Healing Water

July 21, 2023

This weekend is going to be HOT! We invite you to take a moment and enjoy the healing benefits of the sound of water. This cold, clear water flows straight out of the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer and into the Little Spokane River at our Waikiki Springs Nature Preserve. Looking at a body of water reduces heart rate and blood pressure, and can increase feelings of relaxation.

So on this Fri-YAY afternoon, do something good for you. (And if you’re interested in the science to back it up, check out this article based on research done at UC Davis about the healing benefits of looking at water.) Stay safe and cool this weekend, and remember not to take our beautiful lakes and rivers here in the Inland Northwest for granted.
