Medical Caution

Soaking in the hot tubs increases your body temperature and is not recommended for people with high blood pressure, hypertension, heart disease, and during pregnancy.

It is very important that you:

  • Keep yourself hydrated drinking plenty of water
  • Be mindful of the duration in the tub, give yourself a break from the hot water approximately every 15 minutes to allow your body to cool
  • Always stand up slowly, soaking too long and getting up quickly can cause dizziness and possibly fainting

Do not partake in alcohol and drugs before soaking in the hot tubs.

Please check with your Doctor if you have a medical condition or concerns to ensure this is suitable for you.

You will have 2 considerable hills to walk up & down, please bring a flashlight and comfortable footwear. If you need assistance please speak with our Esalen Staff upon check in.

Please know that the Esalen Baths are clothing optional.
