Making the Pilgrimage to Glen Ivy Hot Springs









I recently made the pilgrimage to Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, California to celebrate my close friend’s birthday. Nothing can surpass a day spent with girlfriends on pool floats sipping sangria; soaking in mineral pools; basking in the mud baths; swimming in the salt water pool; and being pampered with a massage and/or a facial, if you so choose.

My only complaint is the days spent here are far too short. Why is it that the 9:00 am – 6:00 pm work days seem to crawl like a tortoise and a Glen Ivy day zips by like a bullet train? This is why I continue to make the 1.5-2 hour drive with my foot pressed firmly on the accelerator and a few friends to share the drive. One cannot really get enough of a good thing!

 If you are not as fortunate as those of us in Southern California to have Glen Ivy within driving distance; by all means check out your local day spa or resort facility. Create a day to remember and share it with your close friends.

 Here is an excerpt from my book, “Awakening the Wise Woman Within You – Reigniting Your Passion, Purpose, and Playfulness” from the Chapter entitled, Nurture Relationships with Nearby Friends and Family:

  • Gather a group of your favorite girlfriends for a spa day. Book some treatments; have your spa lunch together; lounge in the dry sauna/steam room/and Jacuzzi; and/or swim if there are pools. Be queens for the day and soothe away any tension with the calming waters and spa services. Most cities have an array of day spas to choose from. Research to find the one your friends’ recommend and/or the one which meets your needs.
  • If you live in Southern California visit Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa in Corona, California for the day with its luxuriant pools; mud baths; mineral waters; a floating pool; Roman Jacuzzis; and full services, including water aerobics classes. With the lush landscape and mountains in the background, it is as if you’ve escaped to the tropical Hawaiian Islands.
  • If you have any extra time, book a hotel room nearby so you can continue your mode of relaxation rather than returning to the freeway and life as you know it so soon


  1. Mineral water is great for the health because it can provide trace minerals for the body. ,*;’`



  2. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate


    • Hello Stefanie,
      I’m glad you’ve enjoyed my blog entries. So you are aware, my blog has been moved to my website: in case you would like to continue to follow it.
      My suggestions for new bloggers are the following:
      –Select a theme that you’re most interested in writing on. For example mine is Women’s Health (Body, Mind, and Spirit).
      –When you can write blog entries in 2 or 3 part series. This inspires your readers to return to your blog for more information.
      –Be consistent with your blog. Try to write one article each week at minimum (around the same time-frame so your readers know when to expect it).
      –As you’re building your following, schedule guest bloggers. They can help attract people to your site.
      –Post links to your blog on social media sites and also on any websites which match the people you want to reach. Remember to offer helpful information to your audience (if you can make their lives easier in any way, you will gain a following).
      I wish you all the best with your blog!
      Suzan : )


  3. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already ;
    ) Cheers!
