for exercise use and safety. Bath time is 15 minutes if you are also having a massage; 20 minutes without a massage.
Luxuriate in a 150 gallon whirlpool bathtub with mineral water heated to a maximum temperature of 102 degrees Fahrenheit. Bath time with a massage is 15 minutes; 20 minutes without a massage. Footrests and pillows are available.
Enjoy thirty or sixty minutes of Swedish-style full-body rub down with massage oil in a traditional mixture of pure olive oil and 190 proof ethyl alcohol. Massagers are trained and instructed. There are female massagers on the women’s side and male massagers on the men’s side. Sensitive areas will be fully draped at all times during your massage.
The saunas are heated. The steam treatment may be included with a Bath/Massage package.
At the end of your massage you may take a five minute shower or you may elect to shower immediately following your bath. Another option is to follow your treatment with powder and no shower-this is especially good for those with dry skin.
