Spa Treatments for Eczema


Eczema is an inflammation of the skin and may be associated with an allergic reaction, although the cause is often unknown. Childhood eczema is sometimes found behind the knee or in the bend of an elbow and will often clear up by the time the child reaches puberty.

Eczema affects more than 15 million Americans and ten percent of all children have eczema.

The most common of all eczemas is Atopic and has been linked with asthma and hay fever. People of all ages can be affected, but there seems to be a trend for it within some families. 


Common causes of eczema are allergies secondary to digestive disorders and immune deficiencies.

A common symptom is itchiness that can become very uncomfortable. The skin has an overall dryness, can become very red, and highly inflamed. Persistent scratching only worsens the condition and can cause skin infections.  During test-tube studies at Showa University in Tokyo, published in the Archives of Dermatological Research, a major component of green tea, EGCg, seemed to neutralize the effects of a toxin thought to trigger eczema.

Green Tea Wraps and Facials may help minimize some of the symptoms.  Green Tea also has many benefits when it comes to weight loss, wrinkles and acne

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.
