This month, Gillian went to  Ischia, Italy, to experience the benefits of a thermal spa. Ischia is a volcanic island and the home of hot springs and volcanic mud.

Benefits of thermal spas include improved circulation due to the millions of free carbon particles, helping skin problems from the sulfur which can aid acne and eczema. It can detoxify the body and the nervous system, boost immunity and relieve anxiety from the warming heat which soothes muscles and joints.
