The curative power of water to soak in or to drink is not new.  Ancient Native American artifacts can be found around the sites of the wells.  Boquillas Hot Springs has crude tubs carved into rocks long ago by the Native Americans.  The world wide use of hot springs can be traced back tens of thousands of years.
