One of the leading professional men of Napa county is Dr. Henry J. Aalders, of Calistoga, proprietor of the famous
hot springs and mud baths which bear his name and where many remarkable remedial results have been obtained. A
native of the state of South Dakota, he was born on the 22d of January, 1884. He secured his elementary education
in the public schools of his native community and then attended and was graduated from the Chicago College of Osteopathy.
Dr. Aalders first entered upon the active practice of his profession in Kansas City, Missouri, where he remained
until 1911, when he moved to Los Angeles. He was engaged in practice there and in San Francisco until 1919, when
he came to Calistoga and established his present place. He has been very busy since locating here, handling an
average of one hundred patients daily in summer and a goodly number all through the year. He has twenty separate
cottages for guests, and the increase in his business has necessitated the recent addition of thirty more rooms.

these being aided immeasurably by the wonderful curative properties of the hot water and mud baths which are given
as needed. The Doctor is a master of his profession and has achieved a fine record since coming here, having effected
many very radical cures. In connection with his professional work, a beauty shop also is operated and has proved
