Spa Treatments for Circulation


Circulatory system problems arise when there is limited blood flow to the legs, hands, heart and rest of the body. The blood vessels become blocked as a fatty substance called plaque builds up and hardens and constricts the walls of the arteries and veins. This interrupts the normal flow of blood through the vessels and results in poor circulation.


A variety of conditions can be brought on by poor circulation such as high blood pressure, hypertension, stroke, varicose veins, peripheral artery disease, heart disease, kidney damage, aneurysms, arteriosclerosis, Raynaud’s disease and phlebitis.

If you have poor circulation, Hydrotherapy which is popular in European spas, is believed to benefit the circulatory system.  Hydrotherapy is moving into U.S. spas, from simple herbal baths to underwater massages like Watsu. "Just being submerged in warm water for 10 to 30 minutes can lower blood pressure, increase oxygen flow, and raise your metabolic rate," says German M. Schleinkofer, bath master at the Kneipp School of Hydrotherapy in Germany.

Vacuum Suction Cupping technique, can improve blood circulation and create a balance in the body’s energy force. The process involves passing a flame over the inside of a glass cup and then cupping it over the affected area. The pressure inside the cup helps to reduce pain. Overtime, it will improve illnesses such as rheumatism, coldness in the body and joint pain.

You should discuss your health needs with your physicians before considering any spa treatments. Spa Treatments are complimentary treatments to medication, exercise and dietary changes that your physician prescribes.
