Taupo Hot Springs Spa's mineral waters are rich in the following thermal elements:

Sodium Bicarbonate: Opens pores, cleanses the body, and acts as a mild antiseptic to relieve itching and skin irritations. This helps in the healing of skin ailments such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Sodium: When combined with chlorine (to become salt), is one of the principal constituents of lymph, and leaves the body feeling relaxed and refreshed. Salt also supports the natural conduction of electric currents.

Calcium and Sulphate: Are principle curers for diseases of the veins, bronchial infections, neuritis, sciatica, arthritis and woman's problems.

Sodium, Potassium and Chlorine: Give the body fluids their composition and stability.

Calcium and Magnesium: Vital for the growth and maintenance of bone.
