The role of spas in pain management

November 8, 2011

Spas have been traditionally linked to relaxation and beauty. However, there are a growing number of spas that are now focusing on pain management relief. These spas offer various treatments and therapies aimed at helping patients with all kinds of pathologies.

Stress is the mother of several health conditions and spas continue to provide different options to treat it. Massages not only offer relaxation but also a valid alternative for pain relief. For example, Ayuverdic massages (among other massages) provide relief to people suffering from muscular afflictions, inflammatory diseases and arthritis.

Water is still an essential part of the different treatments offered by spas. In fact, hydrotherapy techniques based on thermal baths are ideal solutions for people affected by rheumatism and digestive problems.

Substances like marine algae and mud, which are rich in minerals and other elements, offer an additional therapeutic solution for pain management. Several spas are using the so-called Algae therapy to reduce pain in patients suffering from bone injuries, muscular problems, and rheumatism.

Thanks to all these kinds of therapies and treatments, spa centers offer today an alternative and natural way to fight the pain provoked by different illnesses. These non-invasive treatments not only reduce the pain but also provide the patient with the opportunity to relax and feel better.
