Mercey Hot Springs

Locations Effect

The Locations Effect Facebook page provides stories and photos about “feel-good” locations. The Locations Effect website (now archived) served as repository for people with chronic illness to note how they felt when visiting different locations – information that is now collected in the Locations Ratings section here on the Paradigm Change website. (Pictured: Mercey Hot Springs, a “feel-good location” about two hours from the San Francisco Bay Area.)
