Focus on guiding the transformation of Fujian hot springs from entertainment to health care

  As the temperature drops day by day, taking a dip in the steamy hot springs to completely relax the body and mind has become an important choice for many urbanites to travel in winter. Wi th the coming of winter, the number of tourists who soak in hot springs has increased greatly and they have begun to enter the peak season of the year.

  On the afternoon of December 21st, 2017, the reporter who participated in the large-scale interview of the 6th National Online Media "Fresh Fujian Jintang Tour" came to Xiamen Riyuegu Hot Spr ing Resort. On Thursday, off-weekends, the reporter saw in Xiamen Riyuegu Hot Spring Resort that there were many guests in the hot spring pool of the resort, mostly young couples or elderly people walking together.

  Sun Moon Valley Hot Spring Resort is located at the foot of Tianzhu Mountain in Xiamen, surrounded by mountains and beautiful scenery. It is a hot spring resort with national 4A-level tourist attractions, five-star tourist hotels and five-star hot springs at the same time. The overall style of the resort presents a strong tropical style in Southeast Asi a, with unique hot spring resources, beautiful natural environment and perfect leisure facilities, making it a "Xanadu" far from the hustle and bustle of the city.

  After the visit, the reporter interviewed Chen Guanyu, vice president of china tourism association Hot Spring Tourism Branch and president of Fujian Tourism Association Hot Spring Branch.

  Chen Guanyu: How high-quality hot spring resources are in our province?

  Hot springs in Japan, Guangdong, Yunnan and other places are well-known. Although they are far away from Xiamen, there are still many people who like to soak in hot springs to those places. In fact, we have rich hot spring resources at our doorstep, so we don’t have to go far.

  Our province is rich in hot spring resources, with 215 hot spring water outlets, ranking fifth in the country, mainly distributed in the east of Minqing-Yongding line, showing a gradual decrease in density from the eastern coastal areas to the western mountainous areas. Among them, Zhangzhou and Xiamen have the highest density.

  There are many ways to classify hot springs, and the common ones are chemical composition, physical properties, temperature, environment and PH value. If classified by chemical composition, there are mainly twelve types: carbonate springs, metasilicic acid springs, metaboric acid springs, fluorine springs, bromine springs, iodine springs, strontium springs, lithium springs, barium springs, iron springs, sulfur springs and radon springs. Almost every category in our province is covered, and many of them have reached the naming index of medical hot mineral water.

  Present situation: the prospect of late development can be expected

  According to incomplete statistics, at present, there are more than 100 hot spring enterprises with a certain scale in our province, and there are dozens of hot spring enterprises under development. Generally speaking, the development of hot spring tourism in our province started late, but the development prospect and trend are very rapid.

  The landscape of hot springs in our province is diverse and diverse, including coastal hot springs, valley hot springs, valley hot springs, Tulou hot springs, urban hot springs, garden hot springs and other types. It is particularly rare that there are urban hot springs, such as Zhangzhou and Fuzhou.

  Under the guidance of national and provincial tourism departments and local governments, the hot spring health care industry is entering the fast lane of development. For example, two years ago, the National Tourism Administration began to promote the star evaluation of hot springs. Last year, the Provincial Tourism Commission issued and implemented the "Construction and Service Specification for Health-preserving Tourism and Leisure Bases in Fujian Province", and identified a number of health-preserving demonstration construction bases, including hot spring health-preserving tourism and leisure bases. Some local governments have also increased their efforts to guide, support and develop the hot spring industry. For example, the Fuzhou government has built a hot spring museum. At the same time, some places are also promoting hot spring courses into campuses and communities.

  Therefore, although compared with other cities in China, the hot spring industry in our province started late, but the resources are rich and diverse, and the prospect of developing hot spring health tourism can be expected.

  Development: from entertainment to health care

  According to insiders, before, because people’s understanding of hot springs was still in the primary stage, many hot spring enterprises had to increase entertainment facilities, parent-child interaction and other entertainment elements to attract tourists, or take Chinese herbal medicine, herb tea, milk and red wine as gimmicks to attract consumers.

  Nowadays, with the deepening of people’s understanding of the health-care function of hot springs, the entertainment color of hot springs is fading, and the health-care flavor is getting stronger and stronger. The hot spring industry has intensified its in-depth excavation of the health-care functi on of hot springs and vigorously developed "Hot Springs Plus". Previously, many hot spring enterprises have introduced physical therapy, health care, diet and other health preservation methods of Chinese medicine.

  Chen Guanyu said that hot springs+medical beauty, hot springs+sports are new development models that the hot spring industry in our province is actively exploring at present. For example, Riyuegu Hot Springs are in contact with the medical beauty industry in Europe, considering introducing its medical beauty management system from Italy, and some hot spring enterprises are introducing their management systems in hot spring medical treatment and rehabilitation from Japan, where the hot spring development is relatively mature.

  Hot springs also have advantages and disadvantages, and people in the industry teach you — — Look at the license and star plaque

  Core Tip: The soaked water is hot, is it a hot spring? At present, there are all kinds of hot springs in the market, and the propaganda points are also varied. What is their effect? Are they all as magical as advertised? According to industry insiders, hot springs are also divided into true and false, legal and illegal. Consumers should keep their eyes open and pay attention to discrimination.

  How to make fake hot springs: well water and tap water are heated to pretend.

  Why are hot springs also true and false? First of all, we should know what a hot spring is. According to the definition of hot spring in China, hot spring refers to natural gushing from underground or artificial drilling with water temperature ≥ 25℃, and contains trace elements beneficial to human health. In other words, to meet the above necessary conditions, it can be called a hot spring.

  "Some merchants artificially create hot springs in order to set up selling points and gimmicks for business districts or real estate." Chen Guanyu said that some businesses will heat tap water and then add various hot spring powders to pretend to be hot springs.

  Chen Guanyu also said that, of course, it does not mean that all the hot springs that have been heated are fake hot springs. Some hot springs have low temperatures. In order to make consume rs experience more comfortable, some enterprises will choose to heat them. "But some low-temperature hot spring enterprises will also recycle hot springs to save costs. According to the relevant requirements of hot spring industry standards, in order to filter, disinfect and heat the used hot spring water for reuse, it is necessary to ensure that the composition and content of hot springs cannot be changed. In this process, hot spring enterprises will greatly increase their costs in order to meet the national industry standards.

  What to see in a good hot spring: water quantity, temperature and spring quality

  Studies have shown that soaking in hot springs can not only relax nerves and relieve stress, but also eliminate toxins and enhance physical fitness. So, what kind of hot springs are better?

  "Hot springs, like human fingerprints, are unique. The quality of each hot spring is different, and there is no such thing as good or bad."

  Chen Guanyu said that from the perspective of the industry, the quality of hot springs depends on three aspects: water quantity, temperature and spring quality. Generally speaking, a hot spring with large water volume, high temperature and good spring quality is a good hot spring.

  As for the quality of spring, it can be selected according to its own situation and the desired curative effect. For example, carbonate springs are rich in a large number of trace elements beneficial to human body, such as metasilicic acid, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and iron, and are suitable for patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. And sodium bicarbonate spring, the water contains rare element hydrogen, which has moisturizing function to the skin.

  Identification standard of authenticity: whether the license is complete.

  Hot springs are "deep in routines". For ordinary consumers, how to choose real hot springs and good hot springs? According to industry insiders, it depends on whether the relevant licenses of hot spring enterprises are complete. In addition, in recent years, the National Tourism Administration has carried out the star rating of hot springs, and the star rating of hot springs is also an important choice for consumers.

  "In order to protect mineral resources and ecological environment, the threshold for the exploitation and use of hot springs in China is very high." Chen Guanyu said that in order to exploit hot spring resources, it is necessary to complete the mining license and water intake license in accordance with the procedures stipulated by relevant national laws and reg ulations. Before handling the above two certificates, the related geological exploration and water resources evaluation work will take at least one year’s long-term observation as the basis, and it is impossible to obtain legal hot spring resources without the approval of relevant departments or the acquisition of qualified third-party wat er supply departments. Therefore, a complete license means that it is a real hot spring, a natural hot spring and a legal hot spring, so you can choose it with confidence.

  Chen Guanyu said that in 2011, China promulgated and implemented the first hot spring industry standard, and in 2015, the National Tourism Administration began to carry out the star rating of hot springs. Hot spring enterprises are divided into five levels. The higher the star rating, the higher the enterprise level. It is reported that at present, the five-star hot spring enterprises in our province are Xiamen Riyuegu Hot Spring, Liancheng Tianyi Hot Spring and Fuzhou Xishan Hot Spring, and the four-star hot spring enterprises are Fuzhou Gui ‘an Hot Spring, Fuzhou Yuanmai Hot Spring and Fuzhou Qidie Hot Spring. Just like choosing a star-rated hotel, a hot spring with a higher star rating means that the better, consumers can rest assured.

  Medical experts say that although hot springs are good, some people should be careful to soak.

  How to soak in hot springs is scientific?

  Core Tip: Is summer suitable for hot springs? Can children soak in hot springs? I don’t smell rotten eggs. Is it a fake hot spring? ”… … Many people still don’t know much about hot springs, and there are even many misunderstandings. The reporter asked the doctor to answer and popularize some questions that the citizens are more concerned about. Of course, the most important thing is to tell the public how to soak in hot springs is better and more scientific.

  Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases should be cautious.

  Hot spring bathing in autumn and winter has existed since ancient times, because the human body likes heat and is afraid of cold, which is the natural trend of the human body after the weather turns cold. The efficacy of hot springs is mainly reflected in two aspects, one is that temperature regulates human metabolism, and the other is that the mineral elements contained in them can be absorbed through the skin to achieve the effect of adjuvant therapy.

  Although the health benefits of hot springs have been recognized by the public, not everyone is suitable for soaking in hot springs. Hot spring temperature is high, the human body is easy to sweat a lot, the heartbeat is accelerated, the oxygen consumption of the heart is increased, and the blood supply of the heart, brain and kidney is easy to be insufficient, resulting in dizziness, chest tightness, dehydration and other symptoms. Therefore, patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases such as hypertension and heart disease, or people with weak constitution should be extra cautious when soaking in hot springs.

  Chen Guanyu reminded that when soaking in hot springs, the temperature should be from low to high, so that the body has a gradual adaptation process; The temperature should not be too high, so as not to burn, and the water should not pass through the chest, so as not to cause oppression; To control the time, each soaking time should not exceed 20 minutes. After soaking, get up, walk and rest for about 15 minutes, and replenish water. In addition, even in hot springs, you should not only dry up after soaking, but also rub your body red and let the water vapor out of your body to avoid moisture retention.

  Can children soak in hot springs? There is no saying that children are not suitable for soaking in hot springs, but children have weak adaptability and mediation ability to temperature. When soaking, pay attention to the temperature not to be too high to avoid being burned. Generally speaking, hot springs are suitable for cold constitution, but not for hot constitution. Many people think that summer is too hot to soak in hot springs. In fact, from the perspective of Chinese medicine, the sun’s spirit should rise in spring and summer. Now everyone is soaking in air-conditioned rooms in summer, but it is suitable for soaking in hot springs. Therefore, spring and summer are actually more suitable for soaking in hot springs.

  Step-by-step soaking and water washing

  In addition to the points reminded by Chen Guanyu, Zhang Tiehuang, secretary general of the Hot Springs Branch of Fujian Tourism Association, also summarized several hot springs "tips" for the public.

  Bathing and cleansing: Before soaking in hot springs, you should bathe and remove makeup, which is beneficial to absorb minerals in hot springs and make your skin healthier.

  Warm-up before bathing: Take a "warm-up bath" with hot spring water beside the pool, starting from the feet and slowly ascending. It is very important to take a warm-up bath before bathing in winter, which can prevent cerebral anemia.

  Breathing evenly: Breathing and inhaling can relax with the help of steam temperature and mineral emission.

  Replenish water: moderately replenish water when soaking in hot springs to regulate metabolism in the body.

  Get up slowly: sit up slowly when you come out of the bath, then get up and leave the bath gradually. Don’t stand up suddenly.

  Wash your body with clear water: after soaking in hot springs, you can wash your body with clear water, and use shampoo and bath lotion as little as possible to facilitate the absorption of minerals.

  Persistence is the most important thing: it is unrealistic to achieve the purpose of health preservation or beauty only by soaking in hot springs once or twice on holiday, and it must be adhered to for a long time to have an effect.
