The tradition of bathing in hot water goes back millennia due to the abundance of thermal waters in Japan. The Japanese learned early on about the powerful healing and release gained by sitting in hot water surrounded by the beauty of nature. Ten Thousand Waves has taken this model and transplanted it to New Mexico, where nature looks very different but is no less beautiful. They offer a unique ‘Japanese-adobe’ esthetic, combining the traditional with state-of-the-art technology.
