Soakember is a virtual event that celebrates the health benefits of hot springs, hydrothermal therapies,
and nature-based wellness activities. 

The idea of Soakember was born during the pandemic from the thought of connecting with hot spring locations and visitors around the world, as countries enforced social distancing practices.
Soakember creates a platform allowing hot spring locations to “Soak Together and Heal Together.”

The 2022 Soakember theme will be chosen at this year’s Hot Springs Connection

Theme 1
Vitality Through Water- highlights modern hydrothermal therapy and traditional wellness practices that enhance well-being.
Theme 2
Natural Health Optimization– explores the positive effects of nature immersion on mental and physical health.

On November 13th, 2021, fourteen hot springs in more than five countries worldwide celebrated centuries of soaking tradition during Soakember 2021. 

The theme was that hot springs support all people’s health and well-being through the healing and immune-boosting benefits of Mother Nature’s original wellness destination while celebrating the diversity of soaking practices worldwide.
