Now is the time of reconnecting, reuniting and rebirth for our global community

Happy World Bathing Day 2024


World Bathing Day


On June 22, people around the planet are invited to celebrate humanity’s common connection to water through the practice of hot springs bathing. The simple act of immersing oneself in thermal hot springs water has the power to break down barriers between people of different backgrounds and to bring communities closer together. At this time of great change, bathing reminds us of the interconnections between the wellbeing of our communities and the wellbeing of our planet.

2022 World bathing day


Check out the official World Bathing Day 2022 posters featuring images shared by participants from 17 countries, and the Global Sound Bath video compilation with musical artists performing at their local bathing places. A fantastic celebration of ‘Healing Together’!
