High blood pressure affects more than 1 in 4 adults all over the world, and the consequences could be detrimental to an individual’s health. It can cause blood clots and the weakening of the blood vessels of the brain. Through massage, it can help with blood circulation by pushing the lymph fluid and draining it - lowering the blood pressure of the individual. Other spa treatments that can help with blood circulation is the jacuzzi and the sauna. The warmth of both these treatments can help reduce hypertension.


With many spa treatments, there is the opportunity to detoxify the body - For instance, a trip to the ‘sauna’ is perfect for getting rid of impurities in your pores. Through sweating, it eliminates the water in your system, helping to reduce levels of zinc, lead, copper and nickel. Relaxing in saunas is highly recommended by doctors as an effective method to get rid of toxins.


Stress, depression and anxiety are prevalent nowadays. Distress can cause your immune system, mental health and overall wellbeing, and because of this, millions of working days have been lost.
