There are many wellness centres spread across near and far offering various solutions to health problems, beauty treatments, relaxation and so on. The increased usage of these facilities indicates the level of stress people tend to live with these days. Though the advertisements are created to pull customers promising them various benefits, one has to really ask if the treatments on offer really work at all. Many professionals in the health and beauty industry agree that going to a day spa Darlinghurst, weeklong stay or even a month long stay at a resort does have some benefits. Experts say that the feeling of being pampered and taken care of is one of the main reasons people visit such places. After all human touch and the notion of being cared for help in dealing with daily life stresses better. It also tends to create a better mindset reducing quite a number of health issues. There has been numerous research papers published that state that regular wellness treatment reduced workers taking sick leave and even increased their level of motivation.
So much so that some companies in Japan offer such benefits to their workers. But even though there are many benefits, there are equal risk factors as well. This is because these treatment facilities are required to have a level of safety standard, however some may always not adhere to the requirements. For an example there was a popular incident in a luxury cruise ship sauna that nearly killed all the passengers from Legionnaires’ disease, which is a type of pneumonia. Experts say that communal water sources used in wellness centres are potential hubs for dangerous germs and other organisms to thrive on. Some spas are accused of not changing water at all and only using chlorine to disinfect the contents. Many professionals are of the opinion that chlorine can kill only certain types of bacteria in the water, while others with biofilm will hardly be affected.
And people going to these places to take treatment for skin problems are potentially at risk because even a small tear in the skin can let in bacteria or harmful germs that can worsen conditions. Apart from the risks, there are also doubts as to whether treatments offered give lasting results or not. For example some centres actually make promises about getting rid of cellulite. Experts believe that what really happens is only a temporary change in the skin texture due to the use of massage Darlinghurst techniques and other skin probing treatments. These measures create swelling in the skin so that for a short time the dimples in the skin seem to have disappeared. So as you see, these centres cannot provide complete wellness or healing for ailments as promised. And the risks are far too great to completely depend on them as well. Therefore the next time you plan to visit a wellness centre, it is best to take in only the relaxation and feel good aspects seriously and not expect miracles.
